Hyderabad: Hyderabad’s Anindith Reddy was crowned Euro JK 2017 champion as the curtain came down on the 20th JK Tyre-FMSCI National Racing Championship at Greater Noida on Sunday.

India’s Sai Rahil Pillarisetty (from Hyderabad) claimed the third round of the Asian Cup of Road Racing by completing a fine double on Sunday. The other Indians in fray, Israel Vanlalhruaizela and Lal Nunsanga of Aizawl, were however nudged off the podium.

Anindith Reddy, who won both the races on Saturday, was again dominant on Sunday. He won the morning race, again with a 4-second margin, but in the last race of the season he was truly phenomenal.

He hit the chequered flag 10 seconds earlier than his two friends and fierce rivals Nayan Chatterjee and Vishnu Prasad. Mumbai’s Nayan had a goodSunday, taking the second place in both the races.

“It was a fantastic season,” champion Anindith said. “I began the first round slowly and it became really exciting by the second. This weekend has been amazing and I am glad to win the title once again,” he added.
