News sweep up!

Lots of things to share with you guys so we're gonna try pool everything into one article.

First off we start with Karun Chandhok. It has been announced that he will take part in the Amber Lounge Fashion Show at the Singapore Grand Prix. It's just a bit of fun and most teams have their reserve driver taking part for promotional purposes ... I'm sure Karun would much rather be on the track though!

Next up ESPN have quoted Adrian Sutil's manager Manfred Zimmermann saying: "our first choice for 2012 is Force India". Good news for Force India fans, it's always a great sign for the team when drivers are fighting over race seats - it means the car must be good! Force India say they will announce their 2012 lineup in December.

Staying with Force India, the finals of the OFAB (one from a billion) academy have taken place in Goa and from the thousands that entered just ten drivers remain. These drivers will now travel to Silverstone with Force India to see which of them have a real talent and which could be the next Indian motorsport star. One of the drivers we have been following, Parth Ghorpade, has made it into that top ten and was one of the quickest in Goa.

During those finals Force India deputy team principle Robert Fernley and driver Nico Hulkenberg travelled out to Goa to show their support for the scheme. Below is a picture tweeted by Nico of him with the drivers that made it into the last 26.

Those lucky 26 drivers got to drive around the Goa track in a two seater kart with Nico at the wheel, that must have been a fantastic experience!

Finally, one of the unofficial twitter accounts of the Indian GP has uploaded some great latest pictures of the Indian GP track! You can view them here.
