2nd leg kicked off today with practice with cautious riders trying to get their sjills to triumph over unseasonal rains resulting in a wet track, and resultant ruts being formed.
Harith Noah of Team Aranha Racing says the track looks in good condition but overall conditions will make it a competitive race for riders. Nashik track was dry and relatively easy. Ganesh Lokhande of Team Bhalla Royale says it will be difficult to accelerate and timing the jumps will be crucial. Surviving the race will triumph over speed. Teams are key to garner max points from Round 2. After Round 1, Team Bhalla Royale clinched top honors with 153 points at Kute Supercross track.
Ganesh Lokhnade of Team Bhalla Royale will be keen on maintaining his leadership position (40 points) in MX2 category. Eeshan Lokhande, former international rider and Event Director & Partner, Vilo Events says the track will be challenging. While such conditions are normal globally, and riders usually adapt to such conditions with ease, in India such conditions are not normal.
Speaking on the last leg, Shivam Dave, CEO & Partner, Vilo Events said, “This leg is going to be full of surprises. With the current weather conditions you never know who is going to come out at the top. It could be an absolute game changer for the teams. Completing the races and keeping the points coming in, is going to be key for the teams.
Prabhakar Tiwari, General Manager Marketing, Ceat India says response to Ceat Pune Invitational Supercross League 2014 has been tremendous. Round 1 at Nashik was a grand success, and such a platform gives Ceat an opportunity to connect with bikers and motorsport fans in India.
