    Until now, India had three major tracks in Noida, Chennai, and Coimbatore that are primarily used for racing events. The new track has been opened near Indore in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. 

    India's federal Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Prakash Javdekar has launched the country's longest racetrack. The latter occurred on Tuesday via a virtual ceremony. 

    Divided into four lanes, the high-speed track -- NATRAX -- is 11.3 kilometres long and 16 metres wide. Besides this, it makes for the longest high-speed test track in Asia and the fifth-largest in the world.  

    Open to all sorts of commercial speed racing events as well, the track has been designed for vehicles accelerating to a maximum speed of up to 375 km per hour. 

    Federal Minister Javedkar has shared images of the track on Twitter.
