Chennai: Amateur racing driver Gautam Singhania will represent India in the 2014 Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Coppa Shell to be held at Silverstone Circuit between September 12 to 14.
The Coppa Shell is a series for "amateur gentleman drivers" in the one-make racing series organised by Ferrari, and Singhania will be competing in a Ferrari 458.
"It will be a proud moment as an Indian to represent the country at Silverstone. I am looking forward to a great race ahead, as one can never get tired of burning rubber in a Ferrari," Singhania said.
A racing enthusiast since his college days, Singhania, who is the Chairman and Managing Director of Raymond Group, has had some impressive results in international competition this season.
In July, Singhania came second in the opening race of the Britcar Championship at Oulton Park, two months after winning both races in the opening round of the 2014 Pirelli Ferrari Open held at Brands Hatch.
