Year 10 Haileyburian Jehan Daruvala is off to India this week to pick up a very special award – he is India Motorsport Personality of the Year 2014. The shortlist includes adults so this is a terrific achievement and is recognition of all of his hard work, balancing school work with a busy racing schedule with the support of his family and the College.
Jehan has emerged from Sahara Force India’s karting programme as a huge talent and has been tipped to be a top-class Formula One driver of the future. He won the Asia Pacific Karting Championship in 2012 and became the first-ever Indian to win the British KF3 Championship in 2013.
