At the upcoming Bharat MotoGP round, scheduled for September 22-24 at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC), 26-year-old KY Ahamed is poised to make history as the inaugural Indian contender in the Moto3 World Championship, securing a coveted wild card entry.


Petronas MIE Racing is set to introduce KY Ahamed and Malaysian rider Shahril Danial Syahmi as wild card entrants in the Moto3 category, both piloting Honda NSF250R bikes. Throughout his career, KY Ahamed has amassed a remarkable list of achievements. He clinched the Pro-Stock 301-400cc category title in the 2020 Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship (INMRC). Since then, he has ventured into international racing, participating in the Thailand Superbike 400 series and Asia Cup Japan. This year, he's been making waves in the Asia Road Racing Championship, representing the TVS Racing Team aboard the TVS RR310 OMC.

An exuberant KY Ahamed expressed his journey from childhood dreams to present reality, stating, "I've always pursued my goal relentlessly, and now, I'm gearing up for my World Championship debut at the Buddh International Circuit next weekend."

He also conveyed his pride at being the first Indian in the Moto3 World Championship and extended heartfelt gratitude to everyone whose unwavering support paved the way for this remarkable journey.

Bharat MotoGP Track

The upcoming weekend marks India's inaugural appearance on the MotoGP calendar. Although the layout of the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) remains largely unchanged, several modifications have been implemented to align it with the rigorous standards set by the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM). These enhancements encompass track surfacing improvements and a significant expansion of the gravel run-off area. Additionally, organizers have taken extensive safety measures by installing over 1,800 meters of new safety barricading.
