Josef Kaufmann Racing have announced the re-signing of Kevin Jorg for the 2015 season in Formula Renault 2.0.

The 19-year-old Swiss driver will do full campaigns in both the Eurocup and the NEC in what will be his third year at FR2.0 level.

Last year he finished sixth in the Eurocup, winning one race in Moscow, and was victorious on two occasions in a partial NEC programme.

“Once more I’m very pleased to race again with Josef Kaufmann Racing, especially to get the chance to compete in both championships, Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and NEC,” said Jorg.

“Based on my results last year, I’m very motivated and I expect to race for podium positions every race weekend and be able to fight for the championship title.”

Kaufmann added: “We are very pleased that Kevin is racing again with us this year. Kevin is an excellent qualifier and well considered race driver what he has already proved more than once last year. After our very strong season last year, we feel very positive to achieve our ambitious goals this season in both championships.”

Jorg joins compatriot Louis Deletraz in staying with JKR for a double assault on the Eurocup and NEC.
