Andhra Pradesh Set To Host F1H2O India Grand Prix

F1H2O World Championship is all set to create a new benchmark in Amaravati in its sixth round. The global sporting event is making a grand comeback to India after a long gap of 14 years. The racing extravaganza will be held on the banks of River Krishna from November 17 – 18, 2018.


Marco Pietrini, Director of Logistics is working closely to set up the teams and is extremely happy with the progress of the state in hosting the gala event, “I am delighted to be here in India and receive the great hospitality from the people of Amaravati. The state of Andhra Pradesh has made arrangements to put up a grand and gala show for all spectators and visitors and I am confident this initiative will take the sport to greater heights in the years to come. I won’t be surprised if India has its own team competing on the global arena in the coming years.”


APTA will also set up viewing galleries near Punnami Ghat and will close the Prakasam Barrage during the two-day event. On 16th November, the powerboats will have a free practise session. On 17th November, teams will be battling for pole position while on Sunday afternoon Grand Prix India will start after another free practise session and a spectacular parade tour.


Mr. Himanshu Shukla, CEO, Andhra Pradesh Tourism Authority said, “We are happy to invite you to witness the spectacular event that will change the way grand sporting events are held in the country. All eyes will be on Amaravati and we are proud to put our country on the global sporting map with the F1H2O grand prix. Elaborate planning is being done in terms of hospitality and logistics, to welcome spectators and race enthusiasts from across the country and the globe. AP Tourism has been applauded for all the initiatives taken so far and we intend to create solid resonance for Amaravati with F1H2O”
