If only there was one less zero, thanks for the update though.

But what about the spectators? Any entry fee for being the audience there?

Come on, its a price of grand stand seats for to watch the F1, Here you get ot drive, Aquring the track for a day takes 7 digits, You need to only pay 5 digits for it. It is expensive but then what other choice do we have right now. Its about the experience

WOW..For enthusiasts in the area, it is a dream come true. For us down south in BLR, it is a very long haul!

It is expensive, but it is a F1 worthy track that is long - so you are likely to have a lot of open track [unless they cram a lot of drivers] without having to worry about getting stuffed at every corner.

Open track days can turn into squid-fests. I have been at a couple, and decided to just sit out an entire afternoon having seen bikes go down left, right and center. So, I think the price is justified if it is organized well with "quality" instruction.

Just a data point - Reputable track schools like ClassRides, or Star cost around 400USD per day. Open track days used to be as cheap as 175USD. Open track days are pretty good for experienced riders who are looking for a lot of track time. But for beginners, it is a no no.

I would have loved to do track days [on a bike] @ BIC - [although I not a fan of Tilke-domes]

For those who attend the session please share your experience - and have a fun filled and safe track day.

Krishna

It must be going to one Heck of an Experience for all those who are participating.

Yes the cost is bit on the Higher side.
But when again will you get a chance to Drive Your Own Car on an F1 track.

I wish i stayed in Delhi and was above 18.
All those participating please put up some pictures and share your experience.

Manan and Sanyam,which cars are you all taking?
