Double podium for Armaan in Thailand

India’s Armaan Ebrahim along with Dilantha Malagamuwa of Sri Lanka notched up a fine double podium finish in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia series here this weekend.

In the double header, Armaan and Malagamuwa, driving team Dilantha Racing, had finished third in the first race on Saturday and went one better on Sunday with a second place finish. Armaan had qualified second for the first race, just a 10th of a second off the pole position while Dilantha, suffering from a stomach indisposition, was placed sixth for the second outing.

Armaan was off to a fine start and went into the lead exiting Turn-1 and maintained the one-second advantage till he pitted for Dilantha to take over. 

Dilantha, however, lost one spot and eventually finished third which was creditable considering that the Sri Lankan was on drips going into the weekend due to food poisoning.Reflecting on his weekend, Armaan said, “We were a bit unfortunate in the first race after I came in when in the lead as Dilantha had not fully recovered from food poisoning that had him on the drips. Considering this, we were happy to finish second.”
