Japanese driver Yudai Jinkawa won Race two of the MRF 1600 race in Round 2 of the MMSC-FMSCI National Racing Championship ahead of Sudarshan Rao and championship leader Ashwin Sundar. 

Sundar, starting last, fought his way up to third place after a last lap move on Goutam Parekh. 

In front Jinkawa cruised to victory with Sudarshan not getting close enough to challenge him. 

Bangalore-based Sudarshan finished Round 2 in a total time of 16:21.557, little over four minutes behind the winner.

Vikash Anand drove well to finish in fourth place with 15-year-old Tarun Reddy finishing in fifth place after damaging his front wing with a crash with Sundar, who continues to lead the championship.
