    Rajini, who had finished second behind Jagan Kumar of TVS Racing in the first race on Saturday, left nothing to chance when opportunity presented itself. Jagan suffered a puncture at the end of the second lap when in the lead and Rajini seized the opportunity to score a handsome win ahead of Harry Sylvester (TVS Racing). Sarath Kumar (Ten10 Racing) completed the podium and Jagan completed the remainder of the six-lap race despite the punctured tyre.

    Due to the huge popularity of the Gixxer Cup and the overwhelming number of applicants, the novice category had to be split into two separate batches during the qualifying round to determine the final grid of the top 20 riders.

    The Open races were equally thrilling; the first race had a group of 4 leading riders who swapped places in the fight for the podium, chased to the finish by another group of 7 riders, who battled among themselves to get the lead positions. The second race upped the action with more overtakes than the mind could keep track of.



    Chennai also welcomed the only female racer - Swetha - to the Gixxer Cup series, showing the new series popularity and appeal for all motorcycle racers in India.

    The star winners of the Suzuki Gixxer Cup Novice and Open categories were:
