Azerbaijan's promising young Formula 3 driver Gulhuseyn Abdullayev, also known as Quka, continues his success in an international arena.

The main objective of the competition FG1000 is to provide opportunities for young pilots to gain the necessary experience in order to prepare them for higher-level races.

Last year Gulhuseyn took the first place in the RMC DD 2 karting race in Turkey. He also performed at the "Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals" world karting championships, which was held in New Orleans (USA), and for the first time raised the Azerbaijani flag at such a prestigious international championship.
