Sarath Kumar felicitated by Mahindra Racing for scoring points in Italian championship
Sarath Kumar, the twenty year old Indian rider who scored his first international points in the Italian championship during the second round in Imola was felicitated by Mahindra Racing at a ceremony in Chennai. In their maiden entry into the Italian championship, team Mahindra Racing have won both the races so far in the eight-round competition. Sarath finished seventh in the second race to score nine points after a technical issue forced him into early retirement in the first race. The third round of the Italian championship will be held on April 29 at the Monza circuit.
Sarath said, This is a moment of great pride for me as the Italian championship is one of the most competitive breeding grounds for emerging talent on the racing circuit. I would like to express my gratitude to the Mahindra Group for all their support and encouragement and I look forward to delivering a strong performance in future races.
Mufaddal Choonia, chief operating officer, Mahindra Racing said, We are delighted by Sarath's performance at Imola and are confident that he will only get better. Mahindra Racing sees the Italian championship as an opportunity to nurture and grow rising Indian talent like Sarath. Riding in a championship with such high standards is a great opportunity for him to hone his skills and develop into a world-class rider.
