High action in offing at National Racing Championship this weekend

High action in offing at National Racing Championship this weekend

Coimbatore, Jun 21 (UNI) Packed and quality grids will feature the second round of the MRF-MMSC FMSCI Indian National Racing Championship to be held at the Kari Motor Speedway here this weekend, which will also witness the opening round of the Volkswagen Ameo Cup.

As in the previous seasons, the MRF F1600 winner at the end of the championship comprising 12 races over four rounds, will earn the right to participate in the Mazda Road To Indy shootout in the United States.

The shootout winner will be eligible for a scholarship of USD 200,000.

The MRF Formula Ford 1600 will no doubt headline the programme.

It boasts of a 14-strong line-up featuring established racers like Raghul Rangasamy, Kolkata’s Arya Singh, who last year won the Formula LGB 1300 championship, Karminder Singh, the 2017 VW Ameo Cup champion,

Karting graduates Yash Aradhya and Nayan Chatterjee, besides Sandeep Kumar, the 2017 first runner-up.

The weekend card also includes the ever-popular saloon cars that will be competing in three categories--the premier Indian Touring Cars, the Indian Junior Touring Cars and the Super Stock besides the Esteem Cup

--and the Formula LGB 1300 which, like MRF F-1600, joins the National championship from this round.

The ITC grid has been considerably strengthened as two Coimbatore veterans 54-year old Narayanaswamy Leelakrishnan (ARKA Motor Sports) and Arjun Balu (Race Concepts), 43, both former champions, have thrown their hats into the ring.

Leelakrishnan, who returned to racing after a gap of 17 years in 2011, sat out of the 2017 season, while Balu was staging a comeback after a five year gap.
