The track that will host the inaugural Indian Grand Prix later this year has been officially named the Buddh International Circuit (BIC), organisers have announced. The 5.14-kilometre, Herman Tilke-designed venue will host its first F1 race on October 30.

The name has been chosen with reference to the area where the track is situated - Gautam Budh Nagar district, near Greater Noida, around 40 kilometres from New Delhi. The stylized ‘B’ of the circuit’s logo stands for ‘Buddh’ and for ‘Bharat'.

Organisers hope the BIC, currently under construction, will receive FIA approval in late July/early August.
