Coimbatore II Euro JK: Shanmugam wins Race 1

At the start of the race, 2015 Vento Cup champion Anindith Reddy moved to the lead with a jump-start, for which he was handed a 20-second penalty.

This gave the initiative to Shanmugam who went on to secure a comfortable victory, having started on the second on the grid.

Pole-sitter Chatterjee, who got bogged down at the start, eventually finished third, rights on the heels of Tharani.

Mohammed Nalwalla, who is duelling the Euro JK campaign with a full-season’s drive in F4 SEA, finished fourth ahead of Dhruv Mohite and Akash Gowda.

Ajay Kini was classified seventh ahead of the aforementioned Reddy and Manav Sharma.

Karminder Singh, who is also competing in the Vento Cup, was 10th and last of the classified finishers, as several drivers failed to start the race.
