India is all set to rock with parties and after parties.

Over 150 food joints, parking facility for 16,000 cars, a helipad, two-medical facilities and a media centre may sound like a mini-city, but these are just some of the facilities to cater to an expected 100,000 spectators at the inaugural Indian grand prix at Noida's swanky new Buddh International formula one circuit, reports IANS.
