“We’ve reached the point where the new courses are working great and actually probably a little bit better than the ones that were there before. It’s a bit faster and also allows the top racers to have a better racing experience. We are also now back on the Kartavya track as we had to do a small detour and it is really great for the race. We can’t wait to see the nation’s capital hit the starting line,” said AIMS General Secretary and VDHM 2023 Competition Director Hugh Jones.
