Its actually Parthiv Sureswaran.
He's real lucky to be the driver-2 or I would have assassinated him myself. He used to get lapped by the front runners very easily(When NK wasn't driving A1).

All Formula cars are open wheelers,man.
And what exactly is Akhil Kushlani participating abroad that he's listed with NK.
I know he drove the Formula Rolon Chevrolet Championship here since I was at the tracks yesterday.
