TVS Racing’s K.Y. Ahamed from Chennai was declared the rider champion in the premier Pro-Stock 301-400cc category of the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship (INMRC) 2020.
The result was withheld on Sunday due to a protest questioning the legality of a part (radiator) used in Ahamed’s motorcycle. The Race Direction, following the scrutiny of the vehicle, turned down the protest, declaring the part (radiator) legal and that the modification was in line with prescribed technical regulations.
Ahamed finished with a tally of 121 points in the championship, five ahead of Bengaluru’s Anish Damodar Shetty (Race Concepts).
