Mr. Sirish Vissa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India said, “The Ameo Cup 2018 – Round One was an exciting round for us and the drivers.

Round 2 presents a chance for Affan, Saurav and Jeet to close the gap at the top.”
Mr. Vissa further added, “Round 2 is going to be an exciting battle with multiple contenders eyeing podium finishes. The weather and track conditions at MMRT are going to be quite different when compared to Kari. Moreover, for all the new drivers, it is going to be a whole new circuit as they haven’t got any testing time there yet.”
