2013 Airtel Indian Grand Prix trophy revealed: It is designed by same person who designed 2012 trophy
2013 Airtel Indian Grand Prix is just 6 days away. The first practice is scheduled to start on 25th October, Friday 10 AM at Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. Unarguably the biggest motorsport event in India, all preparations are heading in the right direction, and team cargo is just arriving at the Buddh International Circuit as you read, says President of the FMSCI, Vicky Chandhok.
Colours saffron, white and green are imbedded in the gaps between the slivers, depicting a subtle expression of the Indian flag. The final avatar uses a resilient ion-plating and anodising of aluminium to create a unique blend of metallic black, red and silver.
“The trophy is an interesting combination of sports, technology, glamour, entertainment and youth, and we wanted the trophy to reflect each of these elements. After a lot of design work, we finally arrived at a trophy that is a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional India,” said Foley.
