The MSport driver had his work cut out for himself at the final round of the 26th edition of JK Tyre NRC

The last round of the LGB Formula 4 championship this year was a tough challenge for Ruhaan Alva, who drives for the MSport team. But he still managed to come forth as the champion at the Kari Motor Speedway in Chettipalayam, Tamil Nadu.

Going into the final round of the championship, Alva had a 20-point lead over Arya Singh of Dark Don Racing. Singh’s points were docked after the penultimate race, during a post-event scrutiny due to a technical infringement. Singh and his team were successful in getting the points back after they appealed to the Indian Motor Sports Appeal Court (IMSAC). Drivers from Momentum Motorsport were also able to appeal and win back the points they lost in the penultimate round.

As Arya Singh got his points back, the points gap between him and Alva decreased, putting pressure on the MSport driver. But this did not deter him as he shot up to the second place finish, after starting the race from the eighth position. He had a close battle with Diljith of Dark Don for the podium position. He won the championship by scoring a grand total of 82 points. Ex-F1 driver Narain Karthikeyan was also present at the felicitation ceremony.

Arya Singh was tied for second place in the championship along with his teammate, Tijil Rao, both scoring 71 points total. Tijil Rao won the final race of the championship.

In the JK Tyre Novice Cup, Arjun Nair came out on top as the champion, scoring 82 points. Nair’s Momentum Motorsports teammate Neythan McPherson scored 53 points to get the second position in the championship, while Joel Joseph of DTS Racing came in third, scoring 44 points.
