MRF Challenge to kick-start on Thursday


Chetan Korada is the lone Indian on the grid

The MRF Challenge will kick-start here at the Dubai Autodrome on Thursday.

Chennai-based 33-year-old Chetan Korada is the lone Indian on the grid that includes teenagers from Europe and Australian veteran Dylan Young, who has been a regular fixture in MRF Challenge.

Looking ahead to the season, Korada said: “This will be my second international season, also with MRF Challenge. My approach this year would be completely different. Last year was all about learning the car. I didn’t take part in the National championship this year, but did four days of testing in Malaysia in the summer.

“I have been studying the data as to where I can improve. I am continuing with MRF Challenge as they have been very supportive. So, overall, I am feeling good and hope to put in much better performances this season.”

The MRF Challenge will comprise 15 races spread over three rounds to be run in Dubai (November 21-23), Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain (Dec. 12-14) and MMRT, Chennai (Feb. 14-16, 2020).
