Consecutive 2nd win thrills Mahi Racing’s co-owners
Nagarjuna and Nandish were in Spain, cheering the two riders, when Fabien Foret took the chequered flag for Mahi Racing, co-owned by Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Foret recorded the fastest lap of 2'02.743 in the 18-lap race. It was Foret's 16th win of his career and the 2002 WSS Champion has now become the new leader in the current World Championship.
"We are absolutely thrilled with our team's victory today. During the qualification round we knew that our riders were all set to recreate the Philip Island magic in Spain and they did not disappoint us," said Nagarjuna and Nandish.
"It was a fantastic race and we are super excited and hope our fans in India will share our excitement," Nagarjuna added.
In February, the defending and three-time World Supersport Champion Kenan Sofuoglu gave Mahi Racing Team India the first win of the season and set the new lap record in 1'33.283 in Phillip Island, Australia.
Supported by Kawasaki as its factory team, with technical direction in the hands of Andrew Stone, the Mahi Racing Team will be moving on the next race at Assen in Netherlands on 28th April 2013, with supreme confidence.
The Indian round will be held at the Buddh International Circuit in November this year.
