The prices of the upcoming Indian GP at the Buddh International Circuit have been revealed. The grand stand tickets are priced at an insane Rs. 30,000/- whereas other seats are priced at Rs. 5000/-. The prices include all three days including practice, qualifying and race. With the organisers having pumped in Rs. 1800 crore in the project, it is but natural they would want a faster break even. The race is going to be quite exciting with the track having a total of 15 turns. The straight between turn 3 and 4, and turn 16 and 1 will allow for overtaking with drivers enabling KERS and DRS. The 5.137km track will have 60 lap race, which will be quite similar in time to the Malaysian grand prix.
