Default Kart and Race school progammes - Double A Racing

The racing season for 2006 looks promising. In this promising start we have a new venture and that new venture is Double A Racing. It’s a new team but with the same head and that head is none other than Akbar Ebrahim.

Double A Racing has a very powerful background to it. It primarily stands for Armaan & Akbar. Two very powerful individuals in the Indian and International racing arena. Akbar Ebrahim will be the Team Principal while Armaan Ebrahim, India’s hottest upcoming racing property will be available for guidance when he has a break from his International racing assignments.

PD Sathyanaraynan will head the engineering department for all the cars and he will have well trained mechanics at his disposal to service all the cars and drivers. The team is being kitted with all the latest tools and equipment to ensure that it delivers maximum satisfaction and performance to its drivers.

The following drivers have driven under the guidance of Akbar Ebrahim and their achievements are highlighted as under :

NARAIN KARTHEKEYAN: F1, World Series Nissan, F3, Vauxhall Lotus, Formula Ford, Formula Maruti.

PARTHIV SURESHWAREN : F3 Scholarship, Formula Asia, Formula Maruti.

KARUN CHANDHOK : A1 GP, World Series Renault, F3, Formula Asia, Formula Maruti.

ARMAAN EBRAHIM : A1 GP, Formula BMW, Formula LGB, Rotax Max Asia, Rotax World Finals, Formula BMW World Finals.

KAUSHEK HARITA : Formula Asia, Formula Maruti.

RAYOMAND BANAJEE : Formula LGB, Formula Maruti, Rotax World Finals.

AMEYA WALAVALKAR : Formula LGB, Asian Rotax Karting.

The above names are those who have gone on to win a National Championship or raced Internationally. The names of several others not mentioned in no way demeans their credentials.

The year 2005 has been a very good year for Indian Motorsport and for the 2 Indian drivers, namely Narain Karthekeyan and Armaan Ebrahim making it to the big league. There have been a record number of events conducted in India and by the looks of it 2006 looks even better.

From the year 2006 onwards all the Kart and Race car training programmes will be conducted by me under the banner of Double A Racing.

The Rotax Karting programmes will be in association with LG Sports in Coimbatore and the Racing programmes will be in Coimbatore as well as in Chennai.

The first Racing school programme will be conducted in Coimbatore at the Kari Motor Speedway on the 17th,18th & 19th of February 2006.The cars that will be used are the Formula LGB 1300cc racing cars. For those who are interested in this 3 dayprogrammes, please do mail Rasheed Khan at asbmanagement@yahoo.co.in and he will forward you all the details. The cost of this 3 day programme will be Rs 30000 payable by DD in advance to ASB Management & Consultancy Services Pvt Ltd. This does not include your stay, travel and food.

It includes the Coaching fee, FLGB race car, Theory and Practical on the race track, Fitness training and Mental Approach to Racing.

Mclaren, I'd suggest spending the money on a racing school such as this and then saving up for any builds or further trackdays. The amount you will learn in just 5 days will change the way you drive, both on and off the circuit.

So all my money is stuck up for that (buying a 2nd hand , hence the need for a build given the budget i have) .. Will keep in mind ur advise , and see what i can do .. Thanks once again ..
