Also finishing on top of the podium were Rithwik Thomas (Race Concepts) in the Super Stock class, Diljith TS (DTS Racing) in the MRF Saloon Car Championship (Toyota Etios), and Tijil Rao (Momentum Motorsport) as well as Mohamed Ryan (M Sport) in the Formula LGB 1300 category that had two races. A couple of spells of rains led to a few delays, but the proceedings did not affect the competitive nature of the races. Pole-sitter Tijil led a 1-2 for Momentum Motorsport after holding off teammate Chirag Ghorpade. Diljith (DTS Racing) completed the podium. In the second Formula LGB 1300 race, Ryan won handily from reverse grid start, coming ahead of Karthik Krishna (Hasten Performance) and Viswas Vijayaraj (DTS Racing).
In the Indian Touring Cars class, Balu swept to his third consecutive win in the championship following a double in the opening round in February.
Finishing behind Balu were two FB Motorsport teammates Keith D’Souza and Dhruv Mohite. However, both of them could not come anywhere near the Coimbatore ace. The saloon car race grid comprised two other classes, the Super Stock, which was won by Rithwik for his third success in a row, and the MRF Saloon Car Championship (Toyota Etios), where Diljith topped without much ado.
