Sailesh Bolisetti started eight on the grid and managed to climb up two
positions to finish sixth in the end.
Singh, winner of Race 2 commented, “Starting sixth on the grid was never going
to be easy. I wanted to stay out of any trouble at the start and so kept it
cool and came out clean in the first few laps. After the race restart, I
started making my moves and finally came up on the top by mid-race. From there
onwards, I kept my concentration high and ensured I maintained adequate lead to
take the chequered flag. I am really happy to have scored two podiums at the
opening round of the Vento Cup 2015 and I am looking forward to coming back to
Coimbatore for more action next month.”
Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India said “We have kicked off an exciting
chapter of Volkswagen Motorsport in India with the Vento Cup 2015. The two
races over the weekend saw a lot of action, especially in the Race 2 where the
drivers got a little more aggressive adding flavour to the weekend. Our team
has put together a set of top performing cars for the season. I am glad to see
that the Vento Cup race cars held it strong despite the extremely aggressive driving
and delivered 100% reliability.”

Kari Motor Speedway before heading to Round 3 and 4 at the Buddh International
