Indian Racing League: Hyderabad racer Anindith Reddy eager to race on home turf

Hyderabad racer Anindith Reddy is eager to demonstrate his driving prowess in front of his home fans when the inaugural edition of the Indian Racing League kicks off on Saturday at the Hyderabad Street Circuit on the banks of Hussain Sagar Lake.

Anindith will compete for the Hyderabad Blackbirds team, which will compete against teams from Goa, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Delhi. This league will also serve as a precursor to the Formula E race, which will be held in the city in February of next year.

The race is also significant because it is the only street circuit in the country. The Indian Racing League, a five-city based race, is the world’s first-of-its-kind event, and Hyderabad is hosting the race for the first time.

The 32-year-old racer is looking forward to the event. “It is fantastic that the motorsport is coming back to Hyderabad in a big way. This is definitely a step in the right direction. This being a street circuit makes it more exciting. I would like to see a full circuit built in Hyderabad,” he said.

“It is a first-of-its-kind format in the world. Especially for a country like India where racing is not popular, it is very important. The league involves fans, cities and everyone,” he was quoted as saying.

Anindith, who began racing professionally in 2013, won the Indian touring car race last year, and has also competed in the X1 racing league in 2019 and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series in 2018.

In 2017, he was the only racer to win both the MRF F1600 and the Euro JK17, earning him the Motorsport Person of the Year award. He has five championships, over 100 race starts, over 70 podiums, and over 25 victories.

“The journey has been fantastic so far. I have gone to a higher level with each year. My goal right now is to do well in this league as it is an important one. It gives us a chance to race against the best drivers in the world and see where we stand. I would like to go into GT car racing next. And also it would be nice to race at the Le Mans,” he said.

He also believed that hosting India’s first Formula E race in Hyderabad would encourage people to participate in the sport.  “Formula E racing coming to India, especially to Hyderabad, is a big boost. It definitely will have a big impact on the game in the country. It makes the sport more popular here,” he added.
