Rabindra started off without much trouble as he led from Ananth Shanmugam at the end of lap one.

The temperature soared at the 2.1km long Kari Motor Speedway as India's young drivers fought out for the ultimate title.

As Rabindra stretched his lead, Dhruv Mohite moved up two places as he overtook Shanmugam and Nayan Chatterjee to slot himself behind the leader.

After already winning a race in the Formula LGB F4, Vishnu Prasad also moved ahead of Shanmugam and Chatterjee to challenge Mohite for second place.

Rabindra got a clear win in the first race as Mohite finished second and Prasad completed the podium.

Shanmugam finished fourth while Chatterjee completed the top five. Italian Costantino Peroni in his first ever race in India finished seventh.

There were four retirements in the form of Diljith TS, Akash Gowda, Sandeep Kumar and Krishnaraaj Mahadik.

Race two will start at 11:15 local time while race three will start at 14:45 local time on Sunday.
