FFF Racing by ACM are pleased to announce the signing of Indian racing driver Armaan Ebrahim who joins the team and will compete in Super Trofeo Asia alongside teammate Jack Bartholomew. The team are running a two -car programme with Carrie Schreiner and Richard ‘Spike’ Goddard running in the sister Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo and welcome Ebrahim to the team.
“We are obviously delighted to have been able to sign Armaan to drive with FFF Racing Team in our Super Trofeo Asia programme,” said FFF Racing Team Owner, Sean Fu Songyang. “He is a proven race winner and putting him with Jack, who is exceptionally quick in his own right, will make them a formidable duo to beat. With Spike and Carrie in the second car, our Super Trofeo Asia programme looks very strong and we should be able to hit the ground running.”
Ebrahim comes originally from a background in single seaters, initially competing in Formula BMW in Asia and then in A1GP. Three seasons in the Formula 2 championship followed before he moved to Super Trofeo Asia in 2015, finishing second overall in his first attempt. Proving he had the speed to add to his tally of victories, Ebrahim took the Pro-Am honours in 2016 with seven race wins from 12 starts.
“I am very pleased and excited to be joining FFF Racing in an all Pro line-up,” Ebrahim said. “I spent the last couple of seasons driving in Pro-Am and last year even winning the title in our class. I’ve got a good team mate in Jack and look forward to working together and making 2017 a successful one! Lastly I’d like to thank the guys at FFF Racing for helping put this deal together.”
The Super Trofeo Asia series gets underway next weekend (7-9 April, 2017) with the first round at Sepang Malaysia. A further three rounds follow at Buriram, Suzuka and Fuji, before the season concludes at Imola, Italy, in November.
