Khan joins Renault as demonstration driver 28 Jan 2009
As Renault gathered at their Parisian flagship store on Tuesday to present the new R29 to their partners, the team announced that 23 year-old Adam Khan has joined their line-up as a demonstration driver. Khan will take part in city demonstrations and presentations for World Series by Renault events.
"It's an honour for me to join the ING Renault F1 team and I really can't wait to get started," said Khan as he was presented at l'Atelier Renault. "I have enjoyed a really warm welcome into the team and everyone has been friendly and helpful. It will be awesome to showcase the R28 on the streets of some of the world's greatest cities and to allow the public to witness the power and speed of an F1 car.
"The opportunity in itself encompasses a huge array of things and is fantastic preparation for the future, which I hope with hard work and commitment, as well as enjoyment, will be a bright one."
Renault managing director Flavio Braitore added: "We are pleased to welcome Adam into the ING Renault F1 Team as our demonstration driver. Our demonstration programme gives young talent the chance to work closely with the team and to showcase their skills behind the wheel of our Grand Prix cars.
Adam now has the chance to demonstrate the talent he has shown throughout his career and to gain valuable experience working at the pinnacle of the sport."
The British driver, who has raced in the Euroseries 3000, the GP2 Asia series and British Formula Three, will make his debut for the team when their roadshow programme kicks off in the Middle East later this year.
