Jaypee Sports International Limited (JPSI) has been declared Best F1 Race Promoter, once again. This is for the second year running that JPSI has received this award which was bestowed at the 2012 Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Prize Giving Gala held in Istanbul, Turkey on Dec 7th. Mr Sameer Gaur, MD and CEO of the company received this trophy where he thanked his entire team in being instrumental in hosting second Formula One in the country at Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida.

At the awards ceremony, Mr Farhan Vohra received the ‘Best Clerk of the Course’ award for the year 2012. Vohra is in-charge of race operations at BIC and has played a proficient and capable role in managing race operations efficiently and controlling racing events well, during both the F1 Indian Grand Prix events in the past two years.

Gaur and his team were ecstatic about receiving this award for the second year in a row and are specially honored as JPSI beat 19 circuits to defend the title it won last year as well. They are now motivated to host the Indian Grand Prix next year when they hope to complete a hat trick of this prestigious award.
