Bare Basics About Formula One
The International Automobile Federation, the FIA is the premier body
in charge of licensing and regulating Formula One motor racing events all over
the world. This year, with the ouster of Bahrain, India became one of the 20
countries to host the F1 racing event.
For motor racing fans worldwide, F1 races are unique, mainly because
of the speeds involved in such races. This single seat racing event is a true
test of man and machine, with speeds up to 360 km/hour being recorded normally.
Indian fans that hitherto could follow the events only through the broadcasts
on television now have an opportunity to see their heroes live in action.
Since the event is followed by millions of fans worldwide over
television and has a readymade audience, media channels fight to secure sole
broadcast rights. Automobile industries compete to sponsor the event, to secure
their bit of fame. Likewise there are sports crazy industrialists in India who
have worked hard and long to popularise this sport in India. This event is also
likely to bring in revenue from foreign television channels. Tourist traffic is
scheduled to increase bringing in revenue for the tourism industry.

India. The design and construction has been monitored and approved by the

centre, a separate media enclosure and workshop facilities. The 5.14 km track has
16 circuit turns and is expected to be covered by race participants in a mere 1
minute and 27.02 seconds.
The circuit is also expected to have a seating capacity
of 1,18000 people. Thanks to the popularity of the sport, fans from all
over India and abroad will surely throng
to the event, and this can be an amazing opportunity if you’re planning on
having fun with likeminded people. The F1 event in India is to be hosted by the Force India formula F1
team. This team was established in 2007 by industrialist Vijay Mallya, who is
an ardent racing fan.

your hotel rooms in Delhi or Noida way in advance. The rock band Metallica and
pop diva Lady Gaga are expected to perform in the ceremony, and this is an
additional bonus for fans and tourists alike – the sound of ripping cars will
