Coimbatore, June 9: Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay (Apex Racing) further underlined her stature as one of country’s top female riders by grabbing pole position in the girls section (Stock 165cc), introduced this season, as the Rolon round of the MRF MMSC Fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship commenced at the Kari Motor Speedway, here on Friday.

Coimbatore, June 10: The girls race in the Rolon round of the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship lit up an overcast day marked by intermittent showers with Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay of Apex Racing Academy team winning a thrilling battle at the Kari Motor Speedway, here on Saturday.

The day’s programme was truncated due to rains in the evening and two scheduled races will be run on Sunday that will have an early start at 9 am, it was officially announced.

In a very close and thrilling eight-lap race, pole-sitter Aishwarya was off to a bad start and briefly slid to third before recovering to take the lead. However, she got embroiled in a tight battle with Kalyani Potekar (Madhya Pradesh, Speed Up Racing) who nosed ahead in the last lap before committing an error at Turns 3 and 4 where Aishwarya got a jump on her to win the race.

While Kalyani was left to rue her riding errors in the last lap to finish second, Chennai’s Alisha Abdullah (Alisha Abdullah Racing Academy) came in third.

I had a very bad start. I don’t know what happened but I managed to regain my track position. I had a tough battle with Kalyani and in the last lap, I managed to close the door on her and it gave me just enough breathing space to win the race,” said Aishwarya who later won the TVS girls race, a support event, for a creditable double.

Another impressive winner on the day was Kerala’s Amarnath Menon of Gusto Racing who topped in the Super Sport Indian 300-400cc after front-runner Antony Peter (Kingdom Motorsport) packed up after the first lap.

Finishing second behind Menon, who faced little competition after he took the lead, was his team-mate Arun Muthukrishnan with Vivek Pillai (Rockers Racing) completing the podium.

One of the highlights of Sunday’s programme will be a 40-rider grid in the Stock (up to 165cc, Novice) race. The initial 58 entrants went through a process of qualifying and heats in two batches to make the grid for the race.

Coimbatore, June 11: Defending champion Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) and young Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten10 Racing) shared honours in the premier Super Sport 165cc class double-header with solid performances as the curtain came down on the Rolon round of the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship at the Kari Motor Speedway, here on Sunday.

While Jagan and Sethu, both from Chennai, scorched the track, Mithun Kumar, also of Honda Ten10 Racing, scored a double in the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) class that was run concurrently with the Super Sport Indian (165cc) class. Also scoring a double was Gusto Racing’s Amarnath Menon from Kerala who won both the races in the Super Sport Indian (300-400cc) category.

The Super Sport Indian (165cc) and the Pro-Stock categories had two races on Sunday, the first of which was held over from Saturday following rains and was cut to six laps while the second outing was run over 15 laps.

Jagan Kumar, among the lightest two-wheeler racers in the country, showcased his class and riding skills in Race-2 and made up for disaster in the previous outing when he dropped out of contention due to an electrical glitch to finish a distant eighth.

Having set right the electrical problem during the interval between two races, the reigning National champion played it safe at the start and even sacrificed two spots to fall to third. Once into his stride, there was no stopping Jagan as he moved smoothly past front-runner Mathana Kumar who committed an error exiting Turn-5 in the closing stages of the 15-lap race and eventually cruised to victory.

I had electrical issues with my bike in the first race as the engine kept switching off and on. After the race, we fixed the problem in time for the second race. I didn’t want to take chances when I went out again, but after a few laps, I picked up my pace and won,” said Jagan.

The first race winner Sethu, however, had a nightmarish time. Following engine failure at the start grid, he was forced to start from the pit-lane, but managed to move to fourth, before a mistake at Turn-1 saw him crash.

Earlier, Sethu, starting second on the grid, had to work hard for his win in the first race. At the start, he dropped a place to third before picking himself up to move up a place and slotted himself behind leader and team-mate Mathana Kumar.

With pole-sitter Jagan Kumar dropping off from the contest experiencing electrical problems, it was a three-way fight among leader Mathana Kumar , Sethu and Harry Sylvester (TVS Racing).

Sethu bided his time before slipping past Mathana Kumar at his “favourite” Turn-1 and then opened up a comfortable gap to win the six-lap sprint.

Kerala’s Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing) destroyed the 300-400cc field while winning both the races in this category. The second race today was run in intermittent showers, but that did not stop Menon from chalking up another fluent win.

Anup Kumar of RACR team took the honours in the Stock (up to 165cc) class which had a massive start grid of 40 riders.

The results (Provisional):

National Championship: Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc, Race 1, 6 laps): 1. Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten10 Racing) (07mins, 53.415secs); 2. Mathana Kumar (Honda Ten10 Racing) (07:53.947); 3.

Second round of the 2017 MRF MMSC Fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship

Chennai, July 6: After a four-month summer break, high octane action returns to the MMRT track in Sriperumbudur, near here this weekend with the second round of the MRF MMSC Fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship.

The weekend programme includes the inaugural round of the 2017 MMSC FMSCI Indian National Drag Racing Championship for two-wheelers that will see an exciting congregation of bikers and their machines.

To top it, country’s leading two-wheeler manufacturers Honda and TVS are having their separate One-Make Championships in Novice and Open classes where competition, as witnessed in the first round in Coimbatore last month, is extremely sharp.

While the 19 races are spread over three days, beginning Friday with qualifying sessions, the Drag competition gets underway on Saturday afternoon with practice runs, followed by the final runs on Sunday, making for one of the busiest weekends in recent memory.

The two-wheeler races have again attracted over 200 entries in the Super Sport Indian (300-400cc and 165cc), Pro-Stock, Stock and Girls categories which comprise the National Championship.

The championship for girls proved to be an unqualified success with Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay of Apex Racing Academy winning a tight battle against Madhya Pradesh’s Kalyani Potekar (Team Speed Up Racing).

We are very pleased with the response for the girls’ championship and we are hoping that the entries keep increasing through the season,” said Manoj Dalal, Chairman of the Meet.

As in the past, the Super Sport Indian (165cc) double-header is the showpiece of the weekend with country’s top two-wheeler racers. Reigning National champion Jagan Kumar along with his TVS Racing mates KY Ahamed and Harry Sylvester, besides Honda Ten10 Racing’s Rajiv Sethu and Mathana Kumar are set to renew their rivalry that is marked by plenty of thrills.

With two podium finishes in the first round, Mathana Kumar heads the championship with 36 points as against 29 of Jagan Kumar who after dropping points in Race-1 won by Sethu, bounced back to win the second outing in Coimbatore.

Equally competitive is the Pro-Stock class that will be run concurrently with the Super Sport Indian (165cc). Young Mithun Kumar of Honda Ten10 Racing has already had a head-start, having won both the races in this class in Coimbatore and will be looking to extend his domination.

In the Super Sport Indian (300-400cc) class, Kerala’s Amarnath Menon of Gusto Racing won both the races in Coimbatore with a measure of comfort and again, he will be the rider to beat in this class.

The Stock (165cc) class for Novice riders proved to be a huge success with over 50 entries for the first round that necessitated in qualifying heats to arrive at a grid of 40 for the point-bearing final race. It will be much the same this weekend.

Ryhana Bee, winner of Girls (Stock up to 165cc) race (July 08).jpg

Chennai, July 8: Rajiv Sethu of Honda Ten10 Racing, showing maturity far beyond his 18 years, came up with a stunning ride to win the premium Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class race in the second round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Morocycle Racing Championship at the MMRT track, near here on Saturday.

Aravind Balakrishnan, only 22, brought more cheer to Honda Ten10 Racing team by topping the Pro-Stock class that was run on a combined grid with the Super Sport Indian (165cc) while Kerala’s Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing) scored a dominant win, his third in as many outings, in the 300-400cc category.

In the Girls (Stock, up to 165cc) caegory, Ryhana Bee, the 23-year old from Chennai studying shipping and logistics, pulled off a fine win over pole-sitter Aishwarya Pissay (Apex Racing Academy) with a late-braking manoeuvre at Turn-4 mid-way through the five-lap race.

Aishwarya, winner of the first-ever National championship race for girls in Coimbatore last month, eventually came in third behind Madhya Pradesh’s Kalyani Potedar (Team Speed Up Racing).

Sethu, starting from pole position, yielded ground to reigning National champion Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) early in the six-lap race. However, in the third lap, Jagan dropped out of contention due to a technical problem with his bike and Sethu needed no second invitation to forge ahead. He gradually increased the lead to win from TVS Racing’s KY Ahamed and Prabhu Arunagiri (RACR) with about three seconds to spare.

“Early in the race, I had some problems with the bike and had no choice but to allow Jagan to pass me, but when he dropped out, I moved in front and did not look back. The team did an excellent job in giving me a winning bike,” said Sethu on notching his second in three outings.

Further down the field, another intense battle raged in the Pro-Stock class after pole-sitter Mithun Kumar (Honda Ten10 Racing) was shifted to the back of the combined grid for having missed the warm-up lap due to mechanical problems.

It left Aravind Balakrishnan and Aravind Ganesh (Team MotoRev) to fight for top honours. The duo kept trading leads before Balakrishnan got his nose in front to win with little to spare.

In sharp contrast, Menon, though starting second on the grid behind Deepak Ravikumar (Team MotoRev), was in a league of his own in the 300-400cc class race once he got into his stride that saw him move up from third to first and then extend his lead with each lap for another commanding win. Vivek Pillai (Rockers Racing) finished second while Ravikumar came in third.

Peddu Sri Harsha (No.46), winner of the Stock (Novice, 165cc) race (July 09).JPG

Rajiv Sethu (No.8), winner of the Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) race (July 09).JPG

Chennai, July 9: Riders from Honda Ten10 Racing team put in dominant performances as Rajiv Sethu and Mithun Kumar hogged the limelight even as another young gun Amarnath Menon of Gusto Racing achieved a grand double in the second round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship which concluded at the MMRT track, Sriperumbudur, near here on Sunday.

While 18-year old Sethu, in scoring a double, led a 1-2 finish for Honda Ten10 Racing in the premier Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class with Mathana Kumar finishing second, the team, spearheaded by Mithun Kumar, swept all three podium spots in the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) category.

Equally impressive was 21-year old Amarnath Menon from Kozhikode who extended his domination in the Super Sport Indian (300-400cc) class to repeat his performance of the first round at Coimbatore last month. Menon, thus, has won all four races in his class.

Peddu Sri Harsha (Sparks Racing) survived an incident-filled Stock (up to 165cc) race that boasted a grid of 39 riders and red-flagged after two laps following a series of crashes before re-starting to complete the scheduled five laps.

Much of the focus today was on the Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) and the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) classes which were run on a combined grid. Like in the first outing on Saturday, Sethu rode a well-judged race. Starting from pole, Sethu yielded ground to reigning champion Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) who made a daring pass on the left-hander in the Bridge Complex only to crash out at Turn-4.

Jagan’s exit came a lap after his team-mate KY Ahamed who was shadowing Sethu had crashed. It gave Sethu a clean run up front and he opened up a gap. for a comfortable win ahead of team-mate Mathana Kumar while Prabhu Arunagiri (RACR) finished third.

“I had a tough fight with Jagan initially and after he passed me at the Bridge Complex, I decided to bide my time before trying to regain the lead. But he crashed soon after and I broke free to win,” said Sethu who through meditation has learnt to reign in his aggression and impatience.

Mithun Kumar more than compensated for a horrendous first race where he finished sixth after starting last on the grid due to an errant bike, by destroying the Pro-Stock field for his third win in four races. His team-mates Anish D Shetty and Aravind Balakrishnan, winner of the first race yesterday, came in second and third, respectively.

“I was very disappointed yesterday when my bike had some electrical issues. Today, I started from pole and managed to open up a big lead. In the latter half of the race, I decided to play safe and just cruised,” said 23-year old Mithun who had won both the races in the first round.

The results (Provisional):

National Championship – Super Sport Indian (165cc, 9 laps): 1. Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten10 Racing) (18 mins:11.528 secs); 2. Mathana Kumar S (Honda Ten10 Racing) (18:15.594); 3. Prabhu Arunagiri (RACR) (18:16.178).

Super Sport Indian (300-400cc, 10 laps): 1. Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing) (11:54.706); 2. Deepak Ravi Kumar (MotoRev) (11: 54.865); 3. Vivek Pillai (Rockers Racing) (11:55.134).

Pro-Stock (165cc, 9 laps): 1. Mithun Kumar PK (Honda Ten10 Racing) (18:55.557); 2. Anish D Shetty (Honda Ten10 Racing) (19:06.148); 3. Aravind Balakrishnan (Honda Ten10 Racing) (19:06.610).

Chennai, August 3: The battle lines will be drawn afresh this weekend when the third round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship 2017 commences on Friday at the MMRT track in Sriperumbudur, near here with hectic jostling for leaderboard positions in all the categories.

As many as 19 races are scheduled to be run over three days after Thursday’s practice sessions besides the second round of the MMSC fmsci Indian National Drag Racing Championship which will be held on Saturday (practice) and Sunday evening (final runs).

The spotlight will be yet again on the intense rivalry between Honda Ten10 Racing and TVS Racing riders in the showpiece Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class while the path-breaking National championship for girls (Stock, up to 165cc), an MMSC initiative and introduced this season, has thrown up its share of exciting competition with Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay (40 points) of Apex Racing heading the leaderboard from Team Speed Up Racing riders Kalyani Potekar (36) from Madhya Pradesh and Chennai’s Ryhana Bee (35).

Likewise, the Stock (up to 165cc) class for Novice riders has proved to be a resounding success with 50-plus entries requiring two preliminary heats to decide the grid for the point-scoring final race.

In the other two categories of National championship, 21-year old Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing) from Kozhikode has dominated the Super Sport Indian 300-400cc class winning all four races so far while Mithun Kumar of Honda Ten10 Racing is comfortably perched at the top in the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) following three wins in four outings.

Country’s top two-wheeler manufacturers Honda and TVS have also weighed in with their highly competitive One-Make Championship in the Open and Novice categories besides support races exclusively for girls who are thus guaranteed plenty of track time over the weekend.

In the two rounds of the National Championship thus far, 18-year old Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten10 Racing) from Chennai has caused a big buzz with his dominating performances marked by three wins which put him ahead in the Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class with 75 points, just ahead of team-mate Mathana Kumar (66), and will be looking to consolidate his position.

Defending champion Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) has not had the best of starts this season with just one win and 37 points to show for his efforts to be placed fifth behind team-mates KY Ahamed (45) and Harry Sylvester (39).

Chennai, Aug 4: Defending champion Jagan Kumar of TVS Racing, who has not had the best of starts this season, warmed up nicely for the third round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship by roaring to pole position in the premier Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class at the MMRT track, here on Friday.

Jagan Kumar, currently lying fifth on the leaderboard, clocked an impressive one minute, 59.356 seconds, just ahead of championship leader Rajiv Sethu of Honda Ten10 Racing (01:59.912) while Harry Sylvester, also from TVS Racing, was the third fastest (02:00.242) before retiring with a mechanical problem.

In the Girls (Stock, up to 165cc) class, Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay of Apex Racing, who is looking to consolidate her position at the top, grabbed pole position, clocking 02:13.561, well clear of Alisha Abdullah (Team Alisha Abdullah) whose best was a 02:16.025 with fellow-Chennaiite Shruthi Nagarajan (Rocker Racing) in third spot at 02:16.516.

Honda Ten10 Racing team riders dominated the qualifying session in the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) category as Aravind Balakrishnan (02:04.556) and championship leader Mithun Kumar (02:04.955) occupied the top two spots on the grid ahead of S Sivanesan (Team Alisha Abdullah).

Dinesh Kumar (Team Alisha Abdullah) was the quickest in the Super Sport Indian 300-400cc category pipping leader Amarnath Menon to pole position while Deepak Ravikumar (Moto-Rev) was third.

After two heats in the Stock Up to 165cc (Novice) category, Hari Prasath (Chennai), Syed Nawas (Vandavasi) and Satyanarayana Raju (Hyderabad, Sparks Racing) topped the time sheets ahead of the points-scoring final race to be run on Sunday.

Pole positions in the One-Make Championship – Honda CBR 250 (Open): Kishoare VS (Apex Racing); Honda CBR 150 (Novice): Satyanarayana Raju (Hyderabad). TVS Apache RTR (Open): Yashas RL (Bengaluru). Novice: Anup Kumar M (Chennai).

Chennai, August 5: Defending champion Jagan Kumar of TVS Racing put in a command performance to score a crucial win in the third round of the MRF MMSC Fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship at the MMRT track, here on Saturday and moved up two spots to third on the leaderboard.

A very relieved Jagan Kumar (62 points) though had to fight hard for only his second win of the season that put him behind the front-running Honda Ten10 riders leader Rajiv Sethu (90) who barely nursed his bike to third-place finish and Mathana Kumar (66) in the championship stakes after a race that was cut to a four-lap sprint following a red-flag stoppage due to an oil spill on the start-finish straight and was re-started.

Jagan, starting from pole position, slipped to third due to a poor start as Sethu and Mathana Kumar passed him on the very first lap. However, the red flag stoppage provided Jagan a second chance while Sethu’s bike bled speed and Mathana retired due to an electrical problem. It set Jagan free and he was followed home by team-mate Harry Sylvester and Sethu.

“I am very relieved that I won today, though I was not happy with my pace. In Friday’s practice, I did 1:57 (one minute, 57 seconds) lap and today, I was two second off that lap pace. I had some issues with the bike, but I think I will not tinker with it for tomorrow’s second race,” said Jagan.

Also scoring an impressive win was Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay (Apex Racing) in the Girls (Stock up to 165cc) category to further consolidate her position at the top of the leaderboard with 65 points.

The race witnessed a bit of elbowing among riders at the front before Aishwarya overcame a poor start to clinch a dominating win to move to 65 points, ahead of Indore’s Kalyani Potekar (51) who was docked 10 seconds penalty for causing collision that took out Alisha Abdullah on the start straight and was placed third behind local girl Shruthi Nagarajan (Honda Ten10 Racing).

Aravind Balakrishnan, courtesy a fine victory in the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) category, caught up with leader and his Honda Ten10 Racing team-mate Mithun Kumar who finished a distant fifth. Both are on 83 points with the second race of the round to be run on Sunday.

In the Super Sport Indian 300-400cc class, Kozhikode’s Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing) saw his four-win streak ending in a cloud of dust as he crashed on the last lap during hot chase of Chennai’s Dinesh Kumar of the newly-formed Team Alisha Abdullah. Despite the non-finish, Menon is still comfortably placed at the top with 100 points, well clear of other contenders Deepak Ravikumar (51, Moto-Rev) and Vivek Pillai (75, Rockers Racing) who finished second and third respectively.

The results (Provisional):

Super Sport Indian (Up to 165cc) 4 laps: 1. Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) (08mins, 06.210secs); 2.Harry Sylvester (TVS Racing) (08:06.370); 3. Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten10 Racing) (08:12.951).

Chennai, Aug 6: Mathana Kumar of Honda Ten10 Racing finally emerged from the shadows of his peers while chalking up his maiden win of the season in the premier Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class as the third round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship concluded at the MMRT track here on Sunday.

Mathana, 25-year old from Trichy, with three second-place finishes in five outings this season, came good in Race-2 and the 25 points he garnered took him 91 points, just 14 behind team-mate Rajiv Sethu even as defending champion Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) squandered a double by crashing on the last lap.

Aravind Balakrishnan, also of Honda Ten10 Racing, dominated the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) class by completing a fine double which took him to the top of the leaderboard while Gusto Racing’s Amarnath Menon from Kozhikode scored his fifth win in six outings in the Super Sport Indian (300-400cc) class.

Anup Kumar M of RACR team took the honours in the highly-competitive Novice (Stock up to 165cc) race in a near-photo finish ahead of Sparks Racing duo of Satyanarayana Raju (Sparks Racing) and Sri Rahil Pillarishetty.

The Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) race was one of fluctuating fortunes. Jagan, winner of the first race on Saturday, initially led a tightly-packed bunch of five riders that also included Sethu, Mathana, and TVS Racing mates KY Ahamed and Sylvester.

Jagan looked good for another win until a problem with his bike saw him drop down the grid and later crashed on the last lap, but picked himself up to finish fifth. By then, Mathana had moved to the front with Sylvester in hot pursuit. Sethu survived a contact with Ahamed who fell and retired, to come in third.

I am very happy to score my first win of this season. I have had issues with the bike, but I was determined to win today. I kept myself in the front-running bunch and then passed Jagan, Rajiv and Ahamed, and then led all the way to the finish,” said Mathana.

The Super Sport Indian 300-400cc race was as dramatic with front-runner Dinesh Kumar (Team Alisha Abdullah) went into a water puddle at Turn-1 and crashed. It allowed Menon to move ahead along with Anthony Peter. The pair traded positions once before Menon took a decisive lead on the last lap and win a close race.

I had a bad start, but I managed to stay with Dinesh until he crashed at Turn-1. Thereafter, it was a close fight with Anthony Peter who overtook me once, but I regained my track position. It was very tight when we crossed the finish line. It is a huge relief for me after having crashed during practice, qualifying and the first race yesterday. So, I was keen to bring the bike home safely and glad that I did it,” said Menon.

The results (Provisional):

Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) Race 2, 9 laps: 1: Mathana Kumar (Honda Ten 10 Racing) (18:06.287); 2. Harry Sylvester (TVS Racing) (18:06.744); 3. Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten 10 Racing) (18:15.142).

Chennai, September 6: The heat is on in the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship as the fourth and penultimate round gets underway at the MMRT track, here this weekend with every point worth its weight in gold.

With the title contenders in various categories of the National Championship are bunched tightly, the pressure is on the riders to make every outing this weekend count. The previous three rounds witnessed close contests as the fortunes ebbed and flowed, thus making for riveting action which also threw up some young talent.

The action kicks off in earnest on Friday with qualifying sessions following practice runs the previous day. Saturday and Sunday will see early start and finish to accommodate the third round of the MMSC fmsci Indian National Drag Racing Championship for two-wheelers.

Also on the card are the One-Make Championships for Honda (CBR 250 and CBR 150) and TVS (Apache RTR 200 Open and Novice) with highly competitive grids along with support races for girls.

Among the major highlights this season have been the twin initiatives of the Madras Motor Sports Club whose persistent endeavour to promote the sport at grass-root level has borne fruit. The introduction of a category for Girls as part of the National Championship has been an unqualified success as also the Novice class (Stock, up to 165cc) that has consistently attracted 50-plus entries, requiring two heats followed by a final, points-scoring race with a 40-bike grid.

While the showpiece Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class has as many as four contenders for the title, the situation is similar in the Pro-Stock (up to 165cc) where it is a three-way battle while Amarnath Menon of Gusto Racing (125 points) enjoys a healthy lead over Rockers Racing’s Vivek Pillai (87).

To say the least, the battle between TVS Racing and Honda Ten10 whose Rajiv Sethu (105), the ever-improving 18-year old from Chennai, and Mathana Kumar (91) head the table, has been engrossing. Defending champion Jagan Kumar, the spearhead of TVS challenge, has had an up-and-down run this season as he finds himself fourth in the championship with 72 points, behind team-mate Harry Sylvester (75).

In the Girls category, Bengaluru’s Aishwarya Pissay of Apex Racing Academy, with two wins in three outings, leads with 65 points, just ahead of Indore’s Kalyani Potekar (Team Speed Up Racing) who has 51 while her team-mate Ryhana Bee (43) and Honda Ten10 Racing’s Shruti Nagarajan (42) of Rockers Racing, both from Chennai, are very much in the hunt.

The Novice class has Hyderabad’s Sri Rahil Pillarishetty (Sparks Racing) in the lead with 43 points, just three clear of local challenger Anup Kumar (RACR) and behind the pair are five riders separated by just nine points.

Chennai, September 8: Defending champion Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing) who is in desperate need of points following a tepid season so far, came up with a blistering lap to qualify for pole position in the premier Super Sport Indian (up to 165cc) class in the fourth and penultimate round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship at the MMRT track, here on Friday.

Chennai, September 9: In a dramatic turn of events following disqualification of two riders, Bengaluru’s 21-year old Aishwarya Pissay (Apex Racing Academy) clinched the title in the Girls category with a round to spare in the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship at the MMRT track here on Saturday.

Aishwarya had finished second behind Chennai’s Alisha Abdullah in the eight-lap race with Kalyani Potekar from Indore third. However, following post-race scrutiny, Kalyani was disqualified on technical grounds along with her Speed Up Racing team-mate Ryhana Bee who had come in fifth.

The revised result of the race took Aishwarya’s points tally to 83 and 32 points clear of Kalyani in the championship standings with just one more race to be run October 29-November 1 and a maximum of 25 points available.

“I am absolutely thrilled to win the championship with a round to spare. I am at a loss of words,” said a delighted Aishwarya on winning the National championship for girls, a category that was introduced this season. Incidentally, earlier this year, she won the Indian National Rally Championship for girls, also with a round to spare.

Meanwhile, the battle for points turned fierce as Jagan Kumar of TVS Racing and Deepak Ravikumar (Moto-Rev) chalked up crucial victories in their respective categories.

Jagan Kumar scored a fine win in the premier Super Sport Indian (Up to 165cc) class, holding off championship leader Rajiv Sethu (Honda Ten10 Racing) after the duo exchanged leads over nine laps before the TVS racer pulled away, taking advantage of back-markers.

Going into Sunday’s race of the double-header, Jagan, by virtue of today’s win, his third of the season, moved up to third place, just four points behind Mathana Kumar of Honda Ten10 Racing (101 points) who after a collision with TVS Racing’s KY Ahamed in the first lap, limped home fifth. Sethu continues to head the table with 123 points.

Likewise, Ravikumar survived a tight three-way fight in the Super Sport Indian (300-400cc) race that was red-flagged and reduced to six laps to finish ahead of Antony Peter (Team Alisha Abdullah) and championship leader Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing) who played it smart, going for points. Menon is still comfortably placed with 140 points to Ravikumar’s 91 with three more races, including one on Sunday and the double-header of the final round later this month.

The Pro-Stock category, which was run on a combined grid with Super Sport Indian (165cc), produced some drama as both the championship contenders in this category, Aravind Balakrishnan (108 points) and Aravind Ganesh (90) crashed and failed to pick up any points.

Team Alisha Abdullah’s S Sivanesan took the honours as Soorya PM, who had finished first, was disqualified for disobeying a “ride-through” penalty for jump start. Prabhu V (Sparks Racing) and Sahay S (Rockers Racing) finishing second and third, respectively.
