One of India’s leading two-wheeler manufacturers, TVS Motor Company has extended its support towards young racecar driver Arjun Maini. The company has signed a long-term contract with the 18-year old. Maini races in the GP3 category and has created history in his second appearance at the event by grabbing a podium finish in Budapest, Hungary. He only made his debut this season in the GP3 category, starting with Silverstone earlier this month.


“I am happy and delighted to partner with TVS Motor Company. This association reflects the growing attention that motorsports is receiving in India. I have had a good start to the GP3 season and the support from TVS will encourage me to do better. TVS Racing, with its rich racing heritage, has been working towards cultivating interest and enthusiasm for motorsports in the country. TVS Racing has been a pioneer and the first factory racing team in India. I look forward to exciting times ahead.” Maini commented, on his newly formed association.

Like every other racer, Maini too started his motorsport career with karting back in 2006. Still, he has climbed the ladder pretty quickly, winning his first race in September 2007 and going on to win the MRF MAII Rotax Mini Max National Champion in the same year. However, his car racing career started only in 2013, in which he performed exceptionally well with laudable successes in the Asia Cup Series and JK Racing India Series. He was also able to mark his presence in the BRDC Formula 4 championship by finishing second in 2014.

Aniruddha Haldar, vice president – marketing, TVS Motor Company said, “TVS Motors has long promoted motorsports in India. As TVS Racing, we are India’s oldest 2 wheeler factory racing team. We believe India is under-represented in the International motorsports arena. Last year we were the first Indian manufacturer ever in the Dakar Rally. In keeping with that spirit, we are supporting Arjun, who we believe will be an Indian star in International Motorsports. GP3 is the beginning we are happy to be associated with Arjun Maini for the long haul. We expect to leverage this association across the TVS Motors footprint in over 50 countries.”
