The youngest ever World and European Karting Champion, Enaam Ahmed is set to compete in the 2016 BRDC F4 Championship, having just signed with Douglas Motorsport.
The 16 year old London based driver had a season of two halves in 2015 competing in the MSA Formula, and also in selected rounds of the NEZ SMP F4 Championship. Ahmed was crowned Rookie champion in MSA Formula after taking his first overall win at the season finale at Brands Hatch.
The multiple Karting Champion also saw huge success in the NEZ F4 championship by taking 5 victories across the selected rounds, along with three poles, and three fastest laps!
Ahmed’s signing for Douglas Motorsport sees the talented young Brit pairing up with 19 year old Australian of Thomas Randle, who finished runner up in the Australian F4 championship in 2015.
Enaam Ahmed, “We have had a couple of tests with different teams, and I really like the way Wayne (Douglas) and his team operate. I’m over the moon to have finally signed a deal with such a great team. I have got to thank the Edge Management team as they really have worked hard to make this happen for me. I have to say that the new BRDC F4 car is awesome! Its so fast and has more aero than other existing F4 cars, and it seems to suit my driving style more. We have not done much testing, but the limited running we have done, we have been straight on the pace. I’m really focussed to get the most out of me, and the car, everytime I set foot in it.”
Wayne Douglas, Team Principal, Douglas Motorsport: “We are delighted to have signed Enaam. We tested him a couple of weeks ago at Donington, and he immediately impressed us. His maturity, professional approach, and outstanding pace shone through. I think the driver pairing we have managed to sign may see a few upsets throughout the season, and I can’t wait to start the racing!”
The 2016 BRDC Formula 4 Championship gets underway at Snetterton on the weekend of March 27/28, and takes in races at renowned circuits such as Brands Hatch, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps.
