After a Special Sports Car section was inaugurated at the GeDee Museum, friends and family members of the late S. Karivardhan got to see his biopic on the big screen at the Kari Motor Speedway circuit in Chettipalayam on Thursday evening. And those who watched it were moved to tears seeing those magical moments of the legendary star. From his early days to his daring exploits with the machines that he designed and developed was well told in a little over an hour.

Somebody in the crowd said that he felt like Kari had actually come to life at the small airstrip (now Kari Speedway) where he used to often test his gliders. It was quite true as the video biography had everything about the great man.

In fact, nobody could believe that the family had shot so much (photos and live visuals) about him and his glorious days. When they saw Kari screaming down the Sholavaram circuit and challenging the very best, they cheered him all the way as they would do today.

The film not only featured his races but also how he designed and constructed the racing cars and solved various technical problems with technology available at that point of time.

Kari’s sons, Arjun and Nithin, also looked mesmerised seeing their beloved father at his best. And they assured to carry forward his great work in the best possible manner.

But the man who drew the biggest applause from the crowd was G.D. Rajkumar, the trustee of GeDee Car Museum, who took a lot of initiative to retell the story of Kari.
