Bengaluru: Faridabad’s Muskan Jubbal won the Karting Slalom crown to emerge as the star of the FIA Girls On Track (GOT) extravaganza here on Sunday evening.
The GOT program, being held on the sidelines of the JK Tyre FMSCI National 4-stroke Karting Championship 2019, saw Muskan complete the course with an impressive timing of 1:40:91 minutes.
Sharavantika Lakshmi won the second place with a timing of 1:51:62 mins while Noorul Sara cornered the third position by finishing the task in 1:53:24 mins
In the Biking Slalom, Sunita Deshar emerged victorious with a time of 1:35.34. Sandhya Saranya of Chennai (1:43:93) and Sanjana Mohanraj of Bengaluru (2:24:03) took the other two podium places.
The Meco Kartopia track came alive this Sunday with over 50 girls, including 8 from Nepal participating in the GOT program.
A handful of 8-year-olds too turned up to get initiated into motorsports along with teenagers and women in their twenties.
They went through the entire drill of starting on racing simulators before eventually competing in the go-karting and biking slaloms. In between, they underwent a batak reflex test and a basic pit-stop to be set for proper racing.
Meanwhile, it was business as usual for hardcore racers in the finals of the Round 1 of the Sodi Kart Sprint. IANS
