The last round was especially great with tricky conditions making it tough for the drivers and having three different winners over the weekend. With just 12 points between the top three drivers, I can already say we have had an extremely successful season. This is the level of competition that makes things exciting and we are delighted to have put together this platform for the Indian racing talent." He added, "We have to remember though that it's not over till it's over. The last three races over the weekend will surely have a lot more to offer and keep us on the edge of our seats and I would like to wish each one of our competitors all the best!"
Three races will be held the coming weekend to decide this year's winners.
