Motorsport like many other forms of sports in India does not receive much recognition. The Indian Government had gone out and even called racing a form of entertainment and not a sport.
Indian Government has now decided to recognise motorsport as a form of sport. This surely is good news for racing enthusiasts in the country.
Formula One had organised two races in India, however, due to heavy taxes has opted to stay away. Back then the Federation of Motor Sports Club of India was not recognised by National Sport Federation.
Organising a Formula One race in the country is a matter of prestige for several nations. It was sad to know that Indian Government previously did not recognise motorsport and was done with Formula One championship.
Several countries receive help from their Government, when it comes to organising such extravagant sports. Motorsport is not cheap and involves a lot of money and infrastructure.
This means that Formula One and several international race activities could be coming to India soon. Good days are ahead for every motorsport enthusiast in the country.
