What an occasion, what a landmark, what a way to celebrate it, and what a spectacle it became! Most of you know that MotoGP is coming to India this year christened MotoGP Bharat and also, the race at Le Mans was the 1000th MotoGP race since the inception of the series in 1949. To celebrate that and to show everyone around the world that India’s love for motorcycling is second to none, Fairstreet Sports and xBhp convened a massive ride on the 13th of May, 2023.
The xBhp Community has always been at the forefront of everything motorcycling in India and the community that we have relied on for nearly two decades did not disappoint. The ride was a resounding success and the number of bikers that came in to show their support left us amazed. We’d like to thank everyone who joined us for this ride, a doff of the cap from us to all of you!
The French Grand Prix marked a significant achievement in the history of MotoGP since the first feast of speed was held 74 years ago. Close to a thousand motorsports enthusiasts and bike riders joined in numbers to pay tribute to the sport’s remarkable milestone. Riders gathered at the JLN Stadium to begin the rally and rode to Gurugram. The rally, hosted by Fairstreet Sports and convened by xBhp, is the first of many such events being organised in the build-up to the historic MotoGP India round — the MotoGP Bharat.
The Hon’ble Vice Chairman of New Delhi Municipal Council, Mr Satish Upadhyay graced the occasion along with the executive team of Fairstreet Sports and had a message for the bikers and the audience.
“It was a wonderful event today. I would like to congratulate the Fairstreet Sports team and wish them great success as they gear up for the upcoming Moto GP Bharat. MotoGP is a big name in the world and the way you have started here is fantastic. We have to encourage such events a lot more and I assure you we will do everything to help you in future as well. In India, Motorsport is often regarded as a stunt game but this is not a stunt, this is a serious sport and we have to take it seriously. Security and safety is also very important and it is necessary for bikers to adhere to the rules and do the racing,” commented Satish Upadhyay.
Pushkar Nath Srivastava, COO, Fairstreet Sports said: “We are thrilled to have organised the MotoGP milestone celebration with a bike rally event that brought together the passion, excitement, and unity of the motorcycle racing community in the capital city. As India gears up for the first-ever MotoGP Bharat, this was a remarkable experience to witness the joy on the faces of fans and riders alike. This rally not only celebrated the milestones of MotoGP’s history but also gave glimpses of the excitement of fans for the historic event later this year.”
