Honda is on the lookout for young racing talent.
What is it? Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have launched an initiative to identify young racing talent in the country. It’s the IDEMITSU Honda India Talent Hunt 2022, and it kicked off in Bengaluru.
- The first round saw amateur riders from Chennai, Coimbatore, Malappuram, Lucknow, and of course, Bengaluru. Riders in the age group of 9 to 17 participated. It started with a physical fitness session followed by seeing how well they could drive and manoeuvre around the track. Then came the one-on-one interview with the candidates and their parents or guardians.
Next steps: The shortlisted candidates will be trained to ride on the track. From this pool, Honda will decide who is the best of the lot. Finalists will get a chance to drive in the ongoing 2022 IDEMITSU Honda India Talent Cup CBR 150R category.
