FMSCI president Chandhok wants to improve motorsports infrastruct


Bangalore- Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India’s (FMSCI) newly- elected president Vicky Chandhok Wednesday said he would try to improve the infrastructure for motorsport in the country.

“There is a lot of work to be done to improve the infrastructure of the sport in the country. I have always been pushing for the sport to grow at the grassroot level before all else. We have had our team doing just that with Rallying, Motocross and Go-Karting respectively and we will look to carry this into all segments from the next year on,” said Chandhok, who was elected president at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held here Tuesday.

Chandhok, who was president earlier during 2003-05, took over from Khushroo Madan while Shrikant Karani was elected vice-president.

“With the first Indian Grand Prix also in the mix, 2011 promises to be India’s biggest year thus far in motorsport and I look forward to carrying my vision on karting, racing, rallying and grass root level motorsport and meeting global standards in India.”

FMSCI Chairman Vijay Mallya, who chaired the AGM, said: “The Auto Industry in India is on the move as is our country and we are seeing a complete transformation largely driven by young Indians. Indian Motorsport should not be left behind and we should do whatever it takes our sport forward in the fast lane.

“With the F1 GP coming to India for the first time as well as the FIA General Assembly and the FIA Annual Awards ceremony to be held in New Delhi next December, it is an ideal opportunity for us to tap and showcase motorsports to attract more Corporates and sponsors.”

The following clubs were elected to the council for the forthcoming year: Madras Motor Sports Club, Coimbatore Auto Sports Club, Karnataka Motor Sports Club, Sportscraft (Mumbai), Sportstrek (Pune), Bengal Motor Sports Club, Himalayan Motor Sports Association and Spitfire Motorsports Pvt Ltd (Coimbatore).
