Go karting is a sport that is unfamiliar to many Kenyans but not to Jeremy Wahome, 18.

The only African in the ongoing Asia Formula 3 competition says he started go karting when he was 8 years old in the Nakuru circuit.

Jeremy then joined the Kenya National Karting Championship in the 60 cc category.

Since then he has participated in various championships with the greatest being the Asia Formula 4 when he was 16 where he emerged the winner.

Other championships he has taken part in are British Formula 3 and the Asia Formula 3 series among others.

Jeremy is optimistic and says there are no major challenges he has faced so far but being 6”2, he says he is one of the heavier drivers so gaining muscle while still trying to keep  light poses as being difficult for him.

He adds that juggling between school and the sport is also not easy.

In the near future Jeremy’s ultimate goal is to be the first Kenyan Formula 1 world champion.

“I have been making progress with my career, so the plan is to keep climbing and learning.Never give up and keep singing ‘Started from the bottom now we are here.’”
