After concluding an action packed and eventful Round 2 at the Kari Motor Speedway near Coimbatore JK Tyre Volkswagen Vento Cup arrives at Buddh International Circuit (BIC) for Round 3 & 4 of the 2015 Championship. While Round 2 of Vento Cup 2015 witnessed some amazing performances all round it is New Delhi’s Karminder Pal Singh who is leading the charge on the championship table followed by Hyderabad’s duo Anindith Reddy and Ishaan Dodhiwala. Karminder tops the table with 200 points closely followed by Anindith with 196 points and Ishaan with 158 points. Amongst the juniors, it’s once again New Delhi’s Sahil Gahuri leading the pack with a comfortable lead of 30 points over Rithvik Thomas.
Round 3 of the JK Tyre Volkswagen Vento Cup will take place at BIC, India’s only F1 circuit. After the first two rounds at Kari Motor Speedway, the drivers will now be exposed to a high-speed track that offers the right mix of flowing corners, tight hairpin bend, chicanes and fast straights. Before the drivers get competitive, over the weekend, they will undergo a mid-season testing on 14th October which will allow them to get accustomed to the new track. Post mid-season test, the drivers will also have their second fitness camp on 15th October in association with British Nutritions to ensure that they are working out in the right way to train their bodies for the extremes of racing.
Sirish Vissa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India, commented: “We have witnessed a cut-throat competition in the first two rounds and I expect it to get even better in the upcoming rounds at BIC. It is exciting to see that there is a fair amount of competition for every position in the championship. Three junior drivers are contending for positions in the top 10 in the championship – this is a sign that the young drivers are picking up very well.”
