Arya Singh and T.S. Diljith signed off on a merry note winning a race each in the premier class, the LGB Formula 4, in the second round of the 26th JK Tyre FMSCI National Racing Championship at the Kari Motor Speedway here on Sunday.

After a double victory the other day, Arya added one more to his kitty winning the opening race. It was not easy though for the Kolkata youngster as his teammate Diljith was hot on his heels.

Starting on pole, Arya gained the early advantage but Diljith caught up with him only to hand it back to the former.

The fight between the two had the spectators at the edge of their seats. However, towards the end, it was Arya who held his nerve to cross the line. Tijil Rao (Dark Don Racing) made a smart move in the final lap to finish ahead of Diljith.

Arya agreed it was tough all the way but was pleased with his efforts.

In the second race, Diljith, Tijil and Arya made it all the more memorable by taking the top three slots on the podium once again. This time around, Diljith did a much better job. It came as a sweet surprise for the team as he started from P9.
