Maruti Suzuki is all set to introduce the first ever Indian National Autocross Championship 2016 in Bengaluru. This is a great opportunity for India's young talents to showcase their talent and to test their ability to the limit.
The automaker has organised the second round of the championship in Bengaluru on 12 and 13 November. The event is held in Bangalore International Exhibition Centre, Tumkur Road.
After the second round, the Autocross circus will move on to Hyderabad, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Jaipur and Chandigarh. The grand finale of the championship is held in Delhi-NCR.
Vinay Pant, Assistant Vice President (Marketing), said, "Maruti Suzuki has always championed the motorsports culture by introducing tough and gruelling rallies like Maruti Suzuki Raid De Himalaya, Maruti Suzuki Dakshin Dare, Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm etc. in the most challenging terrains.
"However, we observed a need to reach out to the masses who are yet to realise their aspirations of participating inaccessible, fun yet challenging motorsports contests."
He added, "We had first introduced Autocross in 2002 and then expanded to multiple cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru which was greatly appreciated by rally enthusiasts.
"The gradual next step was to expand the level of participation, thereby bringing the concept of the national championship to the forefront."
In this fantastic championship, the champions from south India will face the champions from north India for the national title. In addition to the battle of north vs south, the organisers also added an extra round at Mumbai.
