Trivandrum is on the Formula One map! No, we haven't gotten a race track yet, but Technopark-headquartered UST Global has put the city into the world's most high-tech and glamorous sport by becoming a partner of the Virgin Racing team.

With this, UST Global joins an elite list of global firms with a presence in F1, in which only a few Indian majors like the UB Group and TCS were members till this season. UST has put up a bill-board of their newest brand vehicle opposite the Technopark main gate and I hope that they bring the real deal down to Technopark to show off!
I was rejoicing over Schumi's return to F1 and now I have another reason to celebrate, Trivandrum has its own team! Let's all spare a cheer for Virgin Racing as well!!! Hip...Hip..Hurr- !
