Uttar Pradesh State government preparing for Indian GP

This year’s edition of the Indian Grand Prix will be supported by the state’s government to ensure that the event runs smoothly, recognising the impact that the event has on the international map.

Located in the Northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, the Buddh International Circuit will be assisted in traffic, transport, security, medical facilities and parking – for both fans and Formula 1 personnel – after a meeting of officials within the government last week.

Another meeting is scheduled early in October to assess the progress of the preparations.

The organisers of the Indian GP, meanwhile, slashed ticket prices from 15 to 25 percent for a limited period with the target to fill the near 100,000-capacity of the Buddh International Circuit.

“The aim is to sell the bulk of the tickets by October 15,” a Jaypee Sports International official told IANS adding that just over 25 percent of the tickets have been booked so far.
