Mixed results for Ghorpade in Formula Pilota
Shanghai, June 17 (IANS) India's Parth Ghorpade delivered mixed results in the two races here Sunday with a DNF (Did Not Finish) and fifth place behind compatriot Raj Bharath in the first round of the Formula Pilota Championship.
The 18-year old Ghorpade, who had finished second in the first race Saturday, collided with Bharath in the second outing and then managed a fifth after struck by electrical problem.
Ghorpade said: "Not a very good day for us after we struggled with an electric problem since the morning. In Race 2 Raj (Bharath) spun off at the end of the first lap and unfortunately collected me forcing me to retire.
"In Race 3, I lost a position at the start and was running third till I lost power on the straight. I was lucky to finish in fifth position as the longer the race the more positions I would have lost.
"I am satisfied with my pace over the weekend and look forward to the rest of the season as I feel we can challenge for more wins."
