Born in Bangalore, India, Dion’s racing career began at the young age of 9 with a visit to a Singaporean kart track, inspired by watching Formula 1 stars such as Lewis Hamilton on TV.
Dion quickly discovered a natural talent for driving in the Cadet (Mini 60) and Mini ROK categories of karting, and with the support of his family, moved to London to pursue his dream of becoming a Formula 1 driver himself.
In 2017, Dion took two podiums on his way to 4th overall in ROK Cup Singapore. Dion also competed in the X30 South East Asia Championship finishing 3rd in Round 3, before fighting in the top 10 of the X30 International Finals to round out the season.
Now 13, Dion enters his second year of competing in World Championship Karting events for Ricky Flynn Motorsport. Success in the OK-Junior class takes Dion one step closer to achieving his dream of being the first driver from India to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Dion is known for his signature phrase "lovely jubbly!", and took his maiden OK-Junior race win at Round 1 of the FIA Karting European Championships.
