Formula 1 – Grand Prix in India in 2009 – Can They Pull It Off ?

Rumours about Indian GP have been circulating for months or years. It’s been for so long that one looses track of it. The places changed, venues changed. It looked recently that all settled on street race in New Delhi. According to the news that broke out yesterday, New Delhi it is, or will it be ? There has been a change of mind (if there ever was any mind) and now we are talking about new purposedly built track, not a street circuit. So Mr. Tilke will have to make another trip and make a new survey. This track will likely be built somewhere outside of the city. Some roads or streets or trains would be nice if fans are to get to the new track. And all of this we are made to believe will be ready by 2009.
Don’t take me wrong, I think that to bring the race to India is great idea. Formula 1 has huge following there, can’t even compare it with China. Just check the ESPNSTAR website and their Fantasy League and see where most of the fans come from. But will they be able to build the track and all the necessary infrastructure on time for 2009 season? I have my doubts but I wish they pull it off.
