Grand double for Arjun Balu. Tirhvik Thomas

Chennai, Aug 18 (UNI) On a day which began in heavy showers
and ended in bright sunshine, Coimbatore veteran Arjun Balu
(Race Concepts) completed a grand double in Indian Touring
Cars class to emerge on top of the leaderboard as the fourth
round of the MRF MMSC-FMSCI Indian National Car Racing
Championship concluded at the MMRT, about 40 km from
here, on Sunday.
Also achieving a double was Bengaluru’s Rithvik Thomas
(Race Concepts) in the Super Stock category.
Overshadowing the day’s proceedings was the 10-car pile-up
in the MRF F1600 race that started amid heavy showers and
lasted barely 300 metres. as pole-sitter Yash Aradhya spun
when he put wheels into a puddle, thus losing grip.
The cars behind him, with nowhere to go, crashed into one
another resulting in the abandonment of the race.
None of the drivers suffered injuries, barring cuts and bruises,
but with 10 cars badly damaged, it was decided to cancel today’s
scheduled three races and run them in the next round in
September.
“The next round in September will have seven races in
MRF F1600 category. It was an unfortunate incident with
Yash running into a puddle and spinning. With so many
cars badly damaged, we decided to put off today’s three
races and have them in the next round,” Chairman of the
Meet Vicky Chandhok said.
