We aim to make Devils Circuit Bengaluru a landmark race and will continuously engage with our Devil Slayers here to make it a bigger and better experience every year. We are also confident that we'll receive a greater response with each passing year, thereby making the Devils Circuit one of the most sought-after races in South India. We would also like to extend our thanks to our amazing sponsors Maruti Suzuki swift, Reebok, Apollo Hospitals and Playfish who are on a multi edition journey with us and who make it possible for us to create this amazing engagement platform."

A similar thought was echoed by Mr. R. S. Kalsi, Executive Director - Sales and Marketing Maruti Suzuki India Ltd.: "We truly believe in the potential of Devils Circuit and find tremendous synergies between our two brands. Devils Circuit is designed to appeal to the young and Vibrant India. Brands like the Swift have a cult following among the youth and beyond. Our endeavour is to create platforms that allow young and aspiring Indians to break free from the mundane, explore newer avenues, innovate, and challenge their limits. With a focus on celebrating our customer performance, we feel the Devils Circuit is the right platform for this engagement and we shall work as a team towards a bigger and better future for both brands."
