Sports loving star Ajith to take on heroes of MRF Formula racing:
The third and final leg of the MRF Formula 1600 cc Challenge 2010, at the Madras Motor Sport Club track at Irungattukottai near here will have a star ‘vrooming away’ in the car as one of the competitors on February 14 to enthrall the crowds who packed the stands last week.
Superstar Ajith Kumar will be reliving his passion for motor sports as he had started off as a bike race before an accident and an injury to his back forced him out of the sport. A few years back he returned to the track and took to Formula car racing at Silverstone in England also before bowing out again to pursue his film career.
Ajith, whose latest film ‘Asal’, in which he essays a double role again, hit the screens earlier this week, drove around the track in the MRF Formula 1600 cc car. Assisting him and giving him tips were MRF Brand Ambassador and India’s first F1 driver and motor sport icon Padmashree Narain Karthikeyan and Ashwin Sundar, who is leading the table with 37 points from the last three races. After surveying the track, Ajith went on a number of practice laps in the car, marked no 10. Pulling into the pit lane on two occasions he conferred with Narain and Ashwin for some tips for the qualifiers tomorrow. To add more pep to the proceedings this Sunday, singing sensations Shalini Singh and Karthik will also be entertaining the spectators.
