Indian motor sports gets govt recognition at last

The Indian government finally recognised motor sports as a sport by including governing body FMSCI in the list of sports ministry-backed National Sports Federations (NSF). The development comes at a rather quiet period for Indian motorsports and at a time when efforts are being made to bring Formula 1 back to the country after the Grand Prix was dropped owing to tax and bureaucratic hurdles. The ministry has included motor sports in its latest revision of sports disciplines, albeit in the ‘Others’ category, meaning no financial assistance will be provided to the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI).
