History of Motor Racing
The need for speed takes us to the very dawn of the human race. The Paleolithic age, roughly 2.5 million years ago to 10000 BC is far larger than all of modern history. Early Humans lived in caves and small huts. Hunting and gathering were the means of survival. Being quick was often the deciding factor between life and death, whether it was running away from predators or hunting prey for the next meal. As we evolved in an attempt to quell our primal selves we turned to race, whether it was racing animals, chariots, or much later, motor vehicles.
The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile's top level of competition for open-wheel single-seater formula racing cars is called Formula 1. Since its first season in 1950, the World Drivers' Championship, which later changed its name to the FIA Formula One World Championship, has been one of the most prestigious racing series in the world. The name's use of the word "formula" alludes to the set of requirements that all participants' automobiles must meet. Grands Prix, a collection of events that make up a Formula One season, are held all over the world on both closed public roads and purpose-built racing tracks.
We at the IIA Navi Mumbai Centre are organizing an Inter-college competition for designing a motorsport track at Dapoli, Navi Mumbai.
Currently, there is only one Grade 1 circuit in India with multiple proposals across the country. So we at the IIA are trying to give a base for a similar project right here in Navi Mumbai!
Motorsport in India is seeing a sharp surge in popularity. In the past, India hosted a series of Formula One races at the Buddh International Circuit, Noida, but they were discontinued due to tax disputes and Motorsport not being recognized as a ‘Sport’in India. In 2013, that was the last major Motorsport event that took place. But this scenario is going to transform very soon! Formula E and Moto GP have announced India as a venue for races in 2023 and India will soon have its own feeder series of F4 and F3 which will give a systematic way for aspirants to get into the international scene of events. The aim of this competition is to design a Circuit where motorsport events can be carried out efficiently and effectively.
All the participants will be getting the certificate for participation. There will be three awards in total and the winners will get certificates and cash prizes also. The trophy will be a Rotating trophy that your college can yearn for every year.
