February 5, 2009

Zaamin JafferZaamin Jaffer is a serious contender in the 2009 British Formula Ford Championship with team Raysport and is currently in England dividing his time between studying at University and training for the British Formula Ford Championship, with the help of Andy Priaulx Performance Management Programme.

Zaamin’s move from India to Dubai four years ago opened the doors to professional training and saw him get into senior karting championships, where he took part in his first national championship race at Dubai Kartdrome securing a podium finish. Since gaining podium finishes in the UAE National Karting Championship, he has achieved considerable success in Formula BMW testing, as well as finishing on the podium in the Dubai 24hr endurance karting events.

Sawsan Ghanem, AMCIPR, Managing Director, Active PR, said: “Passion, drive and dedication are the cornerstones of our business and we strongly believe that we share these values with Zaamin.”

“We are delighted to have been chosen by Zaamin as his PR partner for the ME region and look forward to communicating his successes on a local and regional level. Zaamin is a ‘home grown’ talent who has a promising future ahead of him in the professional Motorsport world and we look forward to going through the experience with him,” she added.

“I am delighted to be working with Active PR who I believe possess the enthusiasm, energy and strong contacts in the ME market to build my profile in the region and help to communicate my progress & achievements to a wide target audience,” said Zaamin Jaffer.

“Active PR will also be helping me to find potential sponsors for 2009 and 2010 international racing season. For 2009, I still have white livery space available on the car for the equivalent of title sponsorship coverage at a fraction of the typical cost,” he added.

Zaamin is now set to compete in what is arguably one of the worlds most competitive and prestigious single-seater formulae. He’s begun his rigorous testing programme in Nov ’08 at Donington Park and is about to embark on a whole series of scheduled tests at Brands Hatch and Snetterton over the coming weeks.
