    VW Ameo Cup receives National Championship status from FMSCI

    The Volkswagen Ameo Cup has been conferred with National Championship status by the Federation of Motorsport Clubs of India (FMSCI). As a result, the one-make series will now run as the ‘Ameo Class’ as part of the 2019 season of the MMSC FMSCI Indian National Championship.

    The format will continue unchanged with participants competing in 10 races over the course of four race weekends. However, the series’ new National Champion status means the results will carry more weight than ever before, with winners of the Pro and Junior categories set to be officially recognised as National Champions of the Ameo Class from this year.

    “We are happy that the FMSCI has recognised the racing series we have been running over the years as a class of the National Racing Championship from this season onwards. We have put in a lot of effort over the years in building up a racing property that is truly of international standards and the recognition of being a National Championship encourages us further to take this to the next level,” said Sirish Vissa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India.

    “This is a positive step for us as a manufacturer, and the championship, as the winner will be officially crowned a National Champion by FMSCI. This will, in turn, help our drivers in growing further in their racing careers,” he added.

    This year’s Ameo Class will kick off on June 22 at the Kari Motor Speedway. The second and third rounds will be held at the Madras Motor Race Track, while the fourth and final round will be held at the Buddh International Circuit.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
