Kush Maini Wins in WSK Masters

Indian driver Kush Maini (racing with an Italian license) triumphed in the 60 mini category at the opening round of the WSK Masters series in Italy. Maini took two firsts and a second place in his heats, which put him on pole for the pre-final, in which he dropped to third at the line, but he then fought back to the front in the final as he took the win less than 2 hundredths ahead of Eliseo Martinez.

Sasakorn Chaimongkol from Thailand was the best of the Asian drivers in the Junior category with a 5th place in the final, and a great points haul for the WSK Masters series. Kush’s brother, Arjun Maini also impressed as he competed in the Junior category, finishing in the points in 14th place. Another Indian driver, Macau Asia-Pacific champion from 2012 Jehan Daruvala had impressive results in the heats with a win, two 2nd place finishes, and an 8th, but a DNF in the final after a top five in the double-header pre-finals ended his weekend on a low.
