Armaan will turn out in the striking colours of FFF Racing and will have UK's teenage sensation Jack Bartholomew as his partner.

The exciting duo become a formidable team in the company of Carrie Schreiner and Richard 'Spike' Goddard, who will race alongside them in FFF's second Lamborghini Huracan.

"We are delighted to have Armaan in our Super Trofeo Asia programme," FFF Racing team owner, Sean Fu Songyang said in a statement.

"He is a proven race winner and, along with Jack, will be the car to beat."

The Super Trofeo Asia series begins this weekend (7-9 April) at Sepang, Malaysia.

Buriram, Suzuka and Fuji will host the next three rounds while the final race will be held in Imola, Italy.

For Armaan, it is the logical step forward after excelling in the Pro-Am Class over the last two seasons.

"After winning the title last year, it was natural for me to get into the Pro Class," the young Indian said.

"I have a good teammate and I am looking forward to making 2017 a grand one," he added.

Armaan thanked FFF Racing for not only signing him up but also for stitching together such a strong team.

"I would like to thank all my partners — JK Tyres, Puma and Lamborghini India - for turning my dream into reality," he said.
