Now the wait seems to be over with the rise of young speed sensation Nayan Chatterjee.
The 18-year-old, who is ranked number two in the Asia Max Championship, will be trained under the watchful eyes of Akbar Ebrahim after joining Meco Motorsports for a period of three years.
Chatterjee’s association with Meco comes just after his stupendous success in the KRS-KKS Asia Rotax Max challenge 2016 held over April 30-May 1 in Malaysia, where he finished second.
