Formula K is also looking to consolidate its position on the international market, signing top American driver Jake Craig, who will race in the USA’s most important Rotax events and will serve as official ambassador for Formula K. "In Formula K we are very happy to have signed a two year agreement with Lorenzo Camplese" said Formula K's Andrea Bertolini . "We have been supporting him for some time now and we think he is the right guy for the team, in light of his strength on track, but also of his dedication and professionalism. In addition, he already knows Bas and we know how important it is to create the right team feeling. With Bas and Lorenzo, we now have two diamonds to line up in KZ and KZ2 with whom we can aim for victory and pursue a steady and careful development of Formula K equipment on every race weekend."
