Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Teenager Enaam Ahmed ex­pects to con­test a sec­ond sea­son of BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 af­ter a strong de­but year with Dou­glas Mo­tor­sport.

Ahmed, 16, scored a win in the third race of the re­badged cham­pi­onship at Snet­ter­ton in March and scored an­other four podi­ums over the course of the sea­son to claim fifth over­all in the points.

He ended the sea­son with a sec­ond-place fin­ish in the fi­nal race at Don­ing­ton Park ahead of Dou­glas team-mate Thomas Ran­dle, and said he was tar­get­ing a sec­ond year in the cham­pi­onship – as well as a run in Oc­to­ber’s Au­tumn Tro­phy event at Snet­ter­ton.

“I’m prob­a­bly go­ing to do an­other year be­cause I’ll be 16 go­ing into next year and I’ve been rac­ing against peo­ple who are 19, 20 and are ex­pe­ri­enced.

“I’m re­ally happy with how it’s gone, es­pe­cially to have got a win. I think I’ll be do­ing the Au­tumn Tro­phy as well, but I’m still de­cid­ing on teams.”
