My first ride on a motorbike was at the age of 14 on a 125cc bike. As with many other teenagers in India, my passion for motor sports was embraced early in my teens. Though cricket is the nation’s religion, motorsport is catching up in popularity among young people. Events like Formula 1 (F1) and motocross rallies are keenly followed. There is a world class race circuit near New Delhi, Buddh International Circuit, where F1 races were held in 2011 and 2013. Indian drivers have also competed in F1 races.
