Sur­prise F1 Merger

India Today - - GLOSSARY -

Sachin Ten­dulkar hap­pily waved the che­quered flag as Se­bas­tian Vet­tel whizzed past the fin­ish line at the Buddh In­ter­na­tional Cir­cuit in Greater Noida on Oc­to­ber 31. Now rac­ing fans have the new In­dia Rac­ing League to look for­ward to. Brain­child of Mach­dar Mo­tor Sports Com­pany CEO M. Dar­shan, the league will have eight teams from In­dia’s largest cities with two cars each form­ing a 16-mem­ber grid. The usual sus­pects from the busi­ness and glam­our worlds are al­ready mak­ing a dash for their share of the pie: Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Na­gar­juna, with Ten­dulkar hav­ing bought a 26 per cent share with An­jana Reddy, di­rec­tor of Mach­dar Mo­tor Sports.
