Both the Buddh International circuit in Greater Noida and the Madras motor sports track in Chennai are ready to welcome speed enthusiasts in their confines over the next few weeks. While India's only Formula 1 track has already started hosting track days, the MMRT has opened its doors for testing as well as track days.
The 5.14 km long racing marvel which has hosted 3 Formula 1 races in the past, shared on online update in which it said,"We are back on track.. with action packed pedal to the metal. Let the lights go green".
In a social media post, the Chennai club said, "The MMSC welcomes back all manufacturers, corporates & participants to it's race/test track & thank you all in advance for respecting protocols in the #RaceAgainstCovid" The club informed that the track will be opened on June 14th 2020 for testing.
