In the first race, Prashant and Kannan K were indulged in a fierce battle for the race win, which ended in acrimonious circumstances.

The two riders made contact at turn 1 on the final lap, with Kannan falling off the bike in the incident.

While he was able to get back on his RTR 200, Prashant had disappeared into the distance by then, taking the victory by a margin of 1.206s.

Rahil Peerzade finished second on road but was classified fifth after taking into account a 15-second penalty for a jump start.

This promoted Aravind Ganesh R and Shankar onto the podium, ahead of Arun Muthukrishnan and the aforementioned Kannan.

Naveej Raj was classified seventh ahead of Ashok George, Anand Kumar and Praveen Kumar, the latter securing the final point with 10th.

Vivek Pillai was among several riders who crashed out of the race, the polesitter losing his bike early on while leading the race.

The second race had a similar narrative with Shankar taking the victory after chief rival Pillai crashed on the final corner.

In a closely-fought race that saw several riders take the lead, Shankar eventually took the top spot on the podium, beating Race 1 winner Prashant by just 0.155s.

Muthurkrishnan completed the podium ahead of Peezarde, the last surviving rider in the lead group.

Behind, Ganesh came home in fifth, with T Ramakrishnan sixth and Hari Prakash seventh.  

The top-10 was completed by Naveen Raj, S John Paul and Anand Kumar S. Kannan K was classified down in 12th place after he crashed on lap 4.
