Brayan Perera of Sri Lanka struck a double title and finished on top of the championship table in the introductory Formula Junior Racing Series, promoted by Meco Motor sports, at the Kari Motor Speedway circuit in Chettipalayam, in Coimbatore on Sunday.
Brayan had called the shots by winning three of the five races in the Formula LGB1300 category in the opening round at the same venue last month.
But, this time around, Ashwin Datta of Chennai had the Coimbatore circuit at his mercy.
The Chennai youngster beat the searing heat and the stiff competition to score a double as well but it was Brayan who earned a complete sponsorship ticket from Meco Racing for the forthcoming 19th JK Tyre national racing championship.
The other race of the day in the FLGB1300 was won by Alex Bora of Assam.
