Jehan Daruvala was crowned the champion at the CIK FIA KF3 Asia Pacific karting world championship in Macau on Sunday. Racing for Rayo Racing, 14-year-old Daruvala achieved the highest ever honour by an Indian racing driver in karting.
Daruvala earlier competed in the British karting championship this year as part of the Sahara Force India driver academy where he dominated the final round.
"This is my biggest victory so far. It feels good to have proved myself at one of the biggest events in World Karting. Everyone at the Sahara Force India Academy has been instrumental in my performance. I would also like to thank Team Rayo Racing for their effort this weekend." Said Jehan.
Rayo Racing, managed by former national karting champion Rayomand Banajee, also fielded reigning national karting champion Ameya Bafna in the Macau Rotax Cup, which along with the Asia Pacific race, was a support event for the FIA karting world championship final.
Bafna finished fourth after briefly leading the race. The top four drivers were covered by just four seconds.
