The team comprises of 10 SUVs with drivers, Co- Drivers, Navigators, Pit Crews, & Mechanical Backup Staff.
Team owner Sajad Alam told Agence India Press that, we were working out a deal with the Himalayan motor sports association for almost a year now. It took us time for the legal aspect of the project, But we have recruited some of the best &experienced drivers for the event, then the promotions had to be started at a short notice , but I hope we will do our best to overcome any shortcomings as this will be debut for us too.
“All the drivers and navigators had to be recruited from Delhi, Rajasthan, and Mumbai because our youth does not enjoy a free access to these facilities, so we are looking forward to set up a Young driver academy in Jammu & Kashmir that will identify our own young talent in all motorsports from Karting to Crossroads and even Formula. But that needs a lot of hardworking and we will be able to nurture the hidden talent of our own boys and girls throughout the world.” (AIP News)
