Earlier in the day, first race of the LGB Formula 4 category saw Vishnu, who already led the Championship table, manage to hold on to his lead as his closest contender Sandeep Kumar could not finish the race. The highlight of the race, however, was the inspired show put on by Diljith T S who fought back and managed to stave off Mira Erda to finish second. This meant that the Championship decider race of the season was bound to go down to the wire.

Even the JK Tyre presents Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup promised to live up the day with the top two riders having just seven points with them for the Championship title.
