Sarath Kumar, or Shankar Sarath Kumar was born on 15th December 1991 in Chennai, India. He is a professional motorcycle road racer and a national champion in the 125cc class. He currently competes in the Asia Dream Cup aboard a Honda CBR250R. Sarath began his racing career in 2008 with the Ten10 Racing Team now the WTR-Ten10 Racing team and competed in the 125cc class in the 2011 Moto GP.

Sponsored by Honda, Sarath became the first Indian rider to win podium position at the Asia Dream Cup. Honda Asia Dream Cup is an intense 6 round motorcycle racing championship where 18 racers from 10 countries across Asia (Australia, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Philippines, Sri Lanka and India) raced on specially modified CBR 250Rs in Asia’s best race tracks in Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and Qatar.

Honda nurtures Indian racers through Honda One Make race platform. Asia Dream Cup is the next step of Honda Motor Company, Japan to promote and develop motorsport skills amongst Asian riders. Here, HMSI has sponsored 3 budding racers from India to compete with Asia’s best racers and improve their racing skill too.

The final 6th round at Losial International Circuit, Qatar saw Sarath Kumar from Chennai finishing second in the CBR 250R. In his trademark aggressive racing style, Sarath thrilled audiences with his skillful maneuver and bursts of speed. Continuing his momentum, he edged out his nearest competitor Mori Syunya Mori from Japan by a wafer-thin margin of 0:034 seconds. Sarath timed just 02:32:560 minutes for his fastest of 9 laps.
