After the intense success of Maruti’s motorsport division’s Autocross project, which saw some intense country wide participation. The series saw participation from across the spectrum from stock cars to purpose built autocross machines, all competing on makeshift mixed surface tracks all trying to set the fastest time around. This time Maruti has gone all in all with the new series which returns as the Autoprix, with all new tracks and some exciting twists and turns. The series will be held over 5 months, comprising of seven rounds across the country culminating in a final at the Buddh International Circuit, which will no doubt be reworked for dual surface action. All in all, this is one of our picks for an exciting racing series which brings motorsport straight to the people and to your backyard. Through the season the championship will travel to  Bangalore, Pune, Coimbatore, Chandigarh, Indore, Gurgaon and Guwahati.

To make the pot sweeter the grand prize for the season winner will be the all new Maruti Suzuki Swift, aside of course from round wise cash prizes.
