Coimbatore, April 13 (ANI): Seven-year-old Karoon Murthy of Coimbatore is busy training himself to participate in the World Pocket Bike Super Series to be held in Malyasia.
Murthy, a standard third student, is eager to break all speed records to be a Motor GP Champion.
The concept of Pocket Bikes, a miniature version of a Grand Prix (GP) bike, took off in Japan in the 1950s.
"I am studying in standard three and want to become a Motor GP champion. I plan to go Germany for racing next year and for this I am practicing here in this circuit. I have been driving motorbike for the past four years and now I ride the bike at a speed of 120 kmp. My ambition is to become a Motor G P Champion," said Karoon Murthy, the little motor racer.
He wants to break the speed barrier but the poor bikes that he has now cannot take his enthusiasm. He thinks with the right bike he can easily blast the 150 kmph barrier!
He has plans to take part in the World Pocket Bike Super Series to be held at Malaysia and in the Red Bull Moto GP-mini motor GP-Germany, representing Red bull Motor GP Rookies Team.
Within a span of four years, Murthy has won accolades from all around. He won the Rolon Championship in Coimbatore in 2008 and is known among many as the first stunting kid of India.
Karoon Murthy is presently busy training at the Irungattukottai track in Sriperumbudur in Coimbatore on his 45-kg pocket bike under the watchful eyes of his father.
Murthy is the son of former national bike racing champion Kaushk Murthy. By Jehova G (ANI)
