Mira, who began her journey as one of the youngest in national karting, had been competing in LGB Formula 4 till last year. She proved herself to be equal to bigger and stronger boys there too, winning the Formula 4 Rookie Champion of the Year during the annual FMSCI awards. 

“Ever since I started racing as a 9-year-old I have been dreaming of becoming a Formula 1 racer,” Mira said. Interestingly, Mira who is preparing for her 12th class boards, will have a packed season as she plans to not only race in the National Championship but also in national rallies and international karting competitions. 

Mira has already participated in about 75 races both at the national and the international level.
