Double for Ghiretti and Reynolds

Allessandro Ghiretti  

Frenchman Allessandro Ghiretti notched a fine double besides a third-place finish in the Formula 4 South-East Asia championship, while Peter Reynolds (UK) won both the Caterham Asia Championship races at the MMRT here on Sunday.

Participating as a guest driver, India’s Vicky Chandhok, racing after 25 years, marked his one-off return by finishing second in both the Caterham races, behind Reynolds.

The day, however, belonged to Ghiretti, who, after winning the first race quite comfortably, starting from pole position, won the next outing from eighth on the reverse grid and followed it up with a third-place finish in Race 3, starting sixth. In both the Caterham Asia races, Reynolds was unstoppable, though he briefly conceded lead in the first to Chandhok but quickly recovered for a big win.
