Actor Nivetha Pethuraj has a keen interest in formula racing and that is exactly what she pursues these days. The actor recently shared a few videos and photos of herself doing the rounds.
“A vision for visual. Metaphorically speaking, when you push the limiter you have to hold the clutch, upshift and accelerate,” she captioned a video. Another clip’s caption read, “Raw lap.”
Nivetha had previously shared a photo of herself in the race car, captioning it: “Another vision.. Another dream.. Another life.”
According to Times of India, Nivetha Pethuraj has already completed the first level of the racing car training program conducted by Momentum School of Advance Racing.
About her passion for racing cars, the actor said: “My interest in cars started during my school days when I was in 8th grade. An aunt in my neighborhood bought a sports car. It sparked my curiosity about sports cars and it kept brewing in me for years. In 2015 I bought a Dodge Challenger sports car and I was the second girl in the UAE to get it my father wasn’t even happy because he was worried about the V6 engine which has a fast racing ability Nevertheless I was confident in to ride it and felt so cool.”
Nivetha also opened up the opportunity to compete in championships in the future. She told TOI: “I have been approached for many championships already. But it requires a lot of investment and dedication for track practice. Moreover, it is easy for me to get sponsors as I have become a well-known face in the industry. It is an expensive sport as each race costs about Rs 15 lakh. So I’m only going to run it if I’m too excited about it. For now, my interest and desire is to complete different levels.”
