Doni Tata :
India round was pretty difficult race for me. I had fallen in first free practice session, lucky not injured. At first race I was optimistic and able reach the podium position. Unfortunately one of the Australian rider Michael E. Jones had an accident. So that the red flag should be hoisted. If race wasn't stopped I believe i could achieve a podium position at the time.
Aaron Morris :
This my first time race in Madras Circuit, at the same time also my first podium in ARRC series. Circuit conditions make a level of challenge for me especially are not too wide. We have to change the suspension set up repeatedly, until i felt the bike comfortable into the corner. I'm glad our hard work was successful and ended on the podium.
