Kush Maini: Building on a racing legacy

At just 16 years old, Kush Maini is already making big waves in European racing circuits. Will he have enough to take his talents to the highest level?

Growing up watching your dad, a former Formula 3 racer and your elder brother, who is also a racer, the desire to become a racer comes naturally to you. Like his father, Gautam Maini and his brother, Arjun Maini before him, Kush Maini launched himself into racing.

One could argue that in today’s world, family tradition has taken a backseat with the younger generations looking to excel on their own. But when it comes to a racing family, perhaps it's in the blood. 16-year-old Kush’s journey kicked off in 2007, at the tender age of seven, when he started karting. This is probably the right age to push towards a career in motorsport.

It was bold choice at such a young age, especially in India where so many kids can’t decide on their future, even during their teenage years. But of course, family support played a part for Kush to eventually go this way.
