Yudai Jinkawa and Ashwin Sundar won the MRF 1600 races, respectively, in contrasting styles at the end of the fourth round of the MMSC-FMSCI National Racing Championship at the MMSC track.

S Narendran continued his unbeaten streak in the LGB F4 category, while Deepak Chinappa won his second race of the weekend in the LGB FS category. N Leelakrishnnan put in a flawless display to win the ITC category, while Feroz Khan continued his hold over the Indian Junior Touring Cars category by winning both races.

The first MRF 1600 race saw Tarun Reddy beat Jinkawa at the start before the safety car came out due to a collision between Advait Deodhar and Arjun Narendran. Both drivers retired on the spot. Reddy continued to lead till the last lap, when Jinkawa pulled off a brilliant move to get past the youngster. Reddy had to settle for second place and was pushed to the line by a charging Vikash Anand, who beat Ashwin Sundar to the third spot.

In the second MRF 1600 race, championship leader Ashwin won a chaotic race ahead of Vikash Anand and Deodhar. Ashwin, starting on pole position, lost out at the start to a rampaging Reddy. Ashwin reclaimed the top sport a few corners later and almost collided with Reddy on the next straight as he tried to re-pass him. Reddy, while trying to overtake Ashwin at the end of the straight, spun off bringing the safety car on to track. The race was red-flagged soon after as Kizuki Hirota failed to see the safety car board and crashed in to the back of Arjun Narendran on the start finish straight. At the re-start, Ashwin got away cleanly and pulled away from the rest of the pack to extend his championship lead. Vikash followed him across the finish line ahead of Advait.
