Armaan Ebrahim joins David Price Racing

January 07, 2008 19:01 IST

Race prodigy Armaan Ebrahim has been signed up by the UK-based David Price Racing team to compete in the GP2 Asia series this season. 

Though Armaan would be driving only in the Asia leg of the series, it would give him a good platform to compete on the 10-race Asia championship featuring a maximum of 26 cars on the grid.

"David Price is one of the most popular and highly respected professionals in the pit lane and over the last three decades, he has built an enviable reputation as a leading team owner. For them to have taken up the option to run me is a huge confidence boost," the youngster said on Monday.

"The guys in the team are real racers at heart. They have been very welcoming and I'm really delighted and proud to be sitting here today as a DPR driver," he said.

Armaan Ebrahim is the youngest driver to finish in the top three of Formula Renault V6 Asia Series and also drove for A1 Team India in the 2006-07 season.

Explaining the reason to rope in Armaan, David Price said in a statement, "The whole concept of the Asian GP2 series was to help promote drivers from different areas, and I am extremely pleased that DPR have secured the services of one of the most promising young talents to emerge from India."
