Armin Strom has chosen English racing star Dean Stoneman as a brand ambassador for the 2015 season.
24-year old Stoneman has fought back to race fitness following a successful battle with cancer, and even hopes to rekindle his dream of becoming a Formula 1 driver in the future.
"Dean Stoneman is a person of extraordinary heart, courage and impressive accomplishment," said Armin Strom owner Serge Michel. "We could not be more honoured to have him as a brand ambassador." Michel presented Stoneman with an Armin Strom Racing Gravity watch at Baselworld in March.
In 2010, Stoneman was about to fulfill his dream to become an F1 driver when he discovered a lump in his stomach.
Doctors discovered tumors throughout his body and diagnosed a rare sub-type of testicular cancer.
The driver underwent two years of aggressive treatment, eventually making an extraordinary recovery.
His story, which he shares as a youth ambassador for the Wessex Cancer Trust, inspires young people who are battling the disease.
Considered one of the most gifted drivers of his generation, Stoneman celebrated five wins in Great Britain’s Porsche Carerra Cup during his first year back in 2013 and five victories last year with the GP3 Marussia and Koiranen teams. This year, he has joined DAMS and part of the Red Bull junior programme, competing in Renault World Series 3.5 series. The new season begin May 24 at Motorland Circuit, Aragon Spain.
