Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar today inaugurated a Sky Karting track at Smaaash in Lower Parel in Mumbai.
Speaking on the occasion, Tendulkar said, I have always been a big karting fan, something which you cannot do on a normal roads, you can do it on a karting track.
On his love for Indian motorsports, he said, Motor sport is a fabulous sport and I really enjoy motor sport I felt even 30 years ago, or less than 15-10 years ago, the infrastructure for other sports was also not that great, we won whatever medals we could because of sheer talent in sports personalities we had.
"But in the last few years infrastructure is getting better, there are better facilities available to sports personalities and it reflects on the number of medals we have been able to achieve and go karting or motor sport is heading in that direction, so it s about being persistent and also supporting sports. If you support them, appreciate their performances they are all going to deliver and perform, they all need encouragement and we have to encourage sports in general," Tendulkar added.
The track is 430 meter multilevel-track, which is advanced and challenging for those who want to go to flat out, a release issued by Smaaash said.
