The Bangalore Racing Stars and Mumbai Falcons team had luck on their side when it came to healthy cars, and a skilful squadron of drivers, both factors favouring them at the two rounds of the X1 Racing League. The Bangalore Racing Stars put on a great show at the BIC round with drivers Arjun Maini, Oliver Webb, Vishnu Prasad and Michelle Gatting finishing on podium in both the races on the opening day. Drivers of the Bangalore Racing Stars also raced hard in the unique relay format held on the second day at the BIC. Specific to the name, the format is exactly related to how it’s played out at the Olympics (Pass the Baton). Only here, the second car from every team heads out only once the first car pits in behind it at measured intervals. To the best of my knowledge, the only event to pull off a relay till date is the Birkett Six-hour relay race held at the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.
