Ajith back on race track

We all know Kollywood's ultimate star Ajith Kumar's craze for car races! A professional car racer, he has driven in circuits around India and abroad for various races, including Formula Asia BMW Championships in 2003. When he felt a few years ago that this passion for car racing negativelyaffected his cine career, he voluntarily stopped participating in car races.

Now, a Malaysia-based Ajith fan clubstates that the actor has decided to participate in MRF Formula 1600 International Challenge series to be held at Madras Motor Race Track, Irungattukottai, Sriperumputhur on February 14. The prize money is Rs. 30 lakhs.

"He is going to race with the newly introduced MRF F-1600 race car along with the 'Fastest Indian' F1 racer Narain Karthikeyan and rising talent Karan Chandokh. It will be a 15 lap race. The car is built by MRF’s chief tuner J. Anand of Coimbatore and is equipped with 1600cc Ford Duratec engine that develops 130bhp," the press note said.
