Chennai III MRF F1600: Reddy takes maiden single-seater win in Race 2

The Hyderabad-based driver came close to his first win in Race 1 on Saturday, but for an off moment dropping him to third.

He made amends in the second race on Sunday, the Indian taking advantage of a reverse grid front-row start, demoting polesitter Rangasamy quickly, to take the lead.

It was then the job of keeping Rangasamy behind until the chequered flag, which Reddy did to register his first win in the championship, finishing 9.630s ahead.

Sandeep Kumar completed the top three after he overtook Race 1 winner Vikash Anand on Lap 5 in the last corner, with Karthik Tharani finishing fourth.

Anand's day worsened after he dropped to finish sixth, as newcomer Biren Pithawalla claimed his maiden top five finish.

Actor/racer Jai Sampath Kumar was seventh ahead of Arjun Narendran, Chetan Korada and Abhinay Bikkani.

Anshul Shah's crashed out from the race, while Tejas Ram suffered puncture.
