Watch 6 year old Raheesh Khatri taking on a motocross track

Rahil claimed the record for being the youngest drag racer in the country last year, when he participated in the All India Biking Championships at the age of six. Now, he has also become the youngest drag racer in the country, again at the age of six. This is because he participated in a drag race at The Valley Run in Aamby Valley earlier this week.
