Malaysian Nazim Azman will step up to the BRDC British F3 Championship in 2019 with Chris Dittmann Racing, as he continues his ascent of the international motorsport ladder.
The Peak Performance Management protégé is gearing up for his first taste of racing in the UK, having contested the Italian F4 Championship last season, and will bring continued support from the Ranhill Group.
Azman racked up a string of top ten finishes in his debut season in the highly-competitive Italian F4 series with Jenzer Motorsport and, along with parallel campaigns in Spanish F4 and the MRF Challenge, the 17-year old racked up an impressive 53 outings in 2018, with eight podium finishes highlighting his growing experience.
The move to F3 is the next logical step on the recognised single-seater ladder, and the BRDC British F3 Championship will give Nazim the chance to follow in the footsteps of McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris and reigning McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Tom Gamble. Both used the UK’s premier racing championship as a launch pad for their careers. Nazim will partner fellow F3 rookie Ayrton Simmons in the 2019 Chris Dittmann Racing line-up.
Nazim will once again race with the support of the Ranhill Group, the Malaysian energy and environment company that backed him in Italian F4 last season, and Peak Performance Management, which will continue to provide specialist guidance and training advice.
