Formula Renault 2.0: Daruvala set for Silverstone weekend

Rising Indian racer Jehan Daruvala is set to compete in a round of the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC here over the weekend.

This will be Jehan's second time at Silverstone. In the first season, the 17-year-old escaped a massive crash in the Eurocup series at the famous circuit. Jehan's car slid sideways into the gravel, flipped twice before landing upside down on the tyre wall. Luckily, he escaped the crash without any major injury.

“I’m quite excited to race here. I was quite competitive in my times there last year and am hoping to have a podium there this time after last years unfortunate crash.

The NEC this year in my opinion is as competitive as the Eurocup as the driver line up is practically the same,” said Daruvala.
