Racing Team India overcame some tough hurdles to wrap up their maiden season in the Asian Le Mans Series in 5th place. Narain Karthikeyan, Arjun Maini and Naveen Rao piloted their LMP2-spec Oreca-07 prototype to 5th place in the final two races of the 2021 season.
The result may not be enough for the team to secure an automatic entry into the fabled 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. But nevertheless, as the first all-Indian team to compete internationally in endurance racing, this outing marks a new milestone for India on the global motorsport stage. The team will now be hoping to catch the attention of the Selection Committee for the 24 Hours of Le Mans to secure an invite.
