After his outstanding performance this year, Enaam Ahmed was recently awarded with the Joe Tandy Memorial Award, beating his fellow competitors to be the ‘Most Impressive Newcomer of the 2015 Season’.
It was awarded to him because of the improvement the London based driver had made over the course of the season. Ahmed mostly competed in MSA Formula where he collected a number of rookie class wins, including four in a row at the end of the year, to take the rookie championship.
His performances showed real improvement throughout, as he even won an overall race in the final weekend of the year.
However; his results weren’t just shown in the UK, as Ahmed raced in the SMP F4 championship for a number of rounds as a guest driver, with it culminating in him winning all three of the races, at the final round in Estonia earlier this month.
“I’m very honoured to be given such an award.” stated Ahmed.
“I didnt know Joe, but of course I know his team, JTR, and they are such an awesome team. I must say a huge thank you to everyone that selected me and it really does mean a lot. I hope I do Joe, JTR, and the championship proud over the next few years with what ever we choose to race in”.
The award was put together in honour of the late Joe Tandy with the help of his race team JTR. Joe’s ethos was to develop and nurture new emerging talent. His younger brother, Nick Tandy, won the Le Mans 24 hours this year.
Having finished as top rookie, Ahmed has the option to return to the MSA Formula series as a likely contender, or move up, with the 15 year old having recently competed in a Formula Renault 2.0 test.
