All eyes were on Chennai’s Ashwin Datta (Dark Don Racing) and Kottayam’s Amir Sayed at the 23rd JK Tyre National Racing Championship and both drivers didn’t disappoint.

Ashwin Datta, the championship leader, inched closer to the title with two podium finishes in the FLGB4 class at the KMS circuit on Saturday.

But it was Amir Sayed who stole the show at the Kari Motor Speedway. The 16-year-old, competing in the JK Tyre FMSCI National Racing Championship for the first time, sealed the Novice Cup category championship on Saturday. Even though with two more races to go, by winning all the 10 races so far he has ensured no one can surpass him.

"It has been a fantastic two days for me and I am thrilled. However, I would like to try and win the two remaining races as well on Sunday," said the teenager, who comes from a motorsports family. His father Sayed Senior was a rally driver many years ago.

The Kari Motor Speedway has undergone a massive facelift. The surface has been redone as a result of which the drivers were able to get a better grip. Race director Rajan Syal spoke of how the drivers felt better now.

"There has been improvement in the track conditions and the timings reflect it," said Syal. Earlier, the track length was 2.1km, which has now been increased to 2.6km in surroundings that are pleasant and bucolic.
