Indian GP will return: Race promoter Sameer Gaur

budd-2013-3-886x590Many reports claims that this being India’s final F1 Grand Prix and the sport not come-back in 2015. But Indian GP race promoter Sameer Gaur guarantee and bet his life that the race will return in 2015.

When the media ask about future of Indian GP, Gaur was all-promise. “I’ve already bet my life on motorsport so I am willing to bet my life on the fact that the race will return,”

“Who from Jaypee said that the race would not be held? In 2011, everybody thought that the track will not be ready. We have shown India that we can make it happen. We made it happen in 2011. Why should we have any doubt that 2015 will not happen? I really don’t know where the speculation is coming from. This speculation, from the paddock, is very baseless.”

Gaur was talking like a man who was either supremely confident or in denial. “Lots of rumours are doing the rounds but as of now we are not perturbed at all. We have a firm contract of five years — extendable to 10. We have missed 2014 but I am pretty sure we are on for 2015.”

“I am not disappointed (by the government’s stance) at all but having said that I feel the tourism department should do more.If I was part of the tourism department I would have said ‘I will join Jaypee and make it all a package deal’. That’s when motorsport will develop. We cannot make it happen individually. The price involved in attending the track is very high but if people get a package a lot of people will come in, and that in turn will benefit everyone.”
