KC Motorgroup Ltd. (KCMG) has confirmed that Struan Moore will represent the team in its 2015 assault on the All-Japan Formula 3 Championship. The 19-year-old Jersey born racer will pilot the Toyota-powered Dallara F313 in the Japanese series’ highly competitive Championship Class.
“Struan brings tremendous talent and enthusiasm to our F3 team. We saw first-hand his skill inside the car and his feedback and interaction with his engineers was very impressive. We have an exciting year ahead and we look forward to developing Struan’s career,” says Ryui Doi, Head of KCMG Motorsport.
Moore graduates from a breakthrough year in 2014 where he contested the BRDC Formula 4 Championship with Lanan Racing. The British driver enjoyed an impressive season with seven podiums and a feature race win, as well as a victory in a one off round of the MRF Championship in Bahrain earlier this year. “After a successful 2014, I’m so pleased to be joining such a well-established and growing team,” says Struan. “I’m looking forward to the challenge and testing my skills against some top class drivers. With KCMG, we’ve mapped out a clear development path with opportunities in WEC alongside my Japanese F3 commitments. I can’t wait to get my F3 testing underway.”
KCMG founder, Paul Ip is looking forward to seeing what Struan can bring to the team. “We’re delighted to add Struan to our driver roster. We have kept an eye on his development throughout 2014 and have been impressed with his race-craft at such a young age. In Bahrain, we were in attendance with our WEC team and saw Struan show his potential with an MRF victory, which left us in no doubt that we’ve chosen the right man.”
