Kankanala Sports Group (KSG) has launched INDE Racing, India's first FIM-licensed independent motorsport team. The announcement follows KSG's exclusive nine-year partnership with FIM E-Explorer for overseeing races in India.

Abhishek Reddy Kankanala, founder of Kankanala Sports Group and INDE Racing, expressed the team's commitment to breaking new grounds in Indian motorsports. The team aims not only to compete on the racetrack but also to promote sustainability, gender equality, and innovation.

Pissay, along with international riders Spenser Wilton from Canada and Sandra Gomez from Spain, the reigning champion of the FIM E-Xplorer World Cup, forms a diverse and talented team.

Aishwarya Pissay commented, "Being able to be part of a project aiming to represent all Indians worldwide and make them proud is a unique opportunity." The team is actively searching for a competitive Indian male rider to complete its roster.
