The Madras Motor
Sports Club track
in Irungattukottai
is being redesigned to make it a viable option
to host a MotoGP race in the future,
confirmed Amit Arora, the general
manager of MMSC operations. The track would be upgraded from
its current Grade-4 status to a
Grade-2 status which will make it the
country's second most advanced
track once the F1 track at Noida
opens up. MMSC is already in talks with MotoGP
promoters, Dorna and racing circuit
designers Apex, from UK. The sports
club is getting vital information to
design a racetrack suited for MotoGP
and Formula 2 races. Racers have been asking for several
improvements to be made to the 21
year old circuit for a long time and it
seems they will now be getting more
than they hoped for in a time as short
as 3 years. MMSC will also be making efforts to make sure there is minimum
interference with the day-to-day
activities of the circuit during this
time. “The plan is to create a multi-use
venue for motorsport, alongside an
entertainment area. It will have
shopping malls, hotels and
restaurants. There will be new
paddock buildings and garages. The length of the main straight will be
increased and corners will be worked
to improve speed.” Arora added. Meanwhile, the construction of the
Greater Noida Formula 1 racetrack is
progressing at a reasonable pace and
the track should be able to host its
first Grand Prix at the end of this year.
A second, smaller racetrack for Go- Kart racing is also being constructed
alongside. With Indians Narain
Karthikeyan and Karun Chandhok
getting their hands on a F1 steering
this year, looks like motor racing in
India has finally come to life Smiley
