Greater Noida: What do you do with a fancy, expensive F1 race track after three days of racing are over? You start a race-car driving academy of course.
And that is what Jaypee Sports International Ltd (JPSI), which has developed what is officially called the Buddh International Circuit, plans to do at India's first Formula One (F1) race track in Greater Noida once the inaugural race is over. The race will be held from October 28 to October 30 and the company clearly hopes to cash in on all the craze for more speed and burning rubber that it is expected to generate.
So the company plans that come January, motor sports enthusiasts will have a choice of two courses -- the "emotional" and the "basic" programmes -- starting with how to drive a sports car and then on to imparting more skills after which successful drivers will get a certificate.
