Super
Shreyas

Shreyas,
weighing
only
31kgs,
showed
consistent
pace
over
six
laps
to
win
from
Axor
Sparks
Racing
pair
of
Rohan
R
from
Coimbatore
and
Mumbai’s
Kayan
Zubin
Patel.
Finishing
fourth
was
pole-sitter
and
championship
leader
Sarvesh
Balappa
(Axor
Sparks
Racing)
from
Hubballi.

“I
made
some
mistakes,”
was
all
that
Shreyas
said
after
the
win,
referring
to
a
marginally
slower
last
lap
that
resulted
in
a
tight
finish
while
almost
negating
the
comfortable
lead
he
had
enjoyed
until
then.

led
a
1-2-3
finish
for
Petronas
TVS
Racing
team
in
the
Pro-Stock
301-400cc
Open
category
while
Pacer
Yamaha
enjoyed
a
double
podium
with
Prabhu
Arunagiri
taking
a
win
and
team-mate
Mathana
Kumar
finishing
third
behind
Idemitsu
Honda
SK69
Racing’s
Rajiv
Sethu
in
the
Pro-Stock
165cc
Open
race.

Ahamed,
Deepak
Ravikumar
and
Jagan
Kumar
came
home
in
that
order
in
the
premier
Pro-Stock
301-400cc
category
with
defending
champion
Rajini
Krishnan
(RACR
Castrol
Power1)
limping
home
in
seventh
place
after
losing
the
gear
shift
lever
in
the
second
lap
and
the
engine
stuck
in
fifth
gear.

Prabhu shines

Later,
in
the
Pro-Stock
165cc
Open
category
race,
Prabhu
Arunagiri
snatched
a
dramatic
win,
closely
followed
by
Sethu
and
Mathana
Kumar.
The
trio
crossed
the
finish
line
almost
locked
together
after
championship
leader
Mathana
Kumar
conceded
his
track
position
in
the
last
lap,
running
wide
at
Turn-11,
to
fall
from
first
to
third.

The
race
was
reduced
to
five
laps
due
to
a
delayed
start
with
pole-sitter
KY
Ahamed
(Petronas
TVS
Racing)
starting
from
the
pit-lane.

Steady lead

The
FMSCI-sanctioned
race
itself
fell
flat
after
Ahamed,
starting
from
pole
position,
opened
a
steady
gap
ahead
of
Ravikumar
and
Jagan
Kumar,
and
Rajini
Krishnan
fading
from
the
contest,
and
the
rest
of
the
pack
unable
to
match
the
pace
of
the
front-runners.
