Singh wins second Vento cup race of finale weekend

Championship contender Karminder Singh took a fine win in the second Volkswagen Vento Cup race of the final weekend at the Buddh International circuit amid foggy weather conditions.

A reverse grid formation saw Prabhanjan Paruchuri started on pole with Raghav Sharma alongside him. The race started behind the safety car because of the fog-laden circuit.

After few laps, the race was on with Paruchuri defending his lead from Sharma before a contact at the back of the field, bringing the safety car out again.

At the second restart, Paruchuri couldn't handle the pressure as he spun giving the lead to a fast charging Singh, who had made his way up from sixth.

Behind Singh, it was Ishaan Dodhiwala and Sailesh Bolisetti second and third after they started fourth and eighth respectively.

Singh created enough buffer to take win registering the fastest lap of the race with a time of 2m26.644s, the only driver to dip into the 2m26's.

Dodhiwala finished second while Anindith Reddy took the final podium position with Bolisetti fourth after he was penalised for overtaking under safety car.

Guest driver Advait Deodhar continued his impressive run finishing fifth as Volkswagen China Polo cup driver Zhang Quan Shang sixth behind closely chased by Dhruv Behl at seventh.

The top 10 was completed by Pradeep Vaidyam at eighth, front-row starter Sharma eventually finishing ninth and Sahul Gahuri 10th.

Polesitter Paruchuri retired as did guest Chinese driver Yang Shuo while the sister duo of Neha Dabas and Ria Dabas were 16th and 18th respectively.
