After acing the practice and qualifying sessions, guest driver Devin Robertson bagged a lights-to-flag victory in the third race of the Volkswagen Ameo Cup. The South African VW Cup racer crossed the finish line over 10sec ahead of runner-up Karminder Singh and also clocked the day’s fastest lap in 1:54.238.
Starting second, Sandeep Kumar lost his position to Karminder in the very first corner, and had to settle for third. Sandeep, however, successfully defended his podium finish from Donavan Vaz’ attacks; Vaz started sixth and worked his way up to fourth.
Devin being a guest driver, top points were awarded to championship leader Karminder. Sandeep currently stands second in the points tally. The second and final Ameo Cup race for Round 2 will follow a reverse-grid format. In it, positions of the top eight finishers of Saturday’s race will be reversed. Rohit Goyal will start on top, followed by Keith D’Souza and Dhruv Mohite.
