In 2015, Ahmed made his debut in MSA Formula for Arden where he finished eighth overall, winning one race and the Rookie Cup in his first year racing cars. He also made occasional appearances in the SMP F4 Championship where he enjoyed even more success, picking up five wins and two poles.
For 2016, it was announced that Ahmed would be driving for Douglas Motorsport in the British Formula Three Championship. He finished fifth overall.
Ahmed began 2017 taking part in the Toyota Racing Series with Giles Motorsport alongside Red Bull Juniors Luis Leeds and Richard Verschoor. In January 2017, it was announced Ahmed would switch to Carlin for a second season of British F3.
In December 2017, it was confirmed Ahmed would contest the 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Championship with Silverstone-based Hitech GP.
Ahmed made BRDC British Formula 3 Championship history by taking all three wins in the opening round of the season at Oulton Park. He also recorded three fastest laps across the three races to leave the weekend as championship leader with a perfect score of 95 points.
He went on to make it four wins from four races by taking victory in the opening race at Rockingham, before a further two wins at the next round at Snetterton saw Ahmed surpass the total number of wins achieved by a driver throughout the entirety of the 2016 campaign (5). Although Ahmed finished off the top step of the podium for the first time during a weekend in 2017 at Silverstone, two podium finishes allowed Ahmed to extend his lead in the championship standings.
Ahmed claimed his first pole of the 2017 season in a qualifying session at Spa, before going on to record his seventh and eighth wins of the season. A further second place finish stretched the Carlin driver’s lead at the top of the drivers’ standings to 82 points over nearest rival Toby Sowery.
At the next round at Brands Hatch, Enaam went on to take his second successive pole position, before sealing a lights-to-flag victory in the opening race. He recovered from eighth to finish on the podium in third place in the reverse grid race and recorded another lights-to-flag win – his 10th of the season – in the final race of the weekend.
Ahmed sealed the BRDC British F3 title at the penultimate round of the season at Snetterton, having claimed a further two victories to take his tally up to 12 – matching triple F1 world champion Ayrton Senna’s total of wins from his own title-winning campaign in 1983. As a result, the Carlin driver became the series’ youngest-ever champion at just 17 years old.
At the season finale at Donington Park, Ahmed won the 24th and final race of the season – his 13th victory of the campaign – to surpass the total number of wins Ayrton Senna achieved in 1983 (12). He ended the year on 654 points, 164 clear of his nearest rival.
