Actor Nivetha Pethuraj's keen interest in formula racing is not exactly a secret. She has been pursuing her passion these days, and recently shared a couple of videos and photos of herself doing a lap. She captioned a recently shared video, “A vision to visual. Metaphorically speaking, when you hit the limiter, hold the clutch, upshift and throttle the f* on.” Another clip was captioned “Raw lap.”

According to a media report, Nivetha has already completed the first level of formula race car training program conducted by Momentum School of Advance Racing. Expressing her passion for race cars, she said, “My interest towards cars started during my school days when I was studying in 8th grade. My aunt in my neighbourhood purchased a sports car. It ignited my curiosity towards sports cars, and it kept brewing in me for years. In 2015, I purchased a Dodge Challenger sports car, and I was the second girl in UAE to get it. In fact, my father wasn't happy as he was concerned with the V6 Engine, which has a fast racing power. Nonetheless, I was confident driving it and felt so cool.”

Opening up about the possibility of entering championships in future, she said, “It's a costly sport as every race will cost around Rs 15,00,000. So, I will be getting on with it only if I am too keen about it. For now, my interest and desire are all about completing different levels.”
