The Buddh International Circuit at Greater Noida, designed by German engineer and racer Hermann Tilke and the latest to join the Formula One calendar, is set to host one of the fastest races of motorsports’ premier class, with an average race speed of close to 210km per hour.
Unveiled 10 days before the Indian Grand Prix weekend begins, the circuit is a continuation of Tilke’s designs at the other racetracks across Asia—Turkey, Abu Dhabi, Malaysia, China, South Korea—long, fast straights going into sharp turns, with a series of long, winding curves. But added to these are changes in elevation across the track, which should make the inaugural Indian race a fast and exciting one.
