Young Achiever Narain
1996 saw him win the Formula Asia championship with a host of records and first in his kitty. He was the only Asian and also the only Indian to win Formula Asia International series.
2001 was a watershed year for Narain. He got behind the wheels of a Jaguar R1 car on June 14, thus becoming the first Indian to test a Formula One car. Finished fourth in the championship series with 5 podium finishes, having competed with 22 best drivers in the world representing 11 nations, some of them Ex-Formula 1 drivers and current Formula 1 test drivers. Creates history in the annals of Indian motor sports by becoming the first Indian to drive in F1 World Championship. Presently drives for Jordan F1 Grand Prix Team.
Now here’s a daring rookie with a motto dare to dream emblazoned across his yellow machine.
His aim is to win the F1 Race.
Best of luck Narain.
