Last 2 years, Nabil Jeffri made history by becoming the youngest F1 test driver in Formula 1 history when he drove a Lotus T127 on a runway at UK’s Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire, UK. Now, the Eurointernational driver is about to race at the prestigious F1 Silverstone Circuit. The 5.901 km circuit with 18 turns will host the 9th and 10th Round of the JK Racing Asia Series 2012.
This third European outing after the Paul Ricard Circuit, France and the Spa Francorchamps Circuit, Belgium will be taking place on the 8th & 9th of September. Currently, Nabil Jeffri who is also National Youth Icon is in the lead by 12 points halfway through the championship. He is looking forward to the races, armed with the desire to win. With 3 weeks to go, Nabil is undergoing preparations for his upcoming race, such as simulators on Silverstone Circuit and some fitness trainings with his personal trainer, Roman Engel from Fitrace.
Most of drivers taking part in the Series have never driven on this track before. The fastest driver to adapt to the track has a better advantage. Another challenge he would face is to adapt to the weather conditions there quickly. “I’m feeling very confident with the track because I’ve been doing a lot of simulator on that circuit and it is one of my favourite circuits. I’m going to carry the momentum from the last race at Spa Francorchamps Circuit which is P1 and P2 to Silverstone Circuit. I hope to have a perfect weekend, to qualify both poles and win race 1 and 2,” said Nabil.
