Motorsport fans across India can rejoice. As many as six racing events will take place at the Buddh International Circuit(BIC) as part of the SIDVIN Festival of Speed this coming weekend.

The weekend will see the JK Tyre National Racing Championship that consists of the Volkswagen Polo Cup’s final round, LGB Swift Formula 4, Indian Touring Cars, and Indian Junior Touring Cars championships. JK Tyres' rival in the tyre market MRF will also be present and the track will also witness the MRF Challenge series, which has 18 Renault-powered Dallara racing single seaters. All within the same weekend, a first for India.

And if all that action isn’t enough, then well-known Indian racers like Karun Chandhok, Narain Karthikeyan, Aditya Patel and Armaan Ebrahim among other prominent racers are all set to race against each other in Audi R8’s at the track in the Race of Champions 2012 over the weekend. The best news though is that entry for the event is free through invitation passes that are available free of cost at JK Tyre, MRF and Audi outlets across Delhi/NCRS.

Will you be there to witness all the action, TopGear.commers?
