Paul of Grade 8 represented India in the European Championship this summer. The CIK-FIA Academy Trophy 2015 is a 3 round event held at tracks around Europe. This year it was held at Zuera Spain, Genk Belgium and Le Mans France. Selection to the championship is through nomination by the Motor Sport governing body of each country. India’s body, the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India normally sends only one. This year in recognition of Paul’s talent they sent him as the 2nd nominee. In a grid of 51 experienced drivers, some of the best in the world, Paul had a best finish of 13 in his heats, with the fastest time within 9/10th of the top driver. This impressed everyone so much that it earned him the nickname Lionissimo (like a little lion) from the Italians. We expect great things from Paul at Belgium.
