Kenya's first Formula one driver
SPORTS By Game Yetu | September 14th 2016
Formula one, a sport with a very small following here in Kenya has its first Kenyan driver Jeremy Wahome.
The 17 year old driver who is a one-time go kart racer represented the county in various championships including the Rotax Africa Open in Pretoria, South Africa in September 2014. He has since graduated to ‘real’ cars.
Jeremy Wahome successfully achieved three rookie wins, two second place finishes and one third place finish at the Formula BMW Asia Cup Series last year held at the world famous Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, the same one that hosts the Malaysian Grand Prix.
The Asia Cup series is a championship specifically designed for young drivers who intend to transit from kart racing to cars and to ultimately gain entry into the world famous Formula 1 racing championships.
