First-time Kenyan racer Jeremy Wahome made his debut of Formula car racing with a sterling performance in Asia.
The 16 year old successfully achieved three rookie wins, two second place finishes and one third place finish at the Formula BMW Asia Cup Series held at the world famous Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.
Being the first time he competed in the Asia Cup series, Wahome opted to participate in a one off round earlier in the year called the Super-Six. The Super-Six consisted of 6 races that were between June 5th to 7th, 2015. These races further prepared him for his first championship cup experience at the Formula BMW Asia Cup Series.
“Participating in the Asia Cup series was a great experience for me as I got to learn a lot on and off the track. I enjoyed close wheel to wheel racing with my competitors,” said Wahome.
The rising race star effectively transitioned from his previous pursuits in Kart racing to Cars. Wahome began his first four races impressively in the first row and achieved his first ever Formula car podium finish.
“I thank God for these results and for giving me the opportunity to chase my dream of becoming a Formula 1 world champion. I look forward to my upcoming races and promise for more to come,” said Wahome.
The Asia Cup series is a championship designed for young drivers seeking to transit from Kart racing to Cars as they gain ranks in the motorsport industry. The aim of these young racers is to ultimately gain entry into the world famous Formula One racing championships.
