Plans for a second F1 track in India are racing ahead. Last year, it emerged that – entirely separate to the Delhi project that this weekend will host India’s inaugural grand prix – Mumbai’s state Maharashtra government is also considering building a track.
It was announced on Monday that a consortium involving the designers of London’s 2012 Olympic stadium and the new layout at Silverstone have won the contract.
“The venue will be designed and constructed to meet the highest level of grand prix standards,” said Capita Symonds, Populous and Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System in a statement.
They have been appointed to prepare “the master plan and business case for a new multipurpose race circuit”.
