Marque One racetrack in AP to be India's longest

The 5.5 km track will be longer than the Buddh International Circuit (BIC).

Marque One Motor Club plans to build India's longest racetrack in Andhra Pradesh.

Located a few hours drive from the Bangalore airport, the initial plan was to build a 3.2 km racetrack and aim for an FIA Grade 3 certification. It has now been reported that the circuit will be extended to 5.5 km, making it longer than the Buddh International Circuit (5.125 km).

The racetrack will feature a 1.1 km main straight that will double as a drag strip. The track will follow the natural contours of the terrain and will have significant elevation changes. The site will also feature an off-road track, skid pan and kick plate that can be used by OEMs for development purposes.

Anush Chakravarthi, Director, Marque One Motor Club, has revealed that they are aiming for an FIA Grade 2 certification and a Grade B license from the FIM (International Motorcycling Federation). The plan is to host international events including F2 races.

Club members will get access to the clubhouse, vehicle storage unit, track-side accommodation and priority access to events.

The Marque One racetrack was supposed to open next year. However, it will now take an additional 4-5 months to complete the construction.
