Race One

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.
