This year, Indian Sarath Kumar made us all proud by scoring a podium position. In the final round that took place at the Losial International Circut at Qatar, the 22 year-old Chennai rider finished second, with a fastest lap timing of 2.32.56.

Sarath and his fellow Indian riders, Sumit Lucas Toppo (finished 8th overall in the championship) and Arunagiri Prabhu (17th in the championship table) have risen to the Honda Asia Dream Cup through their strong performance in the local Honda One Make races that the Japanese company organizes to promote and find new talent in the country.
