New Delhi: Jaypee Sports International Limited (JPSI) has consecutively planned to be the promoters of the Indian Grand Prix and this time they have been announced as the “Best F1 Race Promoter” by the world body FIA.
At a glitzy awards gala in Istanbul on Friday, JPSI beat 19 circuits to defend the title it had won after last year’s stupendous success of the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.
Farhan Vohra, race operations in-charge at the Buddh Inernational Circuit, was recognised as Best Clerk of the Course, as per the report.
Sameer Gaur (Managing Director and CEO, JPSI) said that it was moment of pride for the organisers.
He said, “This is indeed a very proud moment and I am honoured to receive this FIA award for the second time on behalf of my entire team and the country, whose support and enthusiasm was responsible for us to win this award again. This award will motivate us to host a grandeur F1 Indian Grand Prix next year and we would hopefully be able to complete a hat-trick of the award.”
