The Race

Semi Finals 1 & 2 started sharp by 11:30 AM today & all kids performed lot of drifts around the corners to clinch their pole.

It was time for the final race & Karun Chandhok, F1 Driver gave a surprise visit to the grounds. Whole crowd was overwhelmed & Finals was flagged off by Karun Chandhok.

Totally 8 cars were on track including Subhiksha, the only girl on Final Grid!! It’s really awesome to see girls making into track these days & we were quite speechless the way she drove. Kudos to her from the team of The Automotive India.

Nabeel, the only guy on track who was fiercing competitor for everyone. He was driving extremely well with pretty clean racing line. Karun was surprised by the drift which Subhiksha tried around the corners & he was motivating everyone on track.

It was a 12 lap race & 6th lap turned disastrous for Subhiksha as she rammed into tire walls around a sharp corner. She was eliminated from the race & she got down from the car with tears fleeing away.

It was time for Chequered flag by Karun & Nabeel clinches the pole ahead of others by 6seconds followed by Srutjik & Aksha.

hmm.. any acts on track for the first time will have a daring effect.

Dont get tensed, be cool & yes. Racing includes absolute concentration & lot of practice.

You need to practice atleast 4 Hrs on ECR kar attack track to set the fastest lap.

its just 0.345km track. then imagine the pressure on our F1 drivers !!

Yeah that girl driver was really cool! I would say she was the best on track , even Karun Chandok was really impressed with the girl's driving but unfortunately her excellent race came to an end with a crash!
