The grand winner of the closing event of the KF-Junior European Championship in 2014 at the PF International circuit, Enaam Ahmed also won the European title, a year after Lando Norris, who this time seized 3rd position in Europe in the top class of KF.
The battle was particularly harsh on English soil for the last European event of the season. With increased competition and strong battles on track, it hasn't been easy. But the Ricky Flynn Motorsport team again managed to give its drivers the best possible weapons to defend their chances. The ruthlessly efficient FA Kart chassis and high-performance Vortex engines prepared by One enabled everyone to showcase their talent.
Arriving as the Championship leader in KF-Junior, Enaam Ahmed was the man to beat this weekend. Setting the seventh fastest lap in the rain, then a penalty in one heat, the young Brit fully recovered by winning the prefinal and the final, results that won him the title of European Champion with a solid lead over his direct rivals. It's his third major success this year as he has already won the WSK Champions Cup and the Super WSK Master Series start of the season with RFM. Max Fewtrell joined him in 3rd position on the podium in the final after a great recovery, while Logan Sargeant, unlucky in the prefinal, finally recovered to the top 10 in the race. Those drivers were in 8th and 6th place respectively in the championship. Improving steadily, Sun Yeu Yang gained his best result in England with an interesting 11th position.
Ollie Norris opened the scoring in KF with his magnificent pole position in qualifying in the rain. Lando Norris then returned to the lead group to defend his position in the Championship. Despite attacks from all sides, he secured 6th place in the final with the fastest race lap and finished 3rd in the KF European Championship in his first year in the elite category of karting. Ollie and
Jehan Daruvala were particularly affected by the bad luck in the finals.
After this new international success, RFM is now preparing for the most important event of the year, the World Championship to be held as a single event in France on the Essay circuit in just two weeks.
