Noida plays home to the Buddh International Circuit, which was one of the race tracks for the world acclaimed racing sport, ‘Formula 1’. It was inaugurated in 2011 and hosted the very first race that very year. Due to site maintenance and being unable to cope up with the tax demands of the Government the race course is currently suspended which is why the Buddh International circuit is not included in the 2016 Formula one race calendar.
