Mahi Racing Team India off to a cracker of a start
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is an avid motorcycle buff and has launched Mahi Racing Team India for the World super sport championship. If the testing is anything to go by, Mahi racing is looking solid with riders Kenan Sofuoglu and Fabien Foret and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. With the first race of the season just round the corner, Kenan and Fabien have set some rather exciting times.
Kenan Sofuoglu posted the second fastest time in the final day of the testing with the fastest lap of 1'33.384 which was well under the existing lap record at Philip Island, a promising sign for the reigning world champion Kenan and team Mahi racing. I am happy with this test because we have a new team and every time we are out, we improve the bike and improve the team. I am happy with the team said Kenan Sofuoglu.
His team mate, Fabien Foret was the third fastest of the thirty five riders who tested on the Philip Island race circuit. Later on in the tests, he found some pretty strong set up on his bike and he made good use of it. We are two and three on the time sheets for our new team and I feel not so bad on the bike now. The race is on Sunday and I think we have a good pace to start the race weekend with.
Mahi will add to its existing title sponsorship of the official Kawasaki Supersport World Championship team by sponsoring the official Kawasaki Racing Team in Superbike at the first round of the year.
Mahi Racing Team India looks in a solid state and if that is any indication of the things to come, the first Indian team in the World Super Sport Championship might just be on its way for a race win and more!
