F4 Indian Championship IRL Night Street Races Chennai
Chennai is gearing up for a significant event on December 9 and December 10, featuring the Formula 4 Indian Championship and the Indian Racing League (IRL) night street races. The Tamil Nadu government, with an expenditure of Rs 42 crore, is backing the event, which stems from a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in August between the Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu (SDAT) and Racing Promotions Private Limited (RPPL), the race promoters.
It is confirmed that the F4 Indian Championship and the night street races will take place on a recently constructed 3.7-kilometer circuit, now recognized as India’s lengthiest street circuit, encircling the iconic Island Grounds. Udhayanidhi Stalin, the Minister of Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare and Sports Development, eagerly announced India’s inaugural Formula Night Street Race. He described the racing track as laying the groundwork for the Chennai Formula Racing Circuit.
The Formula 4 Indian Championship will showcase night street races, featuring 12 skilled drivers organized into 6 teams representing various parts of the world. Simultaneously, the Indian Racing League (IRL) is set to feature 24 drivers and 12 cars, including six accomplished female racers distributed among six teams. The Chennai night street race will serve as the conclusive round for IRL, while Formula 4 will wrap up on December 17 at the Madras International Circuit (MIC).
The teams participating in IRL include Hyderabad Blackbirds, Chennai Turboriders, Bangalore Speedsters, Goa Aces, Speed Demons Delhi, and God Speed Kochi, the Season 1 Team champions. Notably, the Chennai event will feature two IRL races, one each on December 9 and 10. Additionally, Formula 4 will have a total of three races, with one scheduled for Saturday (December 9) and two for Sunday (December 10).
