Karun’s 20 years of experience working in motorsport has seen him take on races such as Le Mans 24 hours, GP2 series, FIA GT series and Formula E, and is one of only two Indian drivers to compete in Formula 1.

Karun has also made an impressive name for himself as a commentator and analyst for motorsport, working with 5 global broadcasters, of which he has now been with Sky Sports F1 as a presenter since 2019. Away from the cameras, Karun continues to have an integral role in motorsport, currently working with the Williams Formula 1 team on their heritage business and showcasing their Championship winning cars.

DTO shared their plans for Karun joining the team, “Karun will be overseeing the development of our products, bringing his expanse of automotive expertise to the team, and supporting our ambition to further evolve the exceptional motorsport experiences that we are
known for”.

Those familiar with DTO will know that it’s not just our cars, but their team that takes their events to the next level. Passionate about client experience, many of their guests will have the opportunity to spend time with Karun, at exclusive DTO Drive events that he’ll be hosting throughout the year. Not only will guests have the chance to pick his brain about all things Formula 1, but he will also work through data analysis sessions with guests and take them on the ultimate ‘hot lap’ at the end of the day.

This is an exciting chapter for DTO and we look forward to seeing what comes next.
