He may not have a string of victories to his name, but there’s no doubt former Formula One driver Narain Karthikeyan, India’s first in the sport, has some serious driving talent. In addition to F1, Karthikeyan has also competed in the now-defunct A1GP, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and even the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Now he’s starred in a video taken at Britain’s Silverstone race track where he is shown driving the latest Range Rover Sport and F-Type Coupe models from Jaguar Land Rover. Karthikeyan has close links with Jaguar Land Rover’s Indian parent company Tata, so it shouldn’t come as much as a surprise that he was chosen to tout the performance of the British brands, but it's clear he has a liking for both.

Aspects he’s especially appreciative of are the light construction, agile handling, strong braking performance and awesome sound. For our own impression of the cars, hit the links below.
