I am glad that in this short span, I have been able to achieve some good results and that gives me the confidence that there’s more in store for me. At this stage of my career, it was important for me to start building a professional team around me and the first need beyond the technical bit was having a commercial partner. I am glad to be joining hands with IOS Sports & Entertainment who undoubtedly are one of the most professional and seasoned sports marketing entities in the country,” said the 25-year-old Pragathi Gowda.

IOS Sports & Entertainment today also announced the signing of yet another promising Rally Rider Yuva Kumar into their fold.

With nearly two decades of rallying experience on two wheels, Yuva currently competes for the Hero Motorsports Team Rally.

“Motorsports is an expensive sport and after a while to step up, we all need commercial partners to help us take us to the next levels in our careers. Last year has been a good year in my career and to now take the leap it was important for me to have experts with me. I am glad that I found that in team IOS and I am looking forward to my association with them,” said Yuva Kumar on his partnering with IOS Sports & Entertainment.
