In the first round of the race was observed disciplined driving from all the racers even the new entrants manage a clean start. Both the races started under different circumstances with the first race on the slicks while the next one with wet tyres. Already participated in the Vento Cup 2015 season, Ishaan and Karminder were familiar with the car, circuit and conditions, but were uncertain of the performance of the wet tyres from the tyre partners MRF.

Ishaan Dodhiwala started from pole position in Race 1 and retained his position to take his first-ever victory. Karminder Pal Singh, who started third on the grid finished second, followed by Keith Dsouza in third position. The second race started with a lot of confusion due to changing weather conditions. The reverse grid position for Race 2 directed Ishaan Dodhiwala to start eighth while second position finisher Karminder Pal Singh started seventh. It was an aggressive start by both and some  amazing moves in the initial laps put Karminder in the lead and Ishaan in second position. Aditya Pawar, having started fifth on the grid, finished third on the podium.

Speaking on this, Sirish Vissa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India.said, “The first round of the championship was a perfect example of matured driving from the young drivers with a clean race. They also adapted to the changing conditions very well. It is also good to witness the young racers implement their learnings so early in the championship. A tie at the top of the table promises an exciting season ahead of us.”
