    FMSCI outlines plan to resume motorsport in India

    Motorsport activities in India have understandably been put on pause, as the country continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdown. However, with sporting series around the world now starting to host events behind closed doors, the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI) – which is responsible for the governance and promotion of motorsport in the country – has announced a host of measures to encourage racing activity.

    Aimed to motivate the resumption of national championships as well as grassroots-level events, these new initiatives largely target event organisers and promoters. The new measures announced for 2020 include:

    India has currently entered the fourth phase of the nationwide lockdown but with a number of relaxations in place. The government has already announced that stadiums across the country can be opened, provided there are no spectators. However, no clarity has been provided on whether sporting events can yet be conducted without spectators.
