Yash Aradhya to represent India

Bengaluru teenage driver Yash Aradhya has been nominated to represent India in the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy, which will be held across Europe later this year.

Yash, 13, will compete against racers from across the world. The Bishop Cotton Boys’ School student was nominated as he fits the age criteria, and by virtue of winning the JK Tyre-FMSCI national karting championship in 2014.

Yash thanked his mentor Akbar Ebrahim, team Meco Racing and his sponsors. “I would say that this year has been the best of my life,” he said.
