Cholavaram, also spelled Sholavaram, is a suburb 24 km (15 mi) north of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. It is primarily known for the Cholavaram lake and the adjoining defunct motor racing track. The race track was used as an air strip during World War II; racing events were conducted between the early 1960s and the late 1980s. Racing events usually took place every year until the Madras Motor Sports Club built a new track at Irungattukottai, Sriperumbudur, Chennai.
