THE IN­MRC IS THE PROVER­BIAL HOLY grail of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing in In­dia and this, the third round, was full of ac­tion, drama, and cut-throat com­pe­ti­tion. Here is the com­pe­ti­tion-wise break­down of the all the elec­tri­fy­ing races.

IN­MRC Stock 165

Antony Peter has been a dom­i­nant force in the Stock 165 races, and con­tin­ued his dom­i­nance in race one of the third round of the com­pe­ti­tion. Joseph Mathew pushed him through­out the race, though, even­tu­ally fin­ish­ing just half a sec­ond be­hind him. Race two, how­ever, was an­other story al­to­gether. Mathew took the lead on the very first lap and held on to it, and while Peter had bat­tled for sec­ond spot and re-claimed it with three laps to go, Anish Shetty sud­denly surged ahead on the last lap, climb­ing from fifth spot to fin­ish sec­ond.

IN­MRC Pro-Stock 165

Hari Kr­ish­nan has been the leader of the pro-stock races so far, but he had to set­tle for just one third-spot fin­ish across both races in this round as his com­peti­tors re­ally stepped up their game. Kanan Kar­nan and Di­nesh Kumar fin­ished first and sec­ond re­spec­tively, with Prabhu A com­ing in a dis­tant third in race one. The podium looked al­most noth­ing alike for race two, though, as the lat­ter clinched sec­ond spot, with Ra­jiv Sethu com­ing in first and the afore­men­tioned Hari Kr­ish­nan tak­ing the last spot on the podium.

IN­MRC Su­per Sport Na­tional Cham­pi­onship

TVS Rac­ing’s Ja­gan Kumar is the cham­pi­onship leader and the one to watch in the Su­per Sport 165 Na­tional Cham­pi­onship, but in race one he was con­spic­u­ous by his ab­sence. Ja­gan lost pole po­si­tion on a tech­ni­cal dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion, started from the back of the grid, and crashed out on Turn Two on the sec­ond lap. This and an­other strong com­peti­tor, K Ra­jini, also bow­ing out due to tech­ni­cal is­sues meant K Y Ahmed clinched an easy vic­tory. Ja­gan was not to be de­nied in race two, how­ever, for he rose to the oc­ca­sion and crossed the che­quered flag nearly two sec­onds ahead of Sarath Kumar and Deepak Raviku­mar who clinched the sec­ond and third spots re­spec­tively in both races.
