Though the latter leads the table, the former will not go down without a fight

Defending champion Raghul Rangasamy from Chennai will look forward to dominate when the penultimate round of the 22nd JK Tyre FMSCI National racing championship gets underway at the Kari Motor Speedway in Chettipalayam here on Saturday.

Raghul struggled a bit on the opening day in the last round held at the same venue. But the MSport driver, with 47 points, came back with a bang the next day to finish second and went on to win the final race for a place atop the leaderboard in the FLGB4 category.

And, he wants to be right up there this time as well. But city-mate Vishnu Prasad is expected to make life tough for him. He has seen many such challenges and will look to make amends after an eventful round that saw him surrender the top slot to Raghul.

Dark Don’s Diljith is another gritty customer who can well spring a surprise or two. The Kerala star knows well that two good races over the weekend can well tilt the balance in his favour.

Mumbai’s Aaroh Ravindra of Momentum Motorsports is the driver in command in the JK Tyre Novice Cup. But it’s going to be a battle all the way between Syed Muzamil Ali (Bengaluru) and Tanay Gaikwad (Pune) in the JK Tyre Suzuki Gixxer Cup.
