Mokokchung, November 4: Speaker, Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA), Sharingain Longkumer has urged the Indian Federation of Motorsports Council India (FMSCI) to nurture local talents while stating that that there is no shortage of talents in Nagaland when it comes to sports.
He was speaking at the inaugural programme of the 2-day Indian National Autocross Championships (INAC) hosted by the Adventure and Motorsport Association of Mokokchung (AMAM), in collaboration with the Bangalore Motor Sports, and under the aegis of FMSCI. At Rempukong, Ungma, Mokokchung on November 4.
Reminding the gathering that the venue has been identified for the laying of astroturf football ground, Longkumer stated that events such as the autocross provides a glimpse to the possibilities that will eventually unfold in the years to come.
Although the low population in urban areas of Mokokchung district is one of the reasons that stands as an obstacle to fulfilling the aspirations of the people in many respect. An event of this magnitude is very important for the people as this place has been earmarked to become the sports destination in Mokokchung, he said.
President, AMAM, Moasashi Jamir expressed his hope that the event will help in fostering friendships and unity among the motorsports enthusiast.
AMAN is privileged to be the host of the INAC East Zone 2022.
He also thanked the INAC, Bangalore Motorsports Association and FMSCI for coming to a remote and interior place like Mokokchung.
While AMAM has organised several motorcross events in the past, this is the first national championships for the Association.
“We may have experienced setbacks in organising the talent but we will learn from this experience, and I hope that the FMSCI and INAC on seeing the enthusiasm of the people for the sports will work hand in hand with the local talents in the days to come,” he said.
Around 50 participants are taking part at the 2-day champions with 7 participants from outside Nagaland.
In the individual category, 22-year-old Ronan Bazely of Shillong Meghalaya was adjudged the driver with the fastest time in the INAC-2 (open category).
