WorldFinals of Motorcycle Drag Racing held at South Georgia Motor Park, Valdosta, GA (USA).
India’s first ever representation at the World Finals of Motorcycle Drag Racing with Sonu Sundeep Singh Sokhi & Amit Sharma having made our country proud 🇮🇳. We salute the “Fastest Indians” for their commitment & dedication to the “World Fastest Sport”.
All odds were against the 2. They had never raced on a Drag Prepped Surface, had not been used to the Power of the machines & got only 2 days of training under Rickey Gadson Drag School. That’s a tough ask for anyone to perform with such seasoned racers. But they did it in style and beat the best in the World & earned their RESPECT on a #GlobalPlatform.
There were over 800+ Participants (2000+ entries) from across the Globe. Racers who have 20+ years of experience.
- Sundeep Singh Sokhi (Sonu) qualifies #3 out of 35 entries in “Street fighter Class“. Sonu earned his way to the final 8 bikes in a sea of seasoned racers.
- Amit Sharma becomes the “Fastest Indian Rider” in India’s drag racing history when he produced a 8.87sec time-slip. He earned his way to the Top 16 in a seasoned racers class of 64 entries.
Elite Octane’s initiative has opened a doorway for India Racers to perform at the highest level in the “World’s Fastest Sport – Drag Racing”. The initiate which start at India’s premiere Drag Racing event – The Valley Run 2017 saw Rickey Gadson’s attendance and also was host to the first ever Rickey Gadson Drag Racing School in India. The 2 Indian Racers were selected from this very group by the 11 Time World Champion. The journey from Valley Run (Aamby Valley City, India) to World Finals has been incredible & we certainly see a bright future ahead for Indian Racers with support from FMSCI.
