The newly constructed track that will host India's inaugural Formula 1 race will carry the name Buddh International Circuit. The title was confirmed during a launch event in India today at which the track's logo was unveiled.
"The name 'Buddh International Circuit' has been chosen with reference to the area where the racetrack is situated – Gautam Budh Nagar district (near Greater Noida). Because of its location, naming the circuit 'Buddh International Circuit' was a logical choice for the company," said a statement from the organizers.
The 3.194-mile, 16-turn track will hold its first grand prix on Oct. 30 this year.
