The weekend at Paul Ricard had three races scheduled. Race 1 on Saturday saw the drivers finish at P8, after moving as high as P3 but a drive-through penalty dropped them to P15 overall, and P8 in their category. Race 2 saw them take P5 in the Pro-Am category and P9 overall, completing 26 laps with a time of 1hr41m147s, which also turned out to be their best result so far. The third race on Sunday saw the drivers complete 27 laps with a time of 1hr02m49.379s, finishing at P6, while finishing tenth overall.

Speaking on his performance over the weekend, Akhil Rabindra said, "This track is not alien to me but it's one of those tracks that you probably need a lot of running at to have a grip on it. It's an awesome one because of its challenges and pacy nature. It was an interesting and nerve-wracking race till the end. I honestly think a podium was within our reach and hopefully, we'll grab that podium soon."
