CDR signs first Kenyan BRDC F4 driver Wahome
Jeremy Wahome will become the first Kenyan driver to race in the BRDC Formula 4 Championship after signing with Chris Dittmann Racing.
The 17-year-old formerly contested the Formula BMW Asia Cup series before testing the olderspec Ralph Firman-built F4 car in late 2014. Wahome tried the new Tatuus-cosworth car at Brands Hatch in November.
“The new car is quite easy to get used to, although it’s not easy to drive,” said Wahome from Nairobi. “The team did really well last year [with Tom Jackson and Omar Ismail]. I enjoyed working with the team, the mechanics and driver coach Kieran [Vernon].
“I want to do well in F4 this season and eventually move up to F3 next year. But there are a lot of competitive drivers and teams, but the overall goal is to get podiums.”
