Race day of the 2012 Indian GP is underway. And well ahead of Formula 1 are the support races taking their turn on the circuit. We caught up with JK Racing's Chetan Korada on our long walk to the paddock.
The 25-year-old with the prosthetic feet is a wild-card entry in team Meco Motorsport who are taking part in the JKRAS (JK Racing Asia Series).
Unfortunately, his team are on a down-slide. They started last on the grid and DNF after just five laps.
Chetan studied in Loyola college, Chennai and has been racing actively in Formula 4 with Swift engines in the domestic circuit that is dominated by Ashwin Sundar.
Ashwin interestingly, has been racing for more than 10 years now and is currently driving hard in the MRF challenge that features the new 2.0 litre Renault engines on a Dallara chassis.
With better fortunes than Chetan in the JK Racing Asia Series, is Aditya Patel.
He finished Race 1 yesterday in P3 and on the podium. Not bad for the Chennai driver who is an active racer with VW Polo.
