During race two of the MRF Challenge Formula 2000’s visit to the Buddh International Circuit, several drivers got some unexpected air on the back straight.
If there’s one thing a racing driver doesn’t expect as they enter the braking zone at the end of a long straight, it’s a huge bump that pitches their car into the air.
That’s what happened to Ralf Aron – and to a lesser extent, Kim-Luis Schramm and the chasing Mick Schumacher – during race two at the former venue of the F1 Indian Grand Prix.
The MRF Challenge Formula 2000 cars were pitched into the air after hitting a bump on the back straight, at the entrance to Turn 4.
While the cars were off the racing line at the time, a bump that size and the resulting air isn’t something you expect to see.
