Mumbai Falcons announce lineup for 2022 Formula 4 UAE Championship
Mumbai Falcons Racing Limited is all set to venture into the 2022 Formula 4 UAE Championship, which is scheduled to begin from January 20, 2022. The racing team comes off the back of a successful 2021 season of the Formula 3 Asian Championship with three wins, and now it is ready to dip their toes into the UAE leg of Formula 4 with its two-driver lineup consisting of Sohil Shah and Yash Aradhya.
A winner of two national championships, ten races and twenty-seven podiums, Sohil Shah is all set to participate in what will be his first international race championship. He has also participated in the Rotax Karting Championship back in 2017.
Yash Aradhya, whose racing career began back in 2012 as a nine-year old, will be driving the second car alongside Sohil Shah. Yash has won 13 National and Club championships with 65 race wins, and became the first person in motorsports under the age of 18 to receive the ‘Pradhan Manthri Rashtriya Bal Shaktha Purashkar,’
Moid Tungekar, CEO, Mumbai Falcons Racing Limited, said "We are delighted to enter our first Formula 4 UAE Championship season. The success we achieved last year in Formula Regional Asian Championship was a great start and definitely helped the growth of India's motorsports movement, which is essential to our programme. We are proud to field drivers from India, and we are looking forward to working with XCEL Motorsport. We cannot wait for the season to start and while we expect it to be quite challenging with this year’s large championship grid. We are sure to experience some fantastic competition.”
