Been to the Indian Grand Prix and were left wondering what driving at the fast, flowing Buddh International Circuit feels like? Well, wonder no more, as the BIC will be thrown open to the general public on March 10 for an open track day.
BIC to host open track day
The cost is quite reasonable considering the track and the facilities available - Rs. 3000 for motorcycles for a one-hour session, and Rs. 4000 for the same track time in a car. On average, this works out to around 18-20 laps of the 5.14-kilometre layout, provided you don't take too many breaks.
Once you're done hammering around the track in your own car or bike, you can go for hot laps with certified drivers - two hot laps in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will set you back by Rs. 7500, while a single lap in a Mercedes C-, E- or ML-class will cost you Rs. 1500.
Apart from this, a host of other activities like powered paragliding, karting and slalom are also planned.
