With the third Indian Grand Prix just a couple of weeks away, National Geographic Channel (NGC) in association with Jaypee Sports International Limited on Tuesday unveiled their one-hour special documentary titled `Buddh International Circuit: A Race Against Time`.
The documentary was launched at a special media screening held on Tuesday at the iconic racetrack. Present at the event were Sameer Gaur, MD & CEO, Jaypee Sports International Limited, Debarpita Banerjee, VP - Marketing, NGC Network and Fox International Channels, and India`s first Formula 1 driver Narain Karthikeyan.
"The Indian audience over the past decade has started widening their horizons of interest and have accepted Formula one racing as one of the most exciting sports. They want to know more, witness more and engage better with the sport. Nat Geo`s documentary will help fans better appreciate the massive efforts and resources put in creating one of the best racing circuits in the world,`" Karthikeyan said.
The documentary will be aired on October 25th at 8 pm on NGC.
