India joins the FIA Motorsport Games for the first time.
India joins the FIA Motorsport Games for the first time. Renowned driver, 2013 Asia-Pacific Rally Champion Sanjay Takale will race under our nation’s flag at the iconic Circuit Paul Ricard in Marseille, France. Mr. Takale will contest the highly competitive Rally4 in a Peugeot 208.
“This will be the first time I am going to represent India, which makes this opportunity very
special” Sanjay Takale said addressing a media conference ahead of his departure for France.
Taking place between 26-30 October 2022, more than 80 nations are expected to compete for gold, silver and bronze medals under the colors of their country’s flag. They will race in a vastly expanded programme of 17 disciplines spanning the motorsport spectrum,
Having won the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship in the past and already represented his
country on the international stage, Sanjay Takale has teamed up with aerpace-a futuristic
drone-based logistic transportation system. Founded in 2019 by young visionaries from Mumbai, aerpace shares his vision to inspire the world to move through cities in smarter, fast and more sustainable ways.
The two-wheel-drive Rally4 discipline will be staged on the tarmac roads of Sainte-Baume.
“I gave it a thought as to whom should I take as a navigator, but finally settled on the New Zealand-born, now Australia-based Mike Young” Sanjay Takale informed. He drove mos the APRC rallies and other cross country rally events with Musa Sheriff as navigator. But thi time he preferred Mike over Musa because the Australian has himself driven on different international circuits. Young is himself an established rally driver. Also the two were in the sa position-Sanjay Takale as driver and Mike Young as navigator-with the two finishing sever in Rally Estonia in Tallinn in 2019. Interestingly Young was Mr. Takale’s teammate in the APF championship driving for the Japanese rally team Cusco Motorsport.
