Three new race tracks are set to come in the country and will be built in Hosur (Tamil Nadu), Hyderabad and between Mumbai and Pune. Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI) President confirmed that they were in talks with parties from these three places. However, he did not disclose further details.
“I can’t disclose details at the moment because they are in talks with us and it has to be confidential right now,” he told Motorsport.com. “We are aware that they are interested in putting up tracks in these areas. Till they announce it, we will not be disclosing details. But for sure, we are in discussion with people from these three areas. Once they have firmed up everything and start work, I am sure they will also announce it,” he added. He further said that it is private corporate investment and it has nothing to do with the government. This will certainly be a much needed boost for Motorsports.
Currently, India has three major tracks viz. Buddh International Circuit (FIA Grade 1) in Greater Noida, Madras Motor Race Track (FIA Grade 2) in Sriperumbudur and the Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore. These apart, there are international level karting tracks in Bangalore and Hyderabad. The others are mostly recreational karting tracks or those that can host National Championships.
