British racer Struan Moore is to move to All-Japan Formula 3 Championship this year with the KCMG team.
The 19-year-old Moore has become the first driver to announce a seat in the Championship Class, which was won by HFDP Racing man Nobuharu Matsushita.
Moore took a race victory and seven podiums on his way to 5th in last year’s BRDC F4 Championship with Lanan Racing, followed by a win in the MRF Challenge in Bahrain.
According to the excitable Moore, “After a successful 2014, I’m so pleased to be joining such a well-established and growing team. I’m looking forward to the challenge and testing my skills against some top class drivers.”
Since their creation eight years ago, KCMG have carved out a road in numerous categories, including the LMP2 class in the FIA World Endurance Championship. Moore added, “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.”
Meanwhile KCMG will be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing 2014 season, where their sole driver, Shohei Yuzawa, ran scoreless for the duration.
The 2015 All-Japan F3 Series kicks off in April at Suzuka.
