But it's still impractical!

1. Compulsory training session in Delhi early in September.
2. Volunteer as a marshall during race week late in October.

So that's 2 trips to Delhi (at one's own expense), about 9-12 days of leave from work/college/business, and all this at such short notice! IMMC, suit yourself! X(

Thanks for this update skjlives, I was waiting for this since long at last there is some update about next training. Somehow I get a feeling that there will be some goofups.Hope I am wrong.

Charlie Whiting and company will be landing in Delhi today. The inspection of the track will start from tomorrow. Hope things will be ok and track will be homologated. Awaiting for the proud moment.

Fingers crossed.

Cheers!

Arrow Final revision of the 2012 Formula 1 calendar!

Five-week break on revised 2012 calendar

Source : Five-week break on revised 2012 calendar

The FIA has confirmed the final revision of the 2012 Formula 1 calendar which has also been ratified by the WMSC. The major change sees Bahrain swap with India. The latter had been scheduled in at the start of the year following on from the Chinese GP, but it will instead follow on from Korea.

Bahrain has moved back to the front of the calendar as the final race before a three-week break which will see the return of in-season testing at Mugello, prior to the Spanish GP in Barcelona.

Another alteration, sure to make fans shudder, will be a five-week break between Hungary and Belgium, which sees an entire month, August, without a race.

Toward the end of the season, Japan and Korea will be back to back races, as will the United States GP and the season ending Brazilian GP which sees the season end on November 25th.

The revision also confirms the loss of the Turkish GP.

18/03 AUS Australia
25/03 MYS Malaysia
15/04 CHN China
22/04 BAH Bahrain
13/05 ESP Spain
27/05 MCO Monaco
10/06 CAN Canada
24/06 EUR Europe
08/07 GBR Great Britain
22/07 DEU Germany
29/07 HUN Hungary
02/09 BEL Belgium
09/09 ITA Italy
23/09 SGP Singapore
07/10 JPN Japan
14/10 KOR Korea
28/10 IND India
04/11 ARE Abu Dhabi
18/11 USA United States
25/11 BRA Brazil

Well, at least now we can breathe easy and hope that we host a good event without any hiccups. Hard efforts have been made to ensure that we get the go ahead and looks like its paying off now.

The small detail in that news is that the track is still not homogolated as it was originally planned to by this month. Now they are saying the track will be homogolated one week before the race

Not that it would matter in the end, just wanted to mention anyway.

Default Re: Updates on the Indian F1 track (Buddh International Circuit)

Is this like a special deal for the F1 Grand Prix, or will Scorpios be used as permanent track vehicles for all motorsports to held at the Buddh International Circuit???

You will need a lot of other vehicles too to help the track function, like ambulances, track cars, scooters to help movement of organisers and a lot more.

With the bomb blasts in Delhi, i hope there this does not make an impact on the GP, I guess now security will be even more tighter and track is still not been homogolated as it was originally planned to by this month. I hope things get better.

Sad incident. I don't think it will have an impact but Police force will be under tremendous pressure given F1 will attract international dignitaries and media personnel
