  • Ashwin, Vishnu, Joseph start as favourites in 2nd round of JKNRC
    SourcesAshwin, Vishnu, Joseph start as favourites in 2nd round of JKNRC

    The Chennai trio of Ashwin Datta, Vishnu Prasad and Joseph Matthew will aim to consolidate their positions at the top of the leaderboard as the curtain goes up on second round of the 21st JK Tyre national racing championship here on Saturday. Ashwin Datta, who surprised the field by nosing ahead in Round 1 of the blue riband Euro JK 18 event despite not winning a single race, will hope to rectify that. He was very consistent though, managing three podium finishes to garner 24 points. Sri Lanka's Brayan Perera and Karthik Tharani, however, are just one point adrift (at 23 points) and will hope to dismantle Ashwin from the top. They won two races each but also finished fifth and sixth in the other two to slide down the table. Mumbai's Nayan Chatterjee will also be pushing hard to prove his class. He suffered an early setback as his car forced him to pull out in the season's first race. He made up in the last three races to add 20 points into his kitty and he will be eager to fire in this round. "It was a great opening round and it did throw some surprises. I am sure the teams and drivers are raring to go and we look forward to another exhilarating round of racing," Sanjay Sharma, head of JK Tyre Motorsports, said. Chennai's Vishnu Prasad was imperious in the LGB Formula 4, sweeping 22 points in the three races. He, however, will be feeling the heat as his buddy Raghul Rangasamy is just one point behind him. The LGB class will again be the cynosure of all eyes, with the Ahura girls creating a buzz with their presence.
