Raghul Rangasamy, Ashish Ramaswamy corner glory in National Racing

Chennai, Sep 9 (UNI) Raghul Rangasamy, hailing from the nearby temple
town of Mamallapuram, emerged champion in the coveted MRF Formula 1600
category, while Ashish Ramaswamy bagged Indian Touring cars title, as the
MRF-MMSC FMSCI Indian National Racing Championship 2018 concluded
at the MMRT, here on Sunday.
The title earned Rangasamy a ticket to this year’s Mazda Road To Indy
shootout in the United States, a dream that the 25-year old pursued
through the season.
With three podium finishes this weekend, Rangasamy, who led Goutham
Parekh (Chennai) by 11 points at the start of the final round, did just enough
to clinch the championship.
Rangasamy’s final tally was 182 points (two wins, seven podiums) as
against Parekh’s 174 (two wins, six podiums). Mumbai’s Nayan Chatterjee
completed a double, winning Race 1 and 3, while 16-year old school boy
from Bengaluru Yash Aradhya topped in Race-2, his second success in his
debut season in this category.
Rangasamy, who thrives on speed which induced him to take to racing
rather late at 19, was delighted with his championship title, but said he
would have loved to end the season with a win.
“I feel great to win the championship and look forward to the Mazda
Road To Indy shootout. I wanted to finish the season with a win, but
happy that I took the title at this level considering that I started racing
only when I was 19'', he said.
