2nd October 2016 – Jaipur – the 4th round of the MRF MOGRIP FMSCI National
Supercross Championship 2016 was held here earlier today at Mansarovar. This event
was held in Jaipur after a gap of 4 years. The Supercross event witnessed 110 entries from
riders across the whole nation. This event proved to be one of the most demanding events
for riders this season due to the sandy nature of the track which comes with the territory.
The track was very demanding and had a combination of 1 tabletops and 10 double jumps
and corners. The weather was also ruthless with very high temperatures and the setup
tested the riders and machines thoroughly. Due to the focus that MRF, FMSCI and
GODSPEED Racing have invested into the growth of this sport in India there has been a
surge in participation and spectatorship in this National event. This event in Jaipur was
organised by GODSPEED Racing headed by Shyam Kothari in association with Action
Sports, Jaipur headed by ex SX Champion Kunal Singh
Owning the top spot on the podium for the 1st time this year in the Class 1 – SX1 which is
the biggest race of the day was Yash Pawar (# 5) representing LORRAINES RACING’.
Local boy Jas David of Jaipur did not disappoint the Jaipur crowds who were in excess of
5K people who made a come back to this championship after a gap of 3 years showing
some phenomenal racing skills and absolutely setting the track ablaze with a win each in
the Locals & Novice classes.
The SX 2 class for ‘privateers’ on foreign machines was a cracker of the race with a hard
fought battle between Vishal , Suhail, Adnaan and Rugved and it went down to the wire in
both motos keeping the crowds on their feet and it was Vishal Barguje a privateer from
Pune who took home the spoils. It was unfortunate for Rugved who was looking in good
nick that he was out with a collarbone injury.
A special mention to the JR SX with all the participants under the age of 15 years and
some as little as 7 years old. These children were the real heroes and even received a
standing ovation as they took a victory lap around the track. Dominating this race was
Yuvraj Kondedeshmukh who rode 2 flawless motos-winning overall in the class.
The Hon’ Cabinet Minister for UDH & Civil bodies; Shri. Rajpal Singh Shekhawat was the
