Akbar Ebrahim is an Indian motorsport legend. A former Formula 3 champion; he also has 5 national championships to his credit, 3 of which were won in a row. Akbar was the first Indian to race in international circuits, representing India at the Formula Asia Championship, Formula Ford Festival, British Formula 3 and British Formula 2 Championships.
After his active racing years, Akbar has dedicated his time to the development of motorsports in India, working tirelessly to bring about considerable change in the scene. His determined efforts are largely responsible for the sport’s growing popularity in India. Akbar is widely recognized and is one of the most respected figures, not just among the motorsports fraternity but the general public.
Akbar is currently involved in training and shaping some of the finest racing talents. He has been instrumental in influencing the careers of Narain Karthikeyan (the first Formula 1 motor racing driver from India), Karun Chandhok (one of the only two Indian racers to participate in the Formula 1 series) and Armaan Ebrahim,( Formula 2, Indy Lites and the FIA GT 1 Series,) , who have collectively taken Indian racing to great heights.
Armaan Ebrahim is one of the most talented drivers to graduate from Meco Motorsports. After having captured every possible racing title in India he made quick strides into the international arena doing exceptionally well there too. He started young and with a solid base in training covered ground in good time. At 24 he is the hottest Indian property at international circuits. He has already raced in some of the best racing events in the world like Indy Lights USA, Formula 2, FIA GT1 World Series, etc., and is the first racer from Asia to win a podium in F2.
With his passion, resilience and desire to win every time he steps on to the track, he exemplifies MMS’s credo: winning is not just in performance, it is in the attitude. Armaan is thus the perfect brand ambassador for MMS.
