  • | Friday | 22nd September, 2023

Noida: It will be a dream come true to see Repsol Hondas Marc Marquez up close, says Ankita Arora (32), a motorsports enthusiast who has travelled to Noida from Rajasthan to attend the three-day MotoGP Bharat — the first-ever pro racing event to be hosted in the country at Buddh International Circuit.It is exciting that I can experience such a big motorsports event live without travelling abroad. It will be a thrill to watch the ace racers rev up their magnificent machines on the fascinating BIC track. I am hoping to catch a glimpse of my favourite (Spanish rider) Marc Marquez. But I will be cheering for my favourite team Ducati, as I ride one too, said Arora, who has been riding bikes since she was 27 and is a member of xBhp, a motorsports club.Nearly one lakh motorsport fans are expected to turn up at BIC for MotoGP Bharat from Friday, even as foreign delegates, sports journalists and racing fans from different Indian states began arriving in Noida on Thursday for the three-day extravaganza.Shipra (45) said some of the best memories of her life were from a bike trip she took with her husband to the mountains of Uttarakhand. We rode to Chamolis Mana village located at an altitude of 3,200 metres near China border. This experience instilled a deep love for bikes and pro racing. Im looking forward to an exciting weekend.Twenty-year-old Prithvi Singh, who was hustling to get a ticket for the event, said, MotoGP has come to India, and I dont want to miss it at any cost. Others, like Abhisek (32), who could get their hands on a ticket, said the Rs 800 tickets were sold out and the rest were too costly. Ive been trying to get tickets online through the BookMyShow app, but unfortunately all tickets are sold out. Offline tickets are too expensive for me.A few other pro racing enthusiasts rued the lack of infrastructure in India for racers to be trained for motorsport grand prix. In our country, youths are exposed to motorsports much later in life when one needs to be trained from a much tender age to be able to match up to the skills of the global stars and take part in the Grand Prix. However, I am excited to experience it live, said Sundeep Gajjar, creator and founder of xBhp. Gajjar has travelled to 66 countries on motorcycles.
