August 24, 2022

Formula Regional Indian Championship and Formula 4 Indian Championship team Mumbai Falcons has been announced as an Official Partner of the 2022 FIA Karting World Championship. Mumbai Falcons will  partner during the events at Le Mans, France and Sarno, Italy. 

Mumbai Falcons has already announced its plans to create a world-class racing and karting facility in India. Founded in 2019, the team is a part of Racing Promotion Private Limited, organiser of the upcoming Formula Regional Indian Championship and Formula 4 Indian Championship events, both of which will be launched towards the end of 2022. Both events are FIA certified, and with these two championships, the region hopes to eventually bring back the highest level of motor racing. 

Akbar Ebrahim, President, FIA Karting Commission, stated:

Guided by the new Presidential team at the FIA, one of the missions is to double motorsport participation and cultivate awareness and engagement in under-developed and developing territories. It is my goal as President of the FIA Karting Commission to harness the passion and enthusiasm among youngsters and guide them on the pathway to a career in motorsport with karting as the first step on that journey. 

The collaboration with Mumbai Falcons Racing Limited is central to that mission, particularly in a country like India, where the capacity for growth is enormous. We are seeking to provide cost-effective entry points and offer training, operational and technical support in order to expand the FIA Karting footprint globally in alignment with the FIA’s over-arching commitment to expansion.

Moid Tungekar, CEO, Mumbai Falcons Racing Limited, commented:

We are delighted to have the opportunity of partnering with the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile  for the 2022 and 2023 FIA World Karting Championship. Karting is the first essential step when entering into motorsport and is responsible for teaching drivers and teams race craft.

We at MFRL are focusing on developing international standard infrastructure and providing world class facilities to facilitate the growth of motorsport within our nation. The Gadhoke Group founder, Ameet Gadhoke, has an ambitious vision to create a world champion Indian driver in the near future and to make India a destination for motorsport developmental activities. We thank the FIA for their trust, support, guidance and look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.”
