Fuji PitlaneThe Indian newspaper Hindustan Times claims that Formula One bosses have signed a deal with a company to build a circuit near the national capital New Delhi. The group, JP Associates, is therefore now contracted to develop the site at Greater Noida, about 50 kilometres to the east of the capital for an inaugural Indian Grand Prix in 2010, a senior company executive suggested.

It was reported in September that promoter Suresh Kalmadi met with Bernie Ecclestone in London and ‘finalised’ a deal for 2010 and 9 subsequent years. The news followed the visit to Delhi of F1 circuit architect Hermann Tilke, who selected sites around Delhi for the promoter to choose between.
