We Were at the buddh in­ter­na­tional Cir­cuit (biC) for the fi­nal round of the 20th JK tyre fMSCi na­tional rac­ing Cham­pi­onship. for the fi­nal round, in ad­di­tion to the 155-cc gixxer mo­tor­cy­cles, the fans were treated to the screams and whines of big­ger-ca­pac­ity ma­chines. let’s take a de­tailed look at what tran­spired in the 600-cc class which pre­dom­i­nantly com­prised of tri­umph Day­tona 675s.

RACE ONE

gurvin­der Singh was the fastest dur­ing qual­i­fy­ing and earned his place at pole with a time of 2:05.083. right be­hind him were Vi­jay Singh and anand na­gara­jan. When the lights went out, rac­ers swarmed to­wards C1 (first cor­ner), each one try­ing to make the most of the first cor­ner. how­ever, by the end of the first lap it was ev­i­dent that the real bat­tle was lim­ited to the top duo of gurvin­der and Vi­jay. al­though Vi­jay put up a good fight, by the end of the five-lap race gurvin­der had gained that much-needed edge to beat his ri­val to the fin­ish line. anand was the third man across the line; al­most half a minute be­hind the leader.

RACE TWO

gurvin­der rode a bril­liant race once again, set­ting the fastest lap of the race at 2:02.774. un­for­tu­nately, he was pe­nalised for a tech­ni­cal in­fringe­ment and earned a Dnf (did not fin­ish). a fo­cused and con­sis­tent Vi­jay took home a well-de­served first-place tro­phy. With gurvin­der out, anand moved up to sec­ond place while Sharat r Shetty oc­cu­pied the last step on the podium.
