MLG Racing’s Ruhaan Alva
Bangalore: India's Ruhaan Alva, representing MLG Racing team, drove brilliantly to overtake two front-runners on the last lap and score a fine win in the Easykart Championship in Lonato, Italy on Sunday.
Ruhaan, the 10-year old schoolboy from Bangalore, had won the Mini 60 class race in the first round last month in Castelletto, Italy, but decided to move to the more competitive Easykart 60 category. The Indian youngster did extremely well to qualify for pole position in a field of 27 racers, and in the final, kept his cool on the last lap while storming from third to first in a tight finish where less than a second separated the top three. Going into the last lap, he was placed third behind Patrese Lorenzo of Italy and Czech Adam Kowalski, but overtook both to clinch victory that put him fourth in the Championship.
