An entertaining Race 1 at Spa-Francorchamps sees Zachary David take a maiden podium while Nikhil Bohra takes his first points of the season. Asian Motorsport reviews Saturday’s action.

Qualifying was held in the morning and was headlined by a wet track, giving the drivers a tough challenge at hand and Philippines’ Zachary David put on a good lap to qualify fifth, while fellow asians Nikhil Bohra, Nandhavud Bhirombhakdi, Alex Sawer, Kanato Le and Ruiqi Liu qualified 10th, 19th, 25th, 28th and 29th respectively
Zachary David took advantage of the chaotic start to put himself in a position to fight for the win against Trident’s Roman Bilinski, Prema’s Rafael Camara and RPM’s Noah Stromsted and while he did attempt to take the lead away from the Trident he wasn’t able to make his moves work, getting passed by the RPM and Prema not long after.
While the Filipino finished fourth on track, he was promoted to third after Stromsted recieved a penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage. Nikhil Bohra finished 8th on track but was demoted to 10th for the same reason.
Ruiqi Liu gained eleven positions to finish 18th, Kanato Le gained eight to finish 20th, Alex Sawer gained one to finish 24th and Nandhavud Bhirombhakdi endured a difficult race, finishing down in 26th.
