Mallya's delight at India's inclusion on 2011 calendar

Vijay Mallya has welcomed the FIA World Motorsport Councils decision to include a Grand Prix in India as part of the 2011 Formula One World Championship. Subject to completion of the track, the race would take place at the end of October in Noida, 20 kilometres southeast of New Delhi.

"As team principal of India's very first F1 team - Force India - and in my capacity as chairman of the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India and a member of the FIA World Motor Sports Council, this is a dream come true.  As an Indian, I feel proud and walk tall amongst the world's motor sports community. There are a maximum of 20 F1 Grand Prix races worldwide each year and it is a matter of pride that India is on the list."

"I would like to record my appreciation for the bold initiative taken by the Jaypee Group in establishing a greenfield F1 race track at Noida, from the regular reports I have received, construction is in full progress and the track with considerable supporting infrastructure will be ready well in time for the 2011 event."

"India's economic growth, young and aspirational demographic and the growing popularity of F1 in the country make it one of the most attractive future destinations for a high technology-driven and fantastically competitive sport like F1 where both man and machine are tested to the absolute limit," he added.
