Pista Motor Raceway coming up near Hyderabad

The racetrack is named after the Ferrari 488 Pista.

Hyderabad-based entrepreneur Nishant Saboo is building a racetrack near Hyderabad. Construction on the Pista Motor Raceway will commence later this year and is expected to be completed by 2023.

The Pista Motor Raceway is located at Dundigal, Telangana. It’s about an hour’s drive from the Hyderabad airport. The track is named after the Ferrari 488 Pista, where Pista translates to racetrack in Italian.

The racetrack will be constructed in three phases. A drag strip will be constructed in the first phase. It will be ready by May-August 2021. In Phase 2, a 2.3 km circuit will be built, which will be completed by May 2022. In the next phase of construction, the existing circuit will be extended to 3.708 km. The third phase is expected to be completed by May 2023. The facility will also house an off-road track. A dirt track has already been constructed at the site.

When ready, the 3.708 km long track will have 16 corners, a 150 meter long pit lane, a 145 feet diameter steering pad and 50-100 meters of run-off.

While the Nanoli Speedway near Pune has received FIA approval, the Pista Motor Raceway is yet to get accredited by the motorsport’s governing body.
