There is a lot to look forward to this Saturday as the JKNRC will raise the curtains to an action-packed weekend. JK Tyre's crowning glory, the Euro JK 17 category will have FB02 Formula open-wheeled racecars covering the grid. This season, the segment will see a lot of heat especially from overseas. Last year's champion Anindith Reddy will not only have to defend his championship from fellow competitors, last season's second runner-up Nayan Chatterjee and 2017 LGB4 champion Vishnu Prasad, but also international drivers, Italian Paolo Ippolito and Australian Ricky Capo. Ricky Capo was last year's European Le Mans Series winner.

Woman power in both categories will be represented by 17-year old Mira Erda, who also becomes the first lady driver to compete in the Euro JK 17, and Sneha Sharma in the LGB4 series.While previously JKNRC has been all about four-wheelers, come Saturday it is set to change.
