A student of St. Mary’s ICSE School (Mumbai) and a resident of Godrej Baug, Hoshmand’s weekend began with an excellent performance in the qualifying round. Hoshmand had a good start in Race 1, before he misjudged a wet piece of track to spin out from the lead, however, he recovered well, finishing second. With Race 2 being the reverse grid race, Hoshmand started up from second last and went on to win the race. Race 3 saw Hoshmand start on pole once again, but unfortunately being slightly heavier, he finished in second place. Hoshmand finished the weekend with a tally of 26 points, to finish Runners-Up behind Ranvir on 28 points.

Speaking to Parsi Times, Hoshmand said, “I enjoyed racing on the IndiKarting Pune track. I made a mistake while leading in the first race and that cost me the overall victory. I enjoyed overtaking and winning the second race. I have to work hard and make sure that I do not make mistakes in the future and I am learning all the time. I really want to thank my sponsors and all those who are supporting me and specially my parents, for all their support.”
