Amir and Arya share the honors of Formula LGB4
After Arya Singh (Dark Don Racing) dominated the wet on Saturday, it was Amir Sayed’s turn to show why he is classified as a class driver.
The Ahura Racing star controlled the pace and the field to win the opening race of the day for Formula LGB4 cars in round three of the JK Tire National Racing Championship here on Sunday.
Amir got off to a good start and defended his position in the opening laps before breaking away to win far ahead of his mentor Vishnu Prasad (MSport).
Mark his authority
It was the second victory for the youngster from Kottayam this season. But he could not do much in the second race as Arya showed his authority to win the final race and achieve a nice double.
MSport’s Ruhaan Alva streak came to a halt on Saturday when he was given a 10-second penalty for crossing the white line out of the pits. It turned out to be costly as he slipped to 13th place after crossing the finish line first.
However, his teammate Jaden R. Pariat thrived with a place on the top step of the podium.
Ruhaan didn’t let that play out in his mind and came back strong to snatch first place in the next two races.
Meanwhile, Anish D. Shetty had a nice double in the JK Tire Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup.
