Mumbai, Nov 19, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Taking his passion for racing to the next level, actor Kunal Kapoor has decided to pursue one of his many hobbies, as a professional sport.

The actor who is a huge F1 and rally aficionado, under the training of a professional couch, will be competing at the National Rally Championship next year.

Says Kunal Kapoor,“I always loved fast cars but I realized that I needed to get off the road to test my limits, otherwise I would be endangering my life as well as the lives of others. The adrenaline rush I get when I am behind the wheels is just something else! That’s when I got into rally driving, a year-and-a-half back”.

Adding that "My coach wants me to compete in the nationals. It’s a skill that needs to be honed as you need to understand your car, the terrain you are driving on — be it slush or mountains — and develop the stamina needed to focus on long hours of driving”.
