After F1 success, BIC to host FIA's GT1 World Championship
Buddh International Circuit would play host to FIA's GT1 World Championship, which is scheduled between Nov 30 and Dec 2, 2012. It would be the 10th race of the championship and the season's grand finale. Keen on spreading their tentacles far and wide, organisers seem to have chosen the circuit after it successfully hosted the F1 race.

PEOPLE FROM motorsport fraternity seem to have been impressed the way India hosted F1 race last year. After race drivers gave thumbs up to the Buddh International Circuit (BIC), major motorsport championships might be held at the venue. The latest entry FIA's GT1 World Championship, which is a sports car racing series, has decided to host one of their races at the circuit, which is scheduled from Nov 30 to Dec 2, which is also going to be the season grand finale, reported IANS.


One has to give credit to Hermann Tilke, who was primarily responsible for building such a quality track, which has also received international awards. So, BIC would be hosting the 10th race of the season in FIA GT1 World Championship Calendar, where fans would once again be eager to watch the mega spectacle. But before this, the BIC would be hosting the F1 race for the 2012 season, which is slated for October 28. It is a double treat for Indian fans in a span of just a month or so.


The organisers of the FIA's GT1 World Championship might have chosen BIC, since they are also very keen on spreading their racing series far and wide. India, being one of the fastest growing markets just adds a positive point for the race. They had been targeting south Asian countries and India seems to perfectly fit their bill too.


This is truly a great piece of news for India, as the circuit would not only be used for F1 but also for similar kind of world motor championships. It would not be a surprise if Moto GP and the World Rally Championship also decide to host one of their races on the circuit. This topic had come to the forefront last year too. BIC has the potential to be the next hottest destination in the motorsports industry.
