Third Round of MRF-MMSC Indian National Racing championship from Friday

Chennai, Jul 18 (UNI) The third round of the MRF-MMSC FMSCI Indian National Racing Championship, which has never failed to dish out high octane action while throwing up fresh talent, would be held at the
MMRT here on Friday, even as the competition hots up among title contenders in various categories.
The championship returns to the MMRT after a gap of five months after the first round in February and the next in Coimbatore last month.
A card of 12 races has been scheduled for the weekend.
The programme includes Volkswagen Ameo Cup, besides the first round of the MMSC-FMSCI Indian National Drag Racing Championship 2018 for four-wheelers, which would be held post-lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
The three races in the MRF F1600, now in its seventh season, has proved to be an excellent platform for young guns to showcase their racing talent.
The added incentive to the winner of the championship in the MRF F1600 was the chance to participate in the Mazda Road to Indy shootout in the United States later this year. The winner of the shootout will receive
a scholarship of USD 200,000.
The previous round at Coimbatore witnessed the emergence of 19-year-old Ashwin Datta from Chennai, who won all the three MRF F1600 races in a display of raw pace that blitzed the field and gave himself a head start
in the championship.
The other open-wheel single-seater category, Formula LGB 1300, threw up three different winners--Team MSport’s Nabil Hussain, Sohail Shah and Ashwin Datta (Momentum Motorsports)--in the season opening triple-header in Coimbatore last month that accurately reflected the competitiveness of the races.
