FIA to inspect Buddh International Circuit on September 1

Time flew by, leaving only 2.5 months for the Indian Grand Prix to happen, which is scheduled on October 28-30 in Buddh International Circuit, Noida. The inaugural Grand Prix has spawned a lot of nosiness among the Indian Formula One fans.

The track is still under construction, with works like the pit building, team building, grandstands and temporary spectator stands due to be completed by September second week. As the track has reached its final stage of completion, The International Automobile Federation (FIA) will give it the once-over on September 1.

The organizer, Jaypee Sports International (JPSI), claims the work will be completed by second week of September, keeping in mind the pace of work going on now. FIA’s race director Charlie Whiting will have to clear the 5.14 km track of Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.

Earlier this year, track inspection was supposed to be held on first week of August. But now the FIA, JPSI and the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI) have fixed it to be done in September.

According to some sources, the FIA team will first visit the Korean circuit and then come to India as the Korean GP is scheduled to start two weeks prior to Indian GP. Also, it is said by an FMSCI official that there is nothing to panic about the track being kept unfinished.
