It has been a couple of years since he last raced professionally in Formula 3 so it will take a couple of races in Formula 2 to get back up to speed, but I believe he has the dedication and the focus to produce some good results during the year.”
Eurasia Motorsport Management is pleased to announce it has signed up Ajith Kumar in order to develop his professional racing career. Eurasia will manage all of Ajith’s motorsport activities including sourcing teams and events in addition to driver training.
