Maiden Auto GP win for Narain

Maiden Auto GP win for Narain

India’s top driver Narain Karthikeyan recorded his maiden Auto GP victory after leader Kevin Giovesi was given a one-minute post race penalty at the Silverstone Circuit here on Saturday.

Ghinzai Motosport’s Giovesi was penalised for pitting on lap 14, the last lap of race one in round four of the series.

The Auto GP regulations allow the drivers to take their mandatory pitstops only between lap three and penultimate lap.  Therefore, Karthikeyan was elevated to the top of the podium.

It was an ideal start for the former Formula 1 driver with his new team, Super Nova, who were champions in the 2012 Auto GP season.
