INDIA SPEED WEEK UNVEILED
Former 250cc and WSBK champion, Max Biaggi has joined hands with Mahindra Racing to operate a factory-supported team in the Italian CIV championship as well as selected races in FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship. “The Mahindra Group is focussed on helping people rise to realise their dreams and that is also Max’s focus with his new role as a team manager and Mahindra Racing ambassador”, said Mahindra Racing’s CEO Mufaddal Choonia. Quarter-mile racing makes its way to eastern India with the launch of India Speed Week in Kolkata. Scheduled to be held from December 9-12, the drag meet will be the centre of attraction for the motoring festival which would also have adventure sports as well as auto exhibitions taking place around the air-strip of Behala Flying Club. The event was inaugurated by former Indian football captain and local hero Baichung Bhutia. Celebs like John Abraham, a speed freak himself, will be present to flag-off the race weekend.
