Rammerman Bags Future Star Award

press release

At the CAMS SA Motorsport Awards night held on 7 February 2009, 19 year old Adelaide based Daniel Ramerman was announced as the recipient of the 2009 CAMS SA/NT Future Star award.

Ramerman also received the 2008 Peter Wright Memorial Driver of the Year trophy for his very successful 2008 in both Superkarting and Formula Ford 1600.

Ramerman, driving a 1993 Anderson fitted with a 1992 Yamaha TZ 250, was the highest placed SA based driver in the 2008 Australian Superkart Championship. He finished 6th outright in the Championship following a 5th outright in a strong field of 37 karts at Mallala and 10th outright in a very strong 42 kart field at the 1st round held at Eastern Creek in NSW.  

He mirrored that success in his 250 International with a number of victories at the Adelaide Superkart Club races finishing in 2nd place for the 2008 Club Champion (250 International).  Unfortunately, a broken arm prevented Daniel contesting the last round of the Superkart Cup and the Australian Superkart Grand Prix.

Ramerman also raced a Formula Ford 1600 in 2008 finishing 2nd in the 2008 SA Formula Ford 1600 Championship.  Ramerman’s debut year in the Formula Ford 1600 was impressive.  Driving a 2001 Van Diemen, he impressed with pole position for each of the 4 rounds of the Championship, winning 3 rounds outright, 8 race wins and finishing all 13 races.

Ramerman will drive a 2007 Spectrum Formula Ford Duratec in 2009 for Engman Engineering in the South Australian Formula Ford Duratec series.  The team will venture interstate to compete in Victoria and several rounds of the 2009 Australian Formula Ford Championship.

19 year old Daniel Ramerman is based in Adelaide.  He started his motor sport career in 2004 driving a 125cc Rotax Max Superkart at Mallala Motor Sport Park.  He stepped up to a 250cc International Superkart in 2007.  In 2008 he drove a Formula Ford 1600 for Engman Engineering as well as the Superkart.
