Sandeep Kumar started the first race on pole position but was taken at the lights by Nirmal Umashankar; unfairly, though, and Nirmal was penalized for a jumpstart. Regardless of that, Sandeep got the lead back mid-way through the first half and continued to a flawless victory. Nirmal’s race went from bad to worse as he ignored the drive through penalty which gave him a 30-second time penalty, too, and a spin at Turn One meant he finished in last place.
Ashwin Datta, who scored a hat-trick in the last round, got caught up in the main body of racers, finishing in seventh position. The remaining podium places went to Raghul Rangasamy and Goutham Parekh in second and third respectively.
