Patodia leads IndiKarting c’ship
JJK TYRE HAS produced India’s best racing talents and with the IndiKarting Championship they intend to unearth talents who would be nurtured similarly from karting level onwards, as they have done in the past. With Rayomand Banajee and Rayo Racing at the helm of organisation, the series has become a hot prospect for budding racers. The series comprised of three championship classes, Pro Cadet, Junior and Senior, as well as several support categories like amateurs, corporate, interschool, women and media.
The first three rounds; Pune, Goa and Vadodara, have concluded. In the Pro Cadet class, Aadityansh Kaulshi has opened up a sizeable difference on nearest rival Hoshmand Elavia. Kaulshi was trailing Elavia after Pune but he took the lead in Goa and made the most of Hoshmand’s poor performance in Vadodara. Saatvick Kogileti is 12 points behind Elavia with Ranveer Singh and Raunaq Sinha hot on Kogileti’s heels.
The Pro Junior category comprised of only two racers for the opening two weekends, however three more players have entered the class in Vadodara. Jonathan Kuriakose and Aditya Joshi are neck and neck, with only five points separating the two. Mira Erda gained maximum points in her first weekend at her home weekend in Vadodara. With that she became the first female to win a race in the Pro classes in the IndiKarting series.
Moving on to the big boys in the Pro Senior where Anjan Patodia has been the man to beat as he has consistently been finishing on the podium in almost every other race. The battle behind him is heating up between Rahul Sharan and Aaroh Ravindra with the latter trailing by just three points. Rishab Rathi and Alex Bora complete the top five of the championship.
Round four takes place in Ludhiana on May 28-29 with the grand finale in Delhi two weeks later. ⌧
