Jehan Daruvala races to second victory at Toyota Racing Series


Promising Indian racer Jehan Daruvala stormed to his second consecutive victory in the Toyota Racing Series here today.

The Indian teenager recorded the fastest lap of the race and won ahead of former world karting champion, Lando Norris of the United Kingdom.

Jehan, high on confidence after his maiden victory the previous weekend, seemed much more comfortable with the car at the Teretonga Park Raceway, famous for being the world s southernmost racing circuit.

Jehan improved through the practice sessions and was on top of the time sheets in the final practice.

Qualifying 1 was extremely close between Jehan and Norris, with the latter winning pole position in a time of 53.325 seconds. Jehan was a mere 0.04 seconds behind him while Antoni Ptak of Poland was third.

The Mumbai boy made one of his best starts so far, as the lights went out under damp conditions. He overtook Lando into the first corner and managed to hold the lead for Lap 1.

Norris was on a charge however, he overtook Jehan at the beginning of the second lap.

Soon the safety car came out and at the restart, Jehan just about managed to hold off local racer Brendon Leitch.
