Gold Coast, Australia – An Australian government trade group is discussing the possibility of holding two V8 Supercar races in India next year, and including an Indian team and driver on the Australian-based circuit.

Austrade senior trade commissioner Peter Linford said today that talks were being held on entering the Indian team and driver in the 2012 championship, and organising back-to-back races in Chennai and at India’s new Formula 1 track outside New Delhi.

Linford, based in New Delhi, said: “The next phase is to get an equal commitment from the Indian side.”

The V8 series has held past races in the Middle East, including in Abu Dhabi in February.
