Mr. T. T. Varadarajan, Managind Director of Preethi and an avid motorsports enthusiast himself, said,”We want to set up a platform where we can help talented youngsters who do not have the means to access world class coaching facilities. Being proficient in riding motorcycles for racing or street riding is all about managing power, enhancing individual performance and perfecting safety. These are synonymous with Preethi’s values for its brand portfolio of home appliances.”
