Putting up a dominating show, Vishnu Prasad of Meco Racing emerged champion in Senior Max category in the Round 2 of the JK Tyre-FMSCI Rotax Max National Karting Championship, here on Sunday.

Vishnu won all the four races in his category — two heats, pre-final and final, at the JK Tyre-MMS Kartainment Track.

Krishnaraj Mahadik of Mohite won the Junior Max category and defending champion Pradyumn V Danigund won the Micro Max.

In the final race, Vishnu started on pole position and maintained his outstanding lead throughout the 25-lap race.

“It was the best weekend for me. The track is very fast but I just maintained my driving line. I think now I’m in a good rhythm now. I only need to maintain the same for next rounds,” Vishnu said.

In the Junior Max category, Krishnaraj started from the second position. Pole position holder Mahaveer finished at second but was given seven-place penalty for cutting-through the track. In the Micro Max, Rd 1 winner Pradyumn V Danigund continued his winning spree and won the Round 2 as well. He led the pack throughout the 15-lap race.
