Default Indian racing driver competing in the UK

Hi Everyone

I had joined this forum many years ago but stopped visiting it due to moving out of India.

However in that time I have started competing in motorsport.

Firstly in the UAE karting championship where I took race wins and podiums in a few part seasons.

Since then I raised the sponsorship to go and compete in the British Formula Ford championship.

This year I am racing in the Formula Renault championship where I am currently 8th in the standings (24 drivers) and top rookie. The championship is very competitive, for example in Round 2 at Brands Hatch I qualified 0.2s of pole position which left me 8th on the grid!

Anyway, you can find out more info on www.zaaminjafer.com but the reason why I am on here is to ask for some support in order to raise my profile in India as I have had no luck so far and at the moment I only have the budget to see out this year and need to find funding for next year.

Any advice on who to contact etc would be great!

I hope I haven't broken any forum rules here.

Your support would be greatly appreciated.

ZJ

Brilliant. Will try and catching one of your races if time permits. Hopefully Silverstone will be possible.

Good luck on your races. I think if you have good results, the publicity follows. It also helps if you have good contacts even if you don't have the results ( ala Karun Chandok ). Here's wishing you all the best.
