Bengaluru, May 14 (IANS) Faridabad’s Manav Sharma clinched the Senior Max titles in the Rotax Max Kart Open and the Rookie Cup at the Meco Kartopia Circuit here on Sunday.

In an intense head-to-head duel, BPC Racing’s Manav got the better of Nirmal Uma Shankar from Chennai to clinch the title.

Manav started with a bang on Saturday, winning three races and taking the second place in the fourth for a grand opening tally of 38 points.

Manav, however, wilted under the pressure exerted by Uma Shankar on the second day, managing a solitary victory to pick up just 32 points from the four races. However, it was good enough to give him a total of 70 points in the Open category and 67 in the Rookie category and the two crowns.

Uma Shankar started off slowly on the first day, mustering just 26 points. But he more than made up on the second day, taking 38 points with three victories and a second-place finish.

Sri Lanka’s Kevin Perriera took the third place in the open category while Birel Art’s Shreyansh Jain upstaged him in the Rookie category.

The Junior Max was an equally close tussle between Shahan Ali Mohsin (70 points) and Aditya Swaminathan (62), with the former taking the rookies’ title. Both were, however, pipped to the post in the Open category by Chirag Ghorpade.
