Sports Current Affairs October 1st Week 2017

1. Jagan Wins Sixth Title in a Row at National Motorcycle Racing.

TVS Racing`s mascot Jagan Kumar notched his sixth straight title in the premier Super Sport Indian (165cc) class on a rain-affected day to bring down the curtain on the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship, on Sunday.

Massive downpour in the early hours disrupted the proceedings here but a herculean effort by officials got the club circuit (short loop, 2.1 Kms) ready for racing with the full circuit (3.7 Kms) not available due to water-logging.

Thus, three of the seven races were cancelled since the championships in those categories were already decided.

Going into Sunday`s race, Jagan enjoyed a six-point lead over Honda Ten10 Racing`s Rajiv Sethu, but the expected challenge did not materialize as the latter crashed at Turn-2 in the very first lap.

Thereafter, Jagan was on a cruise mode and seemed content to finish second behind Sethu`s team-mate Mathana Kumar who eased past in the last lap. Harry Sylvester (TVS Racing) came in third.

It was a splendid comeback by Jagan who, at one point in the season, trailed Sethu by 33 points but three back-to-back wins, including one yesterday, put the TVS Racing rider`s campaign back on track as he clinched the title in this class, previously known as "Group B", for the sixth year in a row by a comfortable 24-point margin.

Aravind Balakrishnan (Honda Ten10 Racing) took the title in the Pro-Stock class though he finished a distant eighth in the race won by his team-mate Anish Shetty. Balakrishnan thus finished with 138 points, 13 ahead of Aravind Ganesh (Moto- Rev).

The National champions: Jagan Kumar (TVS Racing , Super Sport Indian 165cc), Aravind Balakrishnan (Honda Ten10 Racing, Pro-Stock), Amarnath Menon (Gusto Racing, Super Sport Indian 300-400cc), Sai Rahil Pillarishetty (Sparks Racing, Novice 165cc), Aishwarya Pissay (Apex Racing, Girls 165cc).

Team championship: Gusto Racing (Super Sport Indian 300- 400cc); TVS Racing (Super Sport Indian 165cc); Honda Ten10 Racing (Pro-Stock); Sparks Racing (Novice, 165cc); Apex Racing (Girls, 165cc).

MMSC One-Make Championship winners: Rajiv Sethu (Honda CBR 250), Satyanarayana Raju (Sparks Racing, Honda CBR 150), S Sivanesan (TVS Apache RTR 200 Open), Anup Kumar (TVS Novice) and Nitish Kumar (Yamaha R15 Novice).
