New Delhi, August 4 : India's formula one driver Narain Karthikeyan unveiled the EVO AE 1 kart at the launch function of 'Amaron Karting Challenge 2008' in Chennai today, and he hopes for more consistent performance this year to help bring Team India to the top six by winning more races.
"The way it is going, they seem to get hooked on to it and you know this is how new budding talent gets introduced to the sport. Hopefully, they can make this their profession and it is just the beginning. It is just the kindergarten of motor sports karting and you learn the entire race crafts here," said Narain.
"Based on the formula one car from 2005, we are hoping that India will do much better than last year. Last year, I had an injury too. So we missed out on few points. But the plan is to be more consistent, bring it into the top six, win more than two races, more podiums and I think in a week or two, we will reveal the new structure of the Indian team," added Narain.
'Amaron Karting Challenge 2008', sponsored by Amaron Raja, one of the leading battery manufacturing companies of the country, will be held across seven cities in the country.
The competition set to start on August 23, will see the participation of kids in the age group of 12-16.
Karthikeyan, who had won the season-ending A1GP in United Kingdom on May 4th this year, said his future plan right now was to participate in Grand Prix (A1GP).
