2011 Grand Prix India: Details of Formula 1 Racing Track at Noida



Yet another masterpiece by the legendary track designer Hermann Tilke is getting ready for its solo race next year 32 Km outside the national capital.

The Formula 1 track in Greater Noida is designed to be 5.1 Km long and contains 16 corners. The cars are expected to lap at an average speed of 210 kmph around. The track is one of the fastest in the world, with the cars reaching 320 kmph in the main straight before braking into turn 4.

The designers have taken inputs from the teams’ simulator test runs for refining their track layout and have put the data into good use by modifying turn turn 7 and turn 3  to increase overtaking opportunities.

The  state of the art curved roof grand stand, located near turn 10 and 11, has a capacity of 30,000 people bringing the total capacity of the track to a staggering 1,20,000.

With Karun coming into F1 and an Indian team – Force India F1 showing some great racing on the track, organizers feel that filling up the seats wont’ be a major task for them.

Track boss Mark Hughes said “Karun’s presence on the F1 grid has certainly whipped up a lot of interest in India. The feedback from the teams has also been very encouraging and we hope the race will speak for itself.”

    building a track is alright but does anyone know the logistical nightmare a fi grandprix is…. first of all you need holding facelities at the airport for the landing equipment like truck trailers etc. which teams travel with…not to mention the proximity of airport to the track you need a 4 lane highway for those trucks to reach the track . morover the requirement of 5 star hotels in the proximity of track to accomodate teams and inportant guests.being an artchitect i can see some shortcomings in the loction itself.there is no direct access from the highway and parking areas are not ample .moreover area behind the pits is not sufficient for the motor homes and equipment trucks for all the teams .i can go on.. i am an indian and i support the cause but doing somthing like this one needs a coagulated effort from govt. , sports authorities, loads of sponsers, and a management agency which can collaborate all the efforts.for commonwealth games delhi govt. is falling drastically short, you think an f1 race which is comparable to olympic games in terms of logistcs you feel that few enterprenuers can accomplish.,.,im not entirely sure.
