Donington LMP3 Cup: Podium for Chandhok in Race 1

Former Indian F1 driver Karun Chandhok secured a podium finish in the opening LMP3 Cup race at Donington Park on Saturday.

Chandhok, who has 11 grand prix starts between 2010-11  to his name, made his first race appearance since last year’s ELMS round in Austria.

The 33-year-old was driving alongside experienced GT racer Steve Tandy at T-Sport, the Brackley-based outfit with which Chandhok traces his ties since his Formula 3 days.

After showing promising pace in practice, the Indo-British duo endured a difficult qualifying session, resigning them to ninth on the grid.

However, the two drivers made up for their poor grid slot, with Tandy getting off to a good start in the one-hour race.

Chandhok carried the good work in the second stint and was running in fourth place in the closing stages of the race when United Autosport's Matt Bell suffered a puncture, promoting him and Tandy to the final spot on the podium.

Meanwhile, Colin Noble and Alasdair McCaig took home a comfortable win for Team West Tec, with Jason Rishover and former F3 driver Jamie Spence finishing eight seconds adrift in second place.
