Le Castellet (France), July 2: While India’s Aditya Patel, the guest driver, finished eighth and sixth, it was his Euro International team-mate Jeffri Nabil of Malaysia who dominated the weekend’s double-header with two podium finishes, including a win, in the JK Racing Asia Series at the Paul Ricard Circuit here.
Championship leader Nabil won the fifth round race Saturday and finished second behind compatriot Afiq Ikhwan Yazid of Team Meritus in the sixth round Sunday.
On Sunday, Patel benefited when Hiqmar Danial Hidzir suffered a puncture that helped the Indian to gain a spot to sixth which he maintained till the finish.
In the previous round Saturday, Patel had made places to come in eighth despite lack of track time after making the switch from saloon cars to single seaters.
The JK Racing Asia Series will continue with Rounds 7 and 8 at the famous Spa Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium July 27-29.
