Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
