Here's my recreation of the former F1 track at India near the capital of New Delhi. As many other new circuits it was designed by F1 chief architect Hermann Tilke and opened in 2011. Unfortunately the F1 circus left after the 2013 race mostly for bureaucratic reasons.
The track combines long high-speed straights with tight hairpins and flowing sections. There are some noticeable changes in elevation, especially at some corners.
Turn 1 is a quite tight 90° right leading to a long uphill lefthander. The radi of T 3 is extremely tight (19 R) so it's rather tricky to hit the apex which isn't unimportant for the following main straight. That is more than 1.150 m long and provides slipstream battles and hard braking overtakes before the next corner. Another medium length straight leads to the flowing section of the track which has been well-received by the F1 drivers proving a challenge to drive consistently on the limit.
While T 5 is rather easy you can fly off easily at T 6 if you're too fast and miss the turn-in point. Turn 8 and 9 is a fast chicane and leads to the super long T 10 /11. That turn provides high corner exit speeds down to T 13. Turn 14 is a tight kink where only some throttle lift should be necessary. Via T 15 and another short straight you reach the last uphill hairpin T 16.
The track is well suited for cars > 500 PP though race cars should provide most fun.
Enjoy racing Buddh International Circuit.
