Kush Maini finishes on the podium on debut

IANS  |  Monza (Italy) 

Debuting as a Rookie at the Eurocup Championship, Kush Maini finished third overall in the season opener at the historic circuit here.

Starting this season, the Eurocup now features cars that fall under the classification of the FIA's Regional F3 specifications.

Kush, starting from the second row of the grid in fourth moved up one place to complete his race on the podium at third. The J.K.Tyre backed made a great start, which saw him battle fellow competitor heading into the first corner.

While he was unable to overtake Lorandi, both men were able to capitalise on an incident that saw pole sitter spin on the exit of turn 1, in turn stalling his car.

With a out on track, the organisers were forced to deploy the for two laps thus bunching the field together.

A sluggish getaway on the restart of the race saw Kush drop down to fourth, however he fought back in no time reclaiming third in a matter of a few laps once again displaying his phenomenal overtaking ability, something that has become a bit of a trademark in his short career so far.

While Kush did manage to close the gap on Lorandi, he was unable to pull off a move on the Italian and ultimately had to settle for third.
