Motor : Another sponsor for Armaan

Chennai: Eighteen-year-old Armaan Ebrahim is in the process of signing a sponsorship contract with Baldinini, a shoe manufacturing company from Milan, Italy, to fund his GP2 Asia Championship programme.

Baldinini will join JK Tyre, Amaron, Speed, Elf and Anand Cine as the companies Armaan represents.

“John Thomas (who heads the Indian Business Investment Company in Italy) has been interacting with me over the last few months and was very keen to work with me and help contracting me with interested corporates from Europe to support my racing career in GP2, and hopefully leading to Formula One,” said Armaan.
