Almost two months before the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine season start, the number of drivers grows up. After having confirmed the young Irish Adam Fitzgerald, team RPM announced the second driver of its 2023 line up: Santiago Ramos.
Filling the ranks of the team lead by Keith Donegan, there will be the 19-year-old Mexican, at his second season in the European series, after debuting with KIC Motorsport in 2022 and finishing the season in Mugello with RPM. Before moving to open wheels, Ramos started his career competing in several karting championships such as SKUSA SuperNationals, German Kart Championship and WSK Euro Series. He moved to the Italian F4 in 2019 and he did some races in the Spanish Formula 4 in 2021.
“I am delighted to announce that I will be joining RPM in the Formula Regional Championship. This is an incredible opportunity for me to showcase my skills in such a competitive field of drivers. I am eager to work alongside such an accomplished team and to contribute to our collective success. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me throughout my career, and to my team for providing me with this opportunity. I am looking forward to representing such an amazing team on track and achieving great results together.”
Keith Donegan – Team Principal:
“It’s great to have Santiago with us onboard for 2023. We were very impressed with his performance in pre-season testing, so I think there is a lot of talent and potential there. I think Santiago can be a real contender this season. We are excited to get going in Imola in April.”
