Formula 1 in India

After months of speculations,it has been confirmed a few days ago that the Formula 1 race is going to have its chapter in India this October from 28th-31st October.
More than the excitement of getting to see the cars zooming at those crazy speed,I feel proud that India will now be among a handful countries to have an F1 track. It makes me feel proud of the emerging India and it is one of the testimonies of India having arrived on the world stage just as Terminal 3 of the Delhi Airport is, which supposedly outshines most of the airports of even developed countries as per the feedback I have heard from some people who have traveled abroad quite a bit .Currently, it's the eight largest airport in the world with an aesthetic appeal which I think only a few airports would be able to match. Whenever I go there, I feel incredibly optimistic about India's future.

I have already booked the ticket for the race. In fact,I rejected my parents proposal to schedule a vacation during that time as it is holiday period. This debut F1 race is going to be a momentous occasion for India and I wanna be a part of it! Metallica is going to be there so that's another reason for me not to miss the event. Zooming off!

Thanks Mannu-Bhai.
I feel sad to miss the first-ever Indian Grand Prix.
Just heard from a friend at Jaypee group that the ‘Jaypee Greens Sports City’ will be an awesome place in another next few years when complete construction work will be taken place.

Just a correction to your post: Delhi Airport is not eight largest airport in the world. Its Terminal-3 is eight largest (as per floor-area) among all Airport-terminals.

But I will try to attend at Suzuka race-track for Japan Grand prix.
@ Mann,
You're lucky to get this opportunity! Have fun at the race and take pics!

@ Chiru,
Long time no see and hear! Hope all is going well.
