Italian Costantino Peroni took a lights-to-flag win in the second JK Tyre Racing series race at the Buddh International Circuit.
Starting from pole, Peroni held his nerve being chased by championship leader Vishnu Prasad to keep his lead.
A fast starting Nayan Chatterjee was also on their tails followed by Akhil Rabindra. But soon, Prasad lost ground giving Chatterjee the opening and Krishnaraaj Mahadik too made the opportunistic move to get into the podium slot.
The young Italian was unfazed at the front and took a dominating second win of the championship finishing 6.747s ahead of second-placed Mahadik.
Chatterjee rounded off the top three after losing a position to Mahadik in the closing stages of the second race. Mahadik also clocked the fastest lap with a time of 2m08.262s.
Rabindra eventually finished a distant fourth ahead of Ananth Shanmugam at fifth. Newcomer Chittesh Mandody had a good run to sixth keeping Prasad at bay.
A disappointing seventh for the leader as Sandeep Kumar was eighth, Parth Ghorpade ninth, completing the top 10.
Diljith TS retired on the last lap while Karthik Tharani a lap before.
