Ishaan Dodhiwala snatched win from Li Huiwei on the last lap of the Volkswagen Vento Cup's Race 2 at Madras Motor Race Track.

 The Hyderabad-based driver was always on the toes of guest driver Huiwei and finally got the opportunity midway into the last lap to win.

The Chinese driver led all the laps from pole only to lose it on the final lap by 2.756s while another guest driver Sirish Chandran completed the podium.

Chandran was involved in a podium fight with Karminder Singh and Keith Desouza after Aditya Pawar and He Xixi lost out having made contact with each other.

Singh finished fourth ahead of Race 1 winner Desouza with rookie Karthikeya Singhee taking his best finish of sixth but long way off from Desouza.

The top 10 was completed by Jeet Jhabakh at seventh, Hatim Shabbir eighth, Arunshowry ninth and Arfath Mohammed 10th.

Joining Pawar and Xixi in the retirement list was Abhishek Vakil with Race 1 podium finisher Niranjan Todkari finishing a lap down.
