    Default WSBK will make its Indian Debut in 2017: xBhp News

    World Superbike Championship (WSBK) is finally set to take place at the Buddh International Circuit in 2017.

    Sameer Gaur, Jaypee Sports International (JPSI) chief said:
    "We have signed the contract with WSBK for the race in 2017. We are contractually bound to host the race.
    Earlier the WSBK was supposed to take place in 2013, but it got cancelled due to operational changes. WSBK commercial rights holder Dorna Sports may not have to overcome the tax hurdles faced by F1 in India but there are some logistical challenges.

    Javier Alonso, WSBK executive director in 2013 said:
    India is the most complicated round on the calendar in terms of custom clearance".
    But a positive development has taken place since then and motorsport is now recognised by the government, therefore, getting customs and other clearances should be a less difficult task.

    On the other hand Formula1 is facing income tax issues and JPSI has already contracted to host two more F1 rounds which will happen only when existing income tax issues surrounding the event are sorted.

    Sameer Gaur also said:
    "As of now, we are only thinking about WSBK and F1 will return when the tax issue is settled. Apart from that, the usual domestic events will continue to take place. We have made such a huge facility, invested so much in it, obviously to have international races. And I am not only talking about F1, I am talking about other championships too. As a private developer, we understand that we need to do lots of events to keep the facility going."

    That's a great news. Let's hope WSBK does not face the same fate as F1!

    Oh, I was hoping next year. But it's the year after next. Long time. Any way, we can just wait. Hopefully it goes through easily and I don't know, but since motorsports is now considered a sport in India, do we get any relaxation it ticket charges?

    Now that you've said it, it shouldn't be as high as that of Formula 1 in previous years. However, I have an idea or rather a proposal for Sunny. How about a grand get together from all round the nation. If we can get bulk tickets for the event - all three days - FP, Superpole and Race. It s very soon to even thing about it, but I'm sure the idea is worth keeping in the parking lot till the time comes

    Let us hope the race happens and doesn't suffer the same fate it did earlier!!
    If we can get back F1 and WSBK, it could lead to greater things and we may be able to witness the legend, VR46, race !!!
