2011 Indian Grandprix Weekend

Less than two weeks before the inaugural Indian grand prix is scheduled to take place, disgruntled farmers are still threatening to disrupt it.

They are angry that their land was acquired compulsorily without adequate compensation to make way for the new Buddh circuit.

According to the Hindustan Times, they have written to a regional official this week reminding him that if their demands are not met, they will push ahead with protests aimed at disrupting formula one.

“There’s nothing alarming. There’s no threat to the race,” a senior official of race organisers Jaypee insisted.

“A lot rides on the event and the farmers are only trying to browbeat the organisers and the administration,” he added.

A regional official warned: “If any group tries to disrupt the proceedings of the race, we will deal with them in an appropriate manner.”

According to the Indian Express, some farmers are threatening to play cricket on the asphalt on the day of qualifying, and then step up the protest to “stop the race altogether” on Sunday.

“We want to hold a sports tournament, to show the world our grievance. We don’t want to cause trouble, but our voices must be heard,” a spokesman for the farmers’ group said.

Another farmer added: “We will try and stop the race at all costs as it represents the injustice that we have suffered.

“We have heard that the foreign (F1) cars will be arriving between October 18 and 20. We intend to stop them from entering the circuit.”

Stupid farmers spoiling everything. They are all the same all over the world. Over here in England they are responsible for the shitty wet cold weather. :argh:



This race is already a disaster and it hasn't even started yet. Typical Indians messing things up. :banghead:

Expect to see Corner shops erected in all 12 corners of the track. :hihi:


I predict all the drivers will suffer from explosive diarrhoea either before, during( ^o^ ) or after the race. :hihi:

Well apparently the drivers are still having to sign paperwork about going to this race and Kovalainen says he's never known anything like it.

Also it will be interesting to see if they can get the cars out again as easily as they get them in, apparently there are some concerns over their customs regulations. They still have not yet released some of the Commonwealth Games equipment from 2010!! :eek:

Haha...that is so very true in this area. You never know with the passage of time we might see people settling down in shanty colonies right next to the track surface. A 'bypass' track might need to be paved just like bypass highways. :)

Still, its a bit unfair that farmers have had their land taken from them without adequate compensation. In India, a farm is not just a business, its a way to feed your family.

Agreed. If they didn't pay them properly, it's just stealing really. And we are talking about really poor people too. :roll: :roll:
