Chandhok finishes third

Indian racing ace Karun Chandhok got his 2014 season off to a brilliant start as he fought off mechanical issues to finish third in the SP2 class victory at the Dubai 24hours, Asia’s leading Endurance race.

Chandhok, competing in race for the second time in his career, drove for the Nissan GT Academy Team RJN.

Chandhok, driving the No 126 Nissan 370Z Nismo joined Nissan GT Academy winners James Moffat, Tor Graves and Ashley Oldfield in the race.

The No. 126 car was fighting with the RJN sister car for the win when the team suffered issues, costing them more than 2 hours in the pits.  Chandhok was happy to start the season with a podium finish. “This is a great start to the year for me and I would like to thank the Nissan GT Academy Team RJN for this opportunity. It was a crazy race and at one point we looked fast enough.”
