New Delhi : Vadodara’s young racer Mira Erda will become the first Indian female driver to compete in one of the highest classes of Formula Racing in the country after signing up for the Euro JK series in the upcoming JK Tyre- FMSCI National Racing Championship.

Mira, who began her journey as one of the youngest in national karting, had been competing in LGB Formula 4 till last year. She proved herself to be equal to bigger and stronger boys there too, winning the Formula 4 Rookie Champion of the Year during the annual FMSCI awards.

By signing up at just 17 for JK Euro, which features the BMW FB02 car, she will be among the youngest Indian drivers to race at this level.

“Ever since I started racing I have been dreaming of becoming a Formula 1 racer,” Mira said, on her way back from school. “I want to thank JK Tyres and FMSCI for this wonderful opportunity as this is one huge jump forward towards realising my dream,” she added.
