Aditya-Patel-Malayasia

 

Indian driver, Aditya Patel, put in an impressive performance to finish fifth in race two of the fourth round of the Audi R8 LMS Cup in Malaysia.

 

Starting fourth for the first race, Patel found himself in the path of a spinning Marchee Lee while fighting for the lead on turn two of the first lap. While Lee recovered from the spin, Aditya was forced to retire with damage to his car.

 

The incident meant that Aditya would start last for the second race as he had not recorded a lap time in race one. After starting last on the grid for race two, Aditya fought a gritty race up to fifth only to finish right behind the pole sitter, Alex Yoong, who finished fourth. The race was won by Marchee Lee of Hong Kong.

 

After the race, Aditya said, “It wasn’t the most ideal weekend. Marchee’s mistake cost me my race but at least we managed to claw something back in the end and get some points out of the weekend. The second race was one of the most exciting races I’ve driven, having started last and moved up through the field. I’d like to thank my sponsors, JK Tyres, Audi India and Jubilant for all their support”.
