Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Oliver Row­land will join the DAMS team for his sec­ond year in the GP2 Se­ries this sea­son.

The 24-year-old, who is backed by the Rac­ing Steps foun­da­tion, will team-up with Ni­cholas Lat­ifi at the French team that for­merly ran Bri­ton Jolyon Palmer to the GP2 ti­tle.

Row­land fin­ished ninth in last year’s GP2 points, de­spite lead­ing the cham­pi­onship af­ter five rounds into his maiden cam­paign with MP Mo­tor­sport.

“The over­all aim is to go and dom­i­nate the cham­pi­onship, that’s my per­sonal tar­get and it is shared by the team,” said Row­land.

“Last year was my first year and with the tyres it was some­times dif­fi­cult, but there were lots of pos­i­tives. Go­ing into this year, I’ve got a lot bet­ter with my ap­proach go­ing into each race, so I’m look­ing for­ward to putting it into place.”
