Coimbatore: Kolhapur's Parth Ghorpade, representing Team Amaron Pro Racing with Meco, celebrated his 17th birthday with a fighting yet delightful win in the senior class in the third round of the seventh JK Tyre-FMSCI Indian National Rotax Max karting championship at the Kari Motor Speedway in Chettipalayam, near here on Friday.
It wasn't an easy victory for Ghorpade. Red Rooster Racing's hot star Mohit Ahuja ran him close but Ghorpade had the last laugh.
Bangalore boy Raj Bharath of Meco Racing stamped his class in the junior segment. In fact, it was Red Rooster Racing's Arjun Maini who held the advantage for most part of the day.
But, Bharath reserved his best for the final. He latched on to a golden chance that came his way in the 10th lap and steered his way through to the chequered flag much to the delight of his team.
The micro max class, which was run in two parts, turned out to be the most exciting with the positions changing time and again in the qualifying, heats and the pre-final.
The results (provisional): Seniors (22 laps): 1. Parth Ghorpade (Amaron Pro Racing with Meco); 2. Mohit Ahuja (Red Rooster); 3. Nikhil Kashyap (Amaron Pro Racing with Meco). Juniors (20 laps): 1. Raj Bharath (Meco Racing); 2. Arjun Maini (Red Rooster); 3. Ameya Bafna (Rayo Racing. Micro Max: 1. Jehan Daruwala (Rayo Racing); 2. Abhirath Shetty (Red Rooster); 3. Kush Maini (Red Rooster Racing) .
