Ashwin Sunder and Jordon King extended their tussle into day two of the MRF Formula Championship, with the drivers registering a win apiece in the Formula 1600 category, here at the MMRT, Irungattukottai, on Sunday.
Ashwin continued from where he left off on Saturday, as he completed a comfortable win in the first race of the flagship Formula 1600 category. The Indian added to his lead with each passing lap and took the chequered flag more than four seconds before King, who came in second.
The tables were soon to be turned, as King came in first in the last race of the day, almost 12 seconds ahead of his second-placed rival Ashwin Sundar. The duo has now claimed the top two places in all three races in the category, across two days.
Karthik Shankar was the best of the rest, finishing third in both races of the day.
