K Rajini became the first Indian rider to win an international motorcycle race by winning the LARRS class of the Qatar International Road Racing.

Running as a part of the Qatar International Road Racing Chamopionship, a total of 37 bikes participated in the race that was run concurrently across two categories - Superbike and LARRS with majority of the grid made up of superbikes with names like Anthony West and Bradely Smith in contention.

Rajini emerged on top of the LARRS category in both races. He finished a credible seventh overall in race 1 while Deepak finished second and tenth respectively. In race 2, Rajini was eighth overall but still in command of the LARRS class while Deepak was second behind him, having finished 11th overall.
