Grand Prix of Bharat: While talks have been on to get MotoGP to India for the past decade or so. The event is finally hitting the ground now. The world’s biggest AUTOMOBILE companies – Yamaha, Honda, Ducati, KTM, and Aprilia participates in the RACE.

The races are likely to be held on the Formula 1 track at Greater Noida which also had the privilege to host the F1 races from 2011 to 2013.  Details about the event would be formally announced today by Carlos Ezpeleta, MD of Dorna and Carmelo Ezpeleta, the CEO of the company.

Dorna is the worldwide owner of the commercial rights for MotoGP.

The races now will have Noida-based race promoters Fairstreet Sports (FSS) in mix. The master agreement between MotoGP commercial rights owner Dorna and Fairstreet Sports has already been signed. The FIM homologation of the track will be done now.

Speaking to PTI, Fairstreet Sports COO Pushkar Nath said they have done their homework for the organisation of the high-profile race. The promoters claim that they have taken into consideration what went wrong with Formula 1 nine years ago.

 

“India is the largest two-wheeler market in the world. Everyone has a connect with bikes. It has aspirational value. MotoGP is one of the most watched sporting events,” Nath told PTI.

“We have taken all the precautionary steps for the India round. We ave taken all the steps to ensure we can race in India for a long period. We are looking at a winter round for India next year.” Akbar Ebrahim, president of Indian motorsports federation FMSCI, welcomed the development.

“I had mentioned in our AGM recently that talks were on between both the parties and we have been kept in the loop. I have also had a meeting with the race promoters. They know what they are doing and what is needed to pull off an event of this scale.” said Ebrahim.

Around 5000 people work on a MotoGP weekend which incudes races in junior classes Moto 2 and Moto 3. The race will not only put Uttar Pradesh on the global map but is also expected to boost tourism.

Nath said the race is not possible without the support of government and he is thankful to both the state and centre for their help.

“It is like hosting the Commonwealth Games with 5000 people working on the race itself. The BJP government both at state and centre have been really helpful.

“They also want to boost tourism in India. People will be coming from Europe and other parts of the world and it would be shown live in 200 countries,” said Nath.

Fairstreet Sports will be paying millions of dollars to Dorna for the race every year. It wasn’t sustainable for the Jaypee Group when it hosted Formula 1 but Nath said his company has factored in the huge costs involved.

“Not just readying the race track, the biggest challenge will be to create the infrastructure for the race,” he said.

Besides taxation, custom clearance emerged as a big issue during the Formula 1 days. The concerned stakeholders can’t afford to go wrong on this front again.

Former FMSCI president Vicky Chandhok, who was at the helm when Formula 1 came to India, said seamless entry of the equipment is a must for the success of the event.

“The arrival of the equipment has to be seamless. If that happens, the word will spread that India has changed and it has become feasible to organise races here, then it could also lead to return of Formula 1. It is a massive market at the end of the day. NASCAR too may come in.

“We have already hosted the Asian Road Racing Championship in the past. So MotoGP has to be the next step,” he added.

The all-electric Formula E race is also coming to Hyderabad next February and if MotoGP can go ahead as planned, Indian motorsport will finally get what it’s desperately waiting for.
