The 24-year-old Indian driver performed brilliantly in the race.

The only Asian to seal a spot in the Aston Martin Racing Driver Academy earlier this year, Akhil Rabindra helped AGS Events earn a ninth-place finish in the penultimate race of the French FFSA GT Championship.

The Indian driver participated in the Pro-Am category at the 3.8 km long Paul Ricard Circuit in France.

The AGS Event-duo comprising of Gilles Vannelet and Aston Martin Academy driver Akhil Rabindra were behind the wheels of No. 69 Aston Martin Vantage AMR on Saturday.

After the race, Akhil Rabindra commented, “There are plenty of opportunities for us to improve and we’re on an upward spiral mode right now. It’ll be an acid test for us on Sunday and we’re up for it.”

Thirty cars competed for the pole position at the final of the Circuit Paul Ricard track in the FFSA French Championship on this weekend. Rabindra and his teammate Vannelet, who drove an Aston Martin Vantage AMR, clocked 1:32:792 minutes and qualified P6 in Q1. Rabindra continued his excellent form and finished in 1:32:571 minutes to qualify at P13 in Q2.
