The 22-year-old veteran of Formula BMW Pacific and JK Racing Asia Series is competing in only his second event this year after being sidelined by financial issues.

In the last month, Young has secured sponsorship from Singapore lifestyle brand Ku De Ta which allowed him to compete in the first two races in the series on October 26 at the Buddh International Circuit in New Delhi, India. He placed a very respectable 15th and 12th out of a field of 18 racers, many of whom have previously competed in F2, GP2, and GP3.

By the end of the weekend, Dylan will have raced four out of the ten races that make up the series, played out over four weekends, which conclude in Chennai in early February.

The races will take place on November 30 to December 2 in New Delhi and will be broadcast live on ESPN Star Sports.
