Catch up time!

Well, it has been quite some time since we've done a news round-up article due to other commitments, like university work, so here we go with a massive catch up! =)

Firstly, here is something interesting to look at. It's info about the 2011 India motorsport forum to be held in New Delhi on the 24th November. It should be an interesting event and will hopefully produce some talking points regarding development for India in this sector.

Next up, Indian actor and film director Gulshan Grover has stated his desire to create a movie on motorsport! We'll provide more information on that story when we get it but in an interview Grover stated: "I plan to rope in Shah Rukh Khan for the lead role. Things are still in the planning stage but we hope to start the project by the end of this year." Shah Rukh Khan is a self-confessed motorsport fan and he is an ambassador for Force India F1 so it seems like an ideal fit.

Want more? Okay well Force India have announced an extension of their contract with STL for a further three years. STL are a communications company who help the race team connect to the Force India factory, back in Silverstone, during a race weekend. Read more on this deal and STL's role within Force India here.

While on the subject of Force India we are still awaiting their 2012 driver line-up announcement. Rumors are circling that the decision has been made and an announcement will be made very soon!

Finally, India has a new racing series! We won't tell you too much about it just yet as we have a detailed article about the series coming next week; however feel free to take a look around their very flashy website here =)

That's all for now - thanks for reading! =)
