National Car Racing C'ship: Over 60 entries received for second round as 4W racing resumes

Chennai, Jan 5 (Ajit Weekly News) Salem lad Sai Sanjay and Bengaluru’s Chirag Ghorapde will continue their battle for the top spot in the F2000 category as the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Car Racing Championship 2022 resumes this weekend after a three-month break

The second round of the competition is scheduled for January 6-8 at the Madras International Circuit.

Monsoon rains and cyclone Mandous led to an enforced break, but despite the longish interval, over 60 entries have been received for the second round which will commence on Friday with free practice sessions, followed by qualifying and 13 races spread over Saturday and Sunday.

It will be a busy month for the competitors as the third and fourth (concluding) rounds are scheduled for January 20-22 and January 27-29, also at the MIC, to complete the 2022 championship.

Undoubtedly, the MRF Formula 2000, among the quickest racing cars in the region, will highlight the weekend card with a bouquet of four races, including one held over from the previous round in October that was truncated due to rains.

The other categories – Indian Touring Cars, Indian Junior Touring Cars, Super Stock, MRF Saloon Cars (Toyota Etios) and the Formula LGB 1300 – will all have three races apiece.

As for the competition on the track, the races are expected to be close and exciting as was the case in the first round in October. Salem lad Sai Sanjay and Bengaluru’s Chirag Ghorapde won a race apiece in the MRF F2000 where both outings in the first round witnessed wheel-to-wheel competition.

In the premier Indian Touring Cars category, defending champion Arjun Balu (Race Concepts) from Coimbatore, piloting the modified Honda City VTec, was in a league of his own, taking the flag in the only race run in this class.
