The Gixxer Cup 2017

Suzuki Motorcycle launched the Gixxer Cup in 2015 with much fan following and through the last 2 seasons, it evolved into a brilliant platform for the budding racers in India and a spectacular racing championship. In addition to laying the foundations for Suzuki’s global racing heritage in India, the Suzuki Gixxer Cup has brought class leading motorcycle racing infrastructure to the local talent at a fractional cost. Apart from showcasing the real potential of the Gixxer SF, this championship will double up as a rider development program for the up and coming local racers by giving them an affordable platform for valuable racing experience and exposure to the dynamic sport of motorcycle racing.
For the third year of the Gixxer Cup, Suzuki are determined to raise the bar yet again, and our new formed partnership with JK Tyre Motorsport to organise the championship shall not disappoint.
We look forward to another exciting 4 rounds of racing at the Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore and Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida; and would love to have you join us on this rollercoaster!

Mizoram: Aizawl’s Lalhruaizela books ticket to Spain in National Racing Championship 2017! FB Share

Aizawl’s Young Lalhruaizela books his ticket to Spain in Round 3 of 20th JK Tyre FMSCI National Racing Championship 2017

Anindith storms into the lead in Euro JK 17 class

Mizoram’s Lalhruaizela virtually grabbed the ticket to the Road to MotoGP in Spain by finishing second in Round 3 of the 20th JK Tyre FMSCI National Racing Championship 2017 here on Saturday.

The 15-year-old biker collected the maximum possible 10 points on Day 1 of the weekend to take his tally to 48 points, a full 12 points more than his stalemate Lalnunsanga.

The blue riband event of the championship, the Euro JK 17, was meanwhile flung open with defending champion Anindith Reddy storming to the top of the table.

Starting a solitary point behind Vishnu Prasad, Hyderabad’s Anindith showed his speed and class to amass 15 points. He took full advantage of the reverse grid in Race 2, as he began on Pole 2, to win the race and the maximum possible 10 points.

He was penalised by 10 seconds for a false start but that didn’t affect him, as he had won the race by a clear 15 seconds. In the first race too, he suffered the same fate (for overtaking during a yellow flag) to slip from his second-place finish to fifth. It still fetched him 5 points and the advantage in the day’s last race.

Chennai’s Vishnu, on the other hand, had a disastrous run: he failed to finish in both the races and returned with no points. That allowed Mumbai’s Nayan Chatterjee to creep up by turning in third in Race 1. He, however, couldn’t finish Race 2 that hurt his chances to further move up the ladder.

In the Suzuki Gixxer Cup, Chennai’s Joseph Mathew continued his winning run, notching up his fifth straight victory. He is sitting on 50 points now, with the rest of the field nowhere near him.

The LGB Formula 4 proved to be the highlight of the day, with some great overtakings, some fierce defending and even the safety car coming out twice. Kolhapur’s Chittesh Mandody (Avalanche Racing) regained the upper hand winning the race in a spectacular way. Tied with Prasad (MSport) at 42 at the start of the day, Mandody absorbed tremendous pressure to ward off the pack behind him

Prasad pushed him all the way till the end but just couldn’t get past him. He settled for the third position and a useful 6 points to stay in the hunt. Dark Don Racing’s Rohit Khanna crashed into the party for the second position but with just 20 points he has a lot of catching up to do in the remaining three races.
