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 on September 6, 2015.
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”.
