Race 3 of the Euro JK Cup 2018 saw Ashwin Datta storm to the front of the pack but an action packed battle followed as Nayan Chatterjee and Karthik Tharani went all out to chase down Datta on the leader board. But as the race progressed to its end, Datta who had by then cemented his dominance for the race managed a 0.545 second lead over Chatterjee. But Karthik Tharani fell behind by quite a margin at 4.980 seconds. This time around Sudarshan Rao Karwal dropped all the way to the end of the ranks while Mira Erda raked in a DNF for the race.

The final Euro JK 2018 race though saw a turn of events as Sri Lankan driver Brayan Perera who had finished 5th in the previous race, took the top spot on the podium owing to Nirmal Uma Shankar’s stalled start on the reverse grid. The start also favoured Yash Aradhya who tried to pace up to Perera was kept in check as Karthik Tharani put the pressure on in a battle that lasted for the most part of the race.
