“I am very excited to be joining this Championship and I’m very grateful for all the help and encouragement I have received over the years from Uncle Khaled. I am also thankful for all the support I have from sponsors, friends and family who have helped me get onto the grid,” stated Haytham.

“I’m under no illusions as to how challenging this season will be as a newcomer to the sport. I will start off in the rookie class, and I want to spend the first season getting to grips with the car and to learn as much as I can,” he continued.
