17-Year-Old Zambian Signs Formula 3 Racing Contract

17-year-old Joshua Mwanamuke of Lusaka has signed a one year Formula 3 racing contract with British company Formec.

He said at a press briefing in Lusaka that it is a dream come true for him to clinch an F3 racing deal with Formec.

Mwanamuke, who is also studying in the United Kingdom, received a B international racing licence which allows him to compete anywhere in the world.

Cars in F3 use a single-spec engine and it is a lower division of Formula 1 whose world champion is Briton Lewis Hamilton.

And National Sports Council of Zambia acting general secretary Raphael Mulenga said government will support Mwanamuke in his endeavour to become a world champion.

    Way to go. Great achievement. Shows what commitment and consistency can lead to. Best of luck.

  3. Nthaka

    Mwanamuke, at your age (17 years) you have lifted the Zambian flag even higher beyond global horizon-just like the success being recorded by our Indigenous Zambian Doctors (Surgeons) here back home.

    Heartfelt congratulations, God will continue blessing you.

    Even the sky should not be your limit!

    This is wonderful but its shame to the country knowing that they have failed to maintain sports facilities being poor means failing to decide straight either the government or individuals but mostly if structures are their individuals may happen to be responsible of using their talents how is it possible for one if he wants to progress in a different sport unless he or she goes abroad

    Well done young man. Word of caution though…dont listen to thede politicians. There is nothing they can do to help you achieve your dream. They only come on board after one has laid his or her foundation. They didnt know you yesterday and today they want to confuse you. Stick to your work ethics which have seen you come this far and listen to your sponsors and not these politicians unless you want to dance Dununa reverse

    Congratulations young man, that is it! There are so many ways to make a living. Indeed the sky is the limit. Follow your dreams ,nothing is impossible on earth.

  12. International Order

    Congratulations Mwanamuke. It is great to take advantage of an opportunity to follow your dream anywhere in the world. Yes, Zambia may be too poor to spare funds to help. But GOD distributes talent evenly among all people of the world. But some from poor countries do not get the same opportunity. Now that you do, MAKE YOUR SPONSORS AND ALL OF US PROUD.
