Motorsports: Armaan, Dilantha top in Japan

Fuji, June 21 (IANS) JK Tyre’s Armaan Ebrahim along with Sri Lankan teammate Dilantha Malagam scored a dominating win in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series here on Sunday.

Starting fifth on the grid after a heavy downpour, Armaan took the start and steadily moved up on a wet track. Twenty minutes into the race, Armaan took the lead after passing Yudai Uchida from Japan and Davide Rizzo from Italy and built a sizeable lead before handing over the car to Dilantha who drove well and kept the lead to finally take the chequered flag.

In Race 1 on Saturday, Armaan had a big setback during the pit stop when the wheel nut got jammed during the tyre change which put them back to 12th place from running in third place. The pair fought back strongly to pass seven cars and finish fifth overall and second in Class.

Armaan said: “It’s great to take a win and though I have been getting several podiums in the last couple of years an overall first place was always eluding me.”
