 “It has been our endeavor at NGC to entertain as well as inform, through our key franchises. In some, we showcase some of the best mega-structures of the world, taking the viewers, not just into the splendor but also the challenges of putting together such a mammoth project. The Buddh International Circuitstands as a symbol of one of the most awe inspiring Indian infrastructure projects in recent history,” said NGC Network and Fox International Channels VP – marketing Debarpita Banerjee.

“Against the backdrop of the upcoming Formula 1 season, documenting the resurrection of this world class racetrack has been a privilege for us. In sync with our brand philosophy 'Unlock', here is yet another special that will open up a lot of aspects about a subject India is getting increasingly passionate about. The Buddh International Circuit: A Race Against Time documentary in association with Jaypee Sports, allows us to showcase the making of India's first ever formula 1 racetrack. And it has been one thrilling ride,” she added.
