Reigning Asian Karting Champion (in the Micro Max Category) and double Indian National Karting Champion, Shahan Ali Mohsin, put up quite a fight in the Rotax Grand Festival 2017, to take a fourth place-finish. This, after he had a tough fight in the pre-finals, which ended with him finishing on the podium.
We were the first finisher (sic) with the long chassis setup with 1-2-3 place finishers driving a short chassis. For sure there was some advantage for the short chassis in the quick chicanes where a fast direction change was needed; so classifying them together may have been slightly unfair. Any case, it is done and dusted so we're already looking forward to our next outing now", he added.
Shahan is supported by "AFMEC, Farida Group, Alina Leather and Sakura Air Conditioners.
