Indian GP circuit will be ready as per the original date

Published

on

June.06 – The Indian Grand Prix organisers claim track construction will be complete further on the time and the only cause the event was rearranged from October was to reinstate the Bahrain Grand Prix to the 2011 season. The FIA, decided last week to rearrange the Bahrain GP to the plan in the October time slot initially designated for the Indian GP, and to make the Indian race the season finale on a date to be decided in December.

Vicky Chandok, president of the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs in India, told The Associated Press on Monday that the rescheduling “has nothing to do the race track, which is getting ready well ahead of schedule.”

“If you ask me if it the track will be ready as per the original date, the answer is yes,” Chandok said in a telephone interview — Indian organisers are building the F1 circuit on the outskirts of the capital, New Delhi.

Arrangements for the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi last year were beset by construction delays which overshadowed the build up to the October event, but there have been no reports of serious delays with the F1 project to date.

Chandok said Bahrain organisers needed certain timeframes to stage their race.

“We spoke to our promoters, who said there was no problem. We are happy to make the adjustment to accommodate the Bahrain GP,” That’s just owing to the logistics like distance between South America and India and transporting the cars,” he said. “It has nothing to do with the race track.” Chandok said.
