Ashwin was special in Rnd 1 of JKNRC

(Written by Mr. Sanjay Sharma, Head - JK Tyre Motorsports, published in Times of India on July 27, 2018)

Round 1 of the 21st JKNRC was a grand success, with each of the categories producing close, exciting races. In our premium FB02 class, everybody qualified within the same second while the difference between the pole and the last-placed machine on the grid was less than two seconds in other categories. This shows that our years of toil, right from picking drivers when they are just eight to nurturing them through all the stages in karting till they reach their pinnacle in professional racing at 15, is yielding results. Almost 50 Indians, all from our Racing stable, are now competing in various world events which is remarkable.

A great platform for women in motorsports

Over the last couple of days, we have been inundated with congratulatory messages, following the successful debut of an allwomen’s team in our National Racing Championship.

The truth is we were the first to encourage women to take up this macho sport, with the likes of Sneha Sharma and Mira Erda validating our efforts. In recent times, we have worked with FMSCI to create a women’s chapter which is already yielding results.

So, when former champion Sarosh Hataria proposed the idea, we gladly backed him. Over 60 women turned out for the selection trials which is amazing.
