Pune: Harith Noah and his Team TVS Racing teammates are all geared up after a break of two-and-a-half months as the action resumes in the 19th MRF MoGrip-FMSCI National Supercross championship at Codessia in Coimbatore on Sunday.
With Ang’ata Racing rider CD Jinan taking the honours in the last round at Goa when Noah suffered a minor crash, the contest has become interesting going into Round 3.
Noah will be astride powerful TVS RTR300, while Jinan will ride Kawasaki KX250 as the contest in the SX1 Foreign Open Class will see tight racing as the 6-round championship reaches midway stage.
“Besides the top class the SX1, I am happy to say that Junior Class has really geared up with so many new entries coming in for supercross show,” said Shyam Kothari, the Director of Godspeed Racing, the promoters of National Supercross.
“In SX1 fight between Jinan and Harith will be the one to watch out for. The track we have laid out is very fast that has close jumps and is very technical that should entertain the crowd,” said Kothari, himself a seven-time National champion.
Like in other rounds, Joker Lane now has become a part and parcel of Supercross racing that adds some element of suspense to the contest.
The technically demanding track is 700 meters long that includes 10 jumps, a tabletop, whoops and berms that intends to separate the boys from the men.
One of the top attraction of the Round 3 is that for the first time Coimbatore will see Freestyle stunt riders in action.
“We have two top notch stunt artists in Callum Shaw of New Zealand and Shaun Webb from Australia, who will display some mind-blowing stunts on their motorcycles,” he said.
“Godspeed Racing has regularly hosted a round of the National Supercross in Coimbatore over the last decade and we have had immense support from the vast community of riders from this region,” Kothari said.
