India’s captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s love and passion for fast and furious Super-bikes has inspired him to launch an FIM Superbike Championship team at a grand event in Mumbai on Wednesday.
The name of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s racing team has changed from MSD R-N Racing Team India to Mahi Racing Team India. The team has roped in world champion biker Kenan Sofouglu from Turkey and former world champion Fabien Foret from France.
The Mahi Racing Team India will soon start preparing for the World Superbike Championship to be held in India in March 2013.
Dhoni’s better half Sakshi Dhoni was also present at the launch. Indian batting sensation and vice-captain Virat Kohli was also there. Stars form the Indian film industry like Nagarjuna, Tabu were also spotted.
MSD’s close friend and Bollywood star John Abraham, who is also a passionate super-biker, was not able to make it to Wednesday's event owing to prior commitments. Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is supposed to officially unveil his bike racing team in a glittering event to be held in Mumbai. John Abraham too is expected to be there at that event to make it a grand success.
