The Landmark Moment Of Indian GP Will Have Bahrain Crew

Indian Grand Prix

Chennai, Feb 08: There is no doubt at all that the Indian Grand Prix will be the landmark moment for the motorsports in the nation. Even hosting the event of this magnitude will be a nightmare logically. To ensure that the race goes off without any errors, the Federation of India Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI) has tied up with the organisers of the Bahrain GP to recruit the race marshals from the gulf country to manage the race in Greater Noida in October. “We have tied up with the Bahrain Motor Federation and 110 experienced marshals will be on duty during the Indian GP,” said the FMSCI president Vicky Chandhok.

“In addition to that we will have 230 Indian marshals to support the Bahrain crew,” added Vicky. The marshals are responsible for many works such as working in the pit lane, providing fire cover, working trackside and clearing debris from the track or in parc ferme. One of the most crucial roles is that of flag marshals. When the glitzy Yas Marina hosted the inaugural Abu Dhabi GP in 2009 they brought up 350 marshals from Britain. But however Chandhok is not interested going on that route. “Abu Dhabi had marshals all of them from Great Britain but we feel we need local marshals too,” he said. “This year we are getting marshals from Bahrain and as Indian marshals will gain experience from them we will reduce the number to 60 in 2012. By 2013 surely we will have completely Indian crew.”

A team of Indian marshals will go to Bahrain to get some training done. “The main objective over here is to make Indian marshals learn about how to manage the race from the Bahrain crew as they will be in action while hosting the GP2 Asia race. They will again fly to same place when Bahrain will stage the season’s F1 opener in March.”

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
