Kenyan Driver Jeremy Wahome to Return to Chris Dittmann Racing for the 2017 BRDC British Formula 3 Season

Chris Dittmann Racing confirmed on Friday that they have re-signed Jeremy Wahome for the 2017 season and his second season of the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship. Team manager Chris Dittmann said, “Jeremy showed great pace during last season and could have had some top six-finishes but for some small mistakes. Consistency showed at the end of the season and now it’s matching those two together. He added, “He’s been working hard in the simulator and we’ve been testing already so I’m confident he will be breaking the top six early in the new season.”

Wahome returns to the UK’s premier single-seater category after his rookie year in which he scored a best result of ninth on the demanding Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, and finished the season with a 10th at Donington Park.

Wahome is excited and will be targeting a podium finish.

It was a big step up going from karting in Kenya to the European circuits for the first time. It’s a fun environment and we work well. The continuity is good too, that will help us start from where we left off last year. Being so close to where I live means I can use the new simulator when I need to and can visit the factory, at the same focusing on my A-levels.”[/perfectpullquote]

He added, “Hopefully we can pick from where we left off last year, inside the top 10 but I know the tracks now and the car so I’m confident we can move up consistently. It’s only my second season in Europe but I’m targeting the top five and then podiums.”
