A Former Bike Champion MS Prince has a good start in Rally Racing

   Mar 17,2023

Maninder Singh Prince won a National Championship in motorcycles for over 5 years before switching to four wheels and winning on the first try.
Racing takes hard work, dedication, and a lot of luck. Most importantly, you must choose your area of specialization and stick to it. Prince has been a part of the Indian racing since 2008, starting on dirt bikes and consistently finishing on the podium for a decade. He then changed his concentration to four wheel racing and is now an active participant in India's rallying.


Motorcycle Racing

Singh's involvement in the motorcycle industry began in 2008. He began his career in the dirt and quickly found success, capturing the National Dirt Track Championship in 2008 and 2009. He also competed in the National Supercross Championship from 2008 to 2018. He never won the race outright, but was always on the podium during his tenure racing in the series. Singh has also worked with the Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki, having won both of his titles on Kawasaki motorcycles.

Rally Racing

In 2020, he began his first full season, competing in the INRC3 category. He finished first and third in the first two rounds conducted in Arunachal. The third round was held in Coimbatore, where he finished third once more. While he did not win the title, Singh was signed up by JK Tyre Motorsport, which is a huge boost for any driver in India.

Singh would prefer to forget the 2021 season because he had three DNFs in three rounds owing to mechanical difficulties, putting him out of contention for the championship. Round 1 was held in Chennai, and after sliding to ninth in the standings owing to minor mechanical difficulties, Singh came back to finish fourth despite tipping his car. Due to technical troubles, he finished fourth in his class in Round 2 of the season in Coimbatore.

His fortunes began to turn after Round 3 in Bengaluru, where he started the rally in the top place and maintained it. Nevertheless, a minor collision on Day 2 dropped him to second in the overall standings. Round 4 was placed in Nagaland, and he had a chance to win the championship there. He used strategy to finish on the podium and win the 2022 INRC3 title.
