Chennai, April 5 (IANS) Indias Armaan Ebrahim has taken a giant step towards his dream of appearing at the FIA World Endurance Championship by signing up to race in the ultra competitive Pro Class of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia Championship for the coming season.
Armaan will turn out in the striking colours of FFF Racing and will have UK’s teenage sensation Jack Bartholomew as his partner.
The exciting duo meld into a formidable team in the company of Carrie Schreiner and Richard ‘Spike’ Goddard, who will race alongside them in FFF’s second Lamborghini Huracan.
“We are delighted to have Armaan in our Super Trofeo Asia programme,” FFF Racing team owner Sean Fu Songyang said.
“He is a proven race winner and, along with Jack, will be the car to beat,” he added.
The Super Trofeo Asia series begins on April 7-9 at Sepang, Malaysia. Buriram, Suzuka and Fuji will host the next three rounds while the final race will be held in Imola, Italy.
For Armaan, it’s the logical step forward after excelling in the Pro-Am Class over the last two seasons.
“After winning the title last year, it was natural for me to get into the Pro Class,” the young Indian racer said.
“I have a good teammate and I am looking forward to making 2017 a grand one,” he added.
