“I’m very excited in competing with KIC Motorsport for the upcoming season. In December 2021 we had excellent winter tests with the team and since then it was clear for me that KIC Motorsport was the best choice to develop my career. In tests I felt excellent chemistry with all the mechanics, engineers and team principal Petri Lappalainen and therefore I strongly feel that we will push ourselves forward in order to make a great season together.”

“We’re very happy to sign Santiago Ramos for season 2022 to KIC Motorsport. In first half of the season 2021 he injured his back and therefore he was forced to skip events. However after the recovery in second half of the season he made superb comeback with strong pace and after showing his talent in tests which were taken place in December 2021 we shared our common goals. Therefore we’re more than happy to welcome him as a part of KIC Motorsport family.”
