Indian motorsport racing driver, Aditya Patel, finishes fifth in the race two of the fourth round of the Audi R8 LMS Cup in Malaysia. Although he couldn’t finish among top three, but the Indian driver put in an impressive performance all along the race before finishing fifth.

Aditya started from fourth position in the first race, and found himself in the path of a spinning Marchee Lee while fighting for the lead on turn two of the first lap. Unfortunately he had to retire with some damage to his car from Lee’s spinning car. Because of this Aditya had to start last for the second race as he could not record a lap time in the race one. After starting last on the grid for race two, he fought hard to come up to fifth position, and he finished right behind the pole sitter Alex Yoong, who finished at fourth position. Marchee Lee from Hong Kong won the race.

After the end of the race, Aditya was saying, “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.”
