The Buddh International Circuit is a motor racing circuit in Greater Noida , near Delhi , in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India . It was planned by Hermann Tilke . The route length is 5.125 km. On October 30, 2011, the Formula 1 Grand Prix of India took place there for the first time . After the 2013 race, the route was removed from the calendar.
The slightly hilly route, modeled in the landscape, is referred to by some drivers as the “ascent and descent”. Since motorcycle races are also held in the Buddh International Circuit, the concreted track boundaries have a higher profile than pure racing car courses, which means an increased risk of contact for monoposto .
The course was renamed from Jaypee Group Circuit to Buddh International Circuit in April 2011 . The route was named after Buddha in order to set a sign of peace and inner calm.
