New Delhi, May 19 (IANS) Hemanth Muddappa, a 12-time National champion, was in his element once again becoming the fastest quarter-miler in India as he broke the national record at the 10th edition of the Vroom Drag meet.

On his way to winning the grand triple in the Bikes Open event which is held along with the Round 1 of the FMSCI Indian National 4w Drag Championship at the Taneja air strip, near Hosur on Sunday.

Muddappa of Mantra Racing set a time of 09.264seconds in the Super Sport 4stroke 1051 to 1650cc class to break the previous record of 9.298sec set at the same Taneja track by Jordanian Fahim Zahrani in 2023.

Foreign riders are allowed in the Open events by FMSCI, the Indian federation.

The Bengaluru-based champion put the 2024 Suzuki Hayabusa built by Mantra Racing to good use, touching top speeds of 270kph.

He also broke his own record in the Super sport 851 to 1050cc class with a 9.415sec run that erased the 9.480sec he set at Amby Valley in 2016 astride a BMW S1000RR.
