This race has been delayed until 2011 but they've finally got round to revealing the design of the circuit holding the race, the Jaypee Group Circuit in Greater Noida.

Image

Here is the full plan of the area.

Designed by Hermann Tilke of course. What do you think?

The circuit looks interesting, lots of slow corners with the fast corners hidden. One of the corners (furtherest to the left) looks like Turn 8 at Istanbul. I'll reserve judgement until a race is run though.

Track looks interesting indeed. Not what we used to think about Tilkedromes... But to be honest, I don't think we'll see much action on this track.

That would be pure weirdness (and pure insanity at the same time).

As long as it's not around a marina. Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Valencia (and soon to be South Jeolla) have ruined the unique nature of Monaco of being sea side

A dawn race in India would start in the early hours of the morning European time, meaning less TV viewers, and Bernie wants more, not less, TV viewers. But I can see an inaugural middle-of-the-night GP though (that would be primetime Saturday night- good for viewers).
