Indian GP organisers named best promoter
10 December 2012 – Jaypee Sports International Limited (JPSI), organisers of the Indian Grand Prix, have claimed the 'Best F1 Race Promoter' award for the second year in a row. Presented at the FIA Prize Giving Gala, the company fended off 19 rivals from the 2012 campaign.
"This is indeed a very proud moment and I am honoured to receive this FIA award for the second time on behalf of my entire team and the country, whose support and enthusiasm was responsible for us to win this award again," said JPSI Managing Director and CEO Sameer Gaur at the ceremony.
"This award will motivate us to host a grandeur Indian Grand Prix next year and we would hopefully be able to complete a hat-trick of it."
Farhan Vohra, head of race operations at the Buddh International Circuit, was also named 'Best Clerk of the Course' for the 2012 season by the sport's governing body.
