Motor Sport News - - Karting -

Kart­ing star Kiern Jewiss will race for Ric­cia­rdo Kart in the new Ok-ju­nior class this year.

The 13-year-old is the reign­ing Su­per One Na­tional Ro­tax Mini Max cham­pion and also won the IAME Cadet class in the 2014 Kart­mas­ters Grand Prix.

Jewiss will now drive for Daniel Ric­cia­rdo’s team that was launched last year.

For this sea­son, Ric­cia­rdo Kart will be an of­fi­cial fac­tory team us­ing karts de­signed and made by Birel ART.

“I can’t wait to start the sea­son,” said Jewiss. “So far the win­ter tests have been very pos­i­tive and I would like to thank Ric­cia­rdo Kart for this op­por­tu­nity and for its sup­port. I have a re­ally good re­la­tion­ship with the team: we work to­wards the same goals and have the same vi­sion.”

Ric­cia­rdo added: “It’s great hav­ing Kiern as a team mem­ber. A driver of his qual­ity and back­ground will be a great as­set to our team. I and all the guys on the team look for­ward to work­ing with him and see­ing what re­sults we can achieve to­gether.” ● Jewiss will be joined in the class by Fin Ken­neally this year. The 13-year-old fin­ished third in the Mini Max stand­ings last year and also starred in the Ju­nior Max Euro Chal­lenge. He will now drive for the suc­cess­ful Ricky Flynn Mo­tor­sport out­fit.
