After venturing into the fitness business through SportsFit gyms, Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has floated his own racing team called MSD R-N Racing Team India which is now competing in the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) Supersport World Championship.

The championship is a support race for the World Superbike Championship, which will make its India debut in March 2013.

At the launch of the team in July, Amit Sandill, Team principal said, “We are looking at it from the long-term perspective. Trying to grow the sport in Asia. The sport itself is in a pretty nascent stage in Asia so this is a first step.”

As per the team’s website, Dhoni is part of the management, while actor Nagarjuna Akkineni has been mentioned as a Director. Nandish Domlur, a cardiac surgeon by profession, is the CEO and Mangaging Director of the team.

The team entered the 17-race championship in the 10th race at Brno, Czech Republic and is expected to compete full season in 2013. The team has two riders in Florian Marino of France and Dan Linfoot of Great Britain.

Marino is a four-time Superstock 600 race winner, and was a full time Honda WSS rider last year. Linfoot had won two Superstock 600 races in 2008. The squad has its base at Yeovil in the UK and technical director will be Andrew Stone.
