India's top race car drivers Armaan Ebrahim and Aditya Patel have collaborated with the Xtreme 1 Racing League (also called the X1 Racing League), and the event will be featured in India starting October 2016.
The X1 Racing League will feature custom built two seater cars, and will offer a mix of street and track circuits. The racing league will include eight 'city based' franchises, each comprising of two cars and four drivers.
The 45 minute races will be held over weekends and the event will feature three races a day. While track based races will be held at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) and the Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT), street circuits are still to be finalized and announced.
The X1 Racing League is backed and sanctioned by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI). The FMSCI is the governing body for motor sport in the country. The League has signed a long term exclusive commercial rights partnership with FMSCI, and this includes sponsorship, advertising, broadcasting, franchising, intellectual property, and new league rights.
The X1 Racing League is currently in talks with race car drivers from Formula 1, Le Mans, Formula E, the Indy 500, and NASCAR. The set up is such that each team will comprise of one international male drive, one international female driver, one Indian international driver, and one domestic Indian driver.
In a first-of-its-kinda format, the Xtreme 1 Racing League will allow female race car drivers to race along with male race car drivers. The move is meant to promote gender equality and gender neutrality in sports, and also to promote women empowerment.
The League also aims to discover, groom and nurture India's next racing champion. This platform will allow for national champions, pros, and rookies to learn advanced driving skill from some of the best race car drivers in the world.
We have no other information or developments to let you know about right now, but rest assured we'd be monitoring the X1 Racing League closely, and intend to give you all the news, highlights and information that comes our way.
