Hitech GP has today announced the signing of British talent Enaam Ahmed for their 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Championship campaign. The McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver finalist won the British F3 Championship this year and will now move up the single seater ladder.
Ahmed is the first driver Hitech GP confirmed for 2018 so far, the team will enter its third full season in the FIA F3 championship and is determined to compete for both, the driver and team title next year. Team Principal Oliver Oakes is confident that the signing of Ahmed is a step in that direction, he commented: “We are thrilled to have Enaam onboard for 2018. He tested for us in Spa back in November and really impressed us with how quickly he got up to speed in the FIA F3 car. His season in British F3 has been very impressive”
Ahmed is equally excited about the new cooperation and eager to kick-off 2018, he said: “I’m super excited to join Hitech for my debut FIA F3 Season, I’ve known Oliver (Oakes) since I was 10 in Karting so we have a close working relationship already. I feel at home within the team and feel like we could have a strong package going into next year. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my sponsors and investors without whom I simply wouldn’t be able to race next season. They have shown incredible faith in me and I look forward to working with them closely to win many more Championships over the coming years.”
