Armaan Ebrahim set for pre-season F2 testing
Armaan Ebrahim, the 21-year old from Chennai, arrived in England for two rounds of pre-season testing ahead of the 2011 Formula Two championship beginning in April.
Armaan, who returned to F2 for a third season, will be testing at the hallowed Silverstone track on Tuesday, March 22 and then at Snetterton on March 30.
“I have been training hard during the off-season. The GP2 testing in October last year was a big help and I look forward to a new season while aiming for at least a top-3 finish in the championship if not win it.
“I will try to secure as many podium finishes as possible as I am quite familiar with the circuits,” said Armaan who is sponsored by JK Tyre and Amaron.
The first of the eight rounds of the 2011 Championship is at Silverstone on April 15-17.
Armaan showcased his potential in the 2010 championship by finishing overall 10th with a podium position in the season’s final round in Valencia, Spain.
“Overall, I was quite happy with my performance last year although it could have been better. At one stage, I was running sixth in the championship, but a few retirements in the second half of the season cost me valuable points,” Armaan said in reviewing his 2010 performance.
