For the second year in succession, organisers of the Indian Grand Prix were recognised by motorsport’s governing body as the ‘Best F1 Race Promoter’ for the 2012 season at the FIA prize giving gala in Istanbul, Turkey earlier this month.
The Buddh International Circuit, developed by the Jaypee Sports International Limited (JPSI), in Greater Noida has now hosted two Formula 1 races, with the inaugural event held only last year.
“This is indeed a very proud moment and I am honoured to receive this FIA award for the second time on behalf of my entire team and the country, whose support and enthusiasm was responsible for us to win this award again,” said Sameer Gaur, the managing director and CEO of JPSI.
“This award will motivate us to host a grandeur Indian Grand Prix next year and we would hopefully be able to complete a hat-trick of the award,” he added.
