Chandhok said: “With constant interaction from members nationwide, sporting commission members and members of the Council, motorsport in India is certainly on its continuous upward trend.”

The FIM sanctioned $50,000 to improve the riding skills of Indian SX/ MX riders, said the release.

The following clubs were elected to the Council for the forthcoming year: MMSC (Madras Motor Sports Club), CASC (Coimbatore Auto Sports Club), KMSC (Karnataka Motor Sports Club), Sportstrek (Pune), MSCC (Motorsports Club of Chikmaglur), HMSA (Himalayan Motor Sports Association), Spitfire Motorsports Pvt Ltd (Coimbatore) and WISA (Western India Sports Association).
