something like this around delhi?


Race Track around Delhi-tsukuba.jpg

this is an image of the tsubuka racetrack and it looks challenging. you bet we need something like this.

I'd like to make mention of this racetrack I went to in US. it was actually a speedway called Talladega speedway. it is used for races only 5-6 times a year but the rest of the time, it is used by various other organizations who run racing schools and by privateers who come there to race their cars.

similar concept could do good here.
I actually love the concept nurburgring runs on.

ecks, good luck.

Default Sure fire great idea

I am sure this will be a fantastic success - do watch out for regulations, access to emergency medical care. You may also need to certify every member after a series of tests monitored by expert drivers. Else you will have every lead footed guy in North India sleeping at your doorstep and your parking lot will look like a 108 dispatch area.

By the looks of it, you seem to have enough money to pull it off - I think you should. Not just for all the money you will make but also for all the joy people will get thanks to you.
Get a bunch of professionals and go for it. Make sure people earn their memberships. You can tie in a school for performance driving. I had an idea for a long time and also thought through a few issues but just don't have vitamin M to see it through.

I will be more than happy if you consider Hyderabad as a more central India location :-) I will be your first applicant if its Hyd.

While we all dream of a full-fledged track, come let your hair down at India's only indoor GoKart track.... Kart Cave. With karts for a variety of ages and skill levels and equipped with a full timing system with driver analysis, it's hours of nonstop fun and improvement of your driving as you go along.

Just a word of caution. A very high level of driver discipline is expected here. So get ready to get thrown out if you don't follow the rules

@Noidaboy - We shall look into the legal aspect of that later. The purpose of the track would be to be a public venue for racing and we shall welcome race events organized by other institutions.
I hope this works out, because it will be a blessing for alot of us here in north atleast.

But if you are looking at a business prospective, do study upon the G.noida circuit because if that comes up,then you might have competetion, But if you are doing for your self then its different.

Why not a drag strip? Cheaper,easier, more participation.

Guys , last I read it is an F1 race track not open to the public. If it is, then I do not need to invest in the time and resources for a track. As far as I know, it is not.

Since I have a Tsukuba - like race track in mind, 200 acres is what we have estimated. A drag strip can be integrated into the same design.

sounds great.
but is it legal to buy a property, create a race track and touch speeds over lets say 250-300 kmph per hour? Or is there some license required?
BTW once your project is completed will you please buy a few exotics which people like me can rent for a weekend for track use? A 600bhp M3 sounds delicious.

So it'll just be empty whenever there isn't an official event going on? That's downright silly since trackdays are a good source of revenue for them and it keeps the track and facilities from falling into disrepair.

I am sure there must be some procedure involved. Will go in depth with the questions after my exams.

That was my first reaction too. Apparently the standards and requirements and track conditions for a formula 1 race are very high, as a result it won't be open to public for normal use. I may be wrong as that may have changed, but I too need more info on this.

What about street circuits that share space with public motorways/roads and such?

Aah , you mean like the monaco track eh? Its definitely a good option. Will look into all possibilities before deciding on what is best. What we North Indians need is a technical, curvy track with good straights so that supercars or performance cars at least stretch their legs to 4th or 5th gear. Tsukuba fits the bill very well.
