ABKC Super One


ENAAM CLINCHES 2012 ABKC NATIONAL SUPER ONE CHAMPIONSHIP-

Enaam Ahmed became the most

successful cadet driver of 2012 when he

won the ABkC Super One Championship on

30th September. The 12 year old beat over

50 drivers in the 7 round Championship to

join a long list of drivers to win the title

including such names as Dan Wheldon,

Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and Paul di

Resta.

Enaam came into the final round of the

Championship, held at Shenington, Banbury

with a 22 point lead over team mate Josh

Smith on dropped scores. Following a

difficult start to the weekend, Enaam

worked hard with his Fusion Motorsport

team to get on the pace in qualifying,

posting 3rd fastest lap in group to line up

on the second row for both his heats. Two

2nd positions would earn Enaam a grid 3

starting position for Final 1, a race that

could decide the outcome i f the

Championship.

The title battle was given a huge twist, as

Enaam and his team mates were hit off at

the start of the race, rejoining at the back

of the field. Enaam sustained damage to his

kart and injured his leg and struggled back

to 16th. With Smith finishing 9 places

higher, it meant the Championship would go

down to the wire, Enaam needing to finish in

the top 10 to secure the title.

He wasted no time in Final 2 and stormed

through the field until comfortably inside the

top 10, breaking away with the lead group.

He edged into 5th and from there on he

knew he was safe, so sensibly stayed out of

the battle for the lead despite setting

second fastest lap.

The 12 year old cruised home in 6th, to

take the Championship victory, writing his

name in the history books alongside some

illustrious racing heroes.

Despite being unseeded going into 2012,

Enaam’s National S1 title, coupled with his

second place in the British Championship

and his British Open and Winter Cup

victories earlier in the season, mark him

out as the most successful cadet driver of

2012 against drivers up to a year older

and with significantly more experience. He

will now graduate to KF3 and compete in

the Bri t i s h , European and World

Championships in 2013.
