We’ve brought motorsports within the reach of aspiring motorsport enthusiasts over the years and this year with Autocross over 1000 people have experienced the thrill of this crazy sport. As a leader in the automotive space, we believe motorsports completes our offerings to the customers. Through motorsports, we are encouraging racing in a technically competent and safe way, which also adheres to global standards. Autocross has served as a great platform for mushrooming motorsports enthusiasts to showcase their real talent while allowing them to drive cars with no or very little alterations.

For Autocross an enthusiast doesn’t really need to have a high end or a modified rally car brand. All they need is to have a car of any company, with or without modifications and most importantly the skill and willpower to perform on the track. The participants will drive over specially designed tracks. Autocross tests the drivers’ skills and vehicle handling rather than just the speed. The blend of tight and twisty turn in surface creates enthusiastic pumping experience for the motorsports enthusiast. Introduced in the year 2002, Autocross is the nation’s biggest small motorsports format where motorsport beginners are invited to test their skills and emerge as the winner of the coveted title.
