The F1 India Story

The Formula One trend is beginning to catch up in India. It all started with Narayan Karthikeyan who made his way to the F1 circuit, and was later fuelled by introducing F1 to India with the Buddh International F1 racing circuit. F1 India - Buddh International circuit is the lone circuit for Indian racing, making Delhi paradise for every hardcore motorsports fan. The first edition of the Indian Grand Prix attracted a lot of celebrities as well as corporate honchos. F1 India turned out to be a highly successful event and now is attracting more and more crowd. The Buddh International circuit, designed by renowned F1 circuit designer Herman Tilke, is 5.141 kilometres (3.19 miles). The race length of the first edition of the Indian Grand Prix was 308.4 km (191.6 mi) . The track is spread across an area of 875 acres.

Apart from the Indian Grand Prix, the Buddh International circuit will host other events such as GT1 world championship season finale in 2012, a superbike world championship for four whole seasons post 2013, and the 2013 MotoGP Indian Grand Prix.

The F1 India track has a total of 16 largely medium speed corners allowing F1 cars to lap at a whopping average speed of 210 km/h(131 mi/h). This will let F1 cars reach 320 km/h (200 mi/h) making the track one of the fastest tracks in the world. The first edition of the Indian Grand Prix was sponsored by Airtel, while the iconic Sachin Tendulkar waved the checkered flag to signal the victory of Sebastian Vettel.

Sebastian Vettel, the winner of the first Indian Grand Prix said "I think it is a very impressive country, very different to what we probably know from Europe, but very inspiring. If you keep you eyes and ears open I think you are able to learn a lot, the way the people handle things.

55 corporate boxes, with 30 seats each are currently present at the Buddh International circuit and have catered to huge names such as the Ambanis, Vijay Mallya etc. The corporate boxes for F1 India fill faster than the normal seats. It offers exclusive suites with an impressive private outdoor deck which gives you a brilliant view of the track. The corporate boxes offer individual suites with high ceilings that offer an astonishing view of the circuit through expansive windows and if glass is not really your thing, watch the action from impressive sheltered and elevated outdoor viewing decks.

Pay More Attention to Your Weaker Event When You Are Training For Triathlete

As a matter of fact, if a bike is fitting for you, you even can borrow a friend's bike instead. You could even ride a mountain bike or hybrid bike if you prefer. You will need a bike helmet so make sure that fits well. And do not make a rookie mistake like I did once by leaving it in the car before the race starts. You will not be allowed to leave the transition area after the swim to start the bike course without a helmet. Depending on the size of the race it will begin with a mass swim start.

A quantity of larger ones will disruption up the swim set up into smaller waves based on age assemble. From time to time you'll be permissible to walk or hurry into the water and other times you'll start previously in the water. If you are not good at swimming, you should start at the back of the group to avoid the original disorder at the start. Occasionally if you not sidestep the first commotion at the start, you may get inadvertently kicked or pushed or even have your goggles knocked off. When you come out of the water you'll be entering into the transition area where your bike and run equipment is stored for what's commonly referred to as T1.

After you towel off your feet you slip on your bike shoes, if you have clip less pedals on your bike otherwise, you'll just put on your running shoes if you have regular style pedals. Take a moment to eat part of an energy bar or eat an energy gel and drink a bit of your favorite sports drink. Take your time on the bike course so you can enjoy your first triathlon. On the bike you can also drink more. If you feel tired, you can try to take some sips every 20 minutes to keep up your hydration level. When you finish the bike ride, you will be arranged to come back to the transition area, which is known as T2. You should pay more attention to rack your bike properly, as if you fall off the rack, you will be penalized.

If you are wearing cycling shoes take them off with care to maintain your balance and not fall over as your legs will be tired. Sometimes you can find that some people even just site on the ground to give their legs a momentary rest. Put your run shoes on, take another energy gel, and a few more sips of an energy drink before you head out of the transition area on to the run course. Take it easy on the run course and maintain the same pace you did in training. In this way, you can finish the training comfortably and not experience any problems during the run leg. But during a sprint triathlon, there are more than one place where you can have a drink. One technique to drinking while running is to pinch the top of the closed on one side to help minimize splashing otherwise just walk while you drink your water.
