Kiefer Racing signs Venezuela's Ramos for 2014

Saturday, 28 September 2013

On Friday at the Gran Premio de Aragón Iveco Kiefer Racing signed a contract with the 19 -year-old Gabriel Ramos from Venezuela to take part in the Moto3™ World Championship of 2014.

For Ramos, who now rides in the Spanish championship for Venezuela Racing Team, it won't not only be the first year in the MotoGP™ World Championship, but he will also be the first rider from Venezuela in the Moto3™ class.

Gabriel Ramos:
"I'm very happy because now my dream to be in the World Championship will become reality. I'm ready for a year, which certainly will not be easy. Because of the 17 tracks where we will ride, 13 will be new for me. Now I will complete an intensive training in order to be physically and mentally 110 % fit. I hope that I can learn from every kilometer that I'm riding and that I will be able to improve steadily. Finally, I would like to try to finish in the points in my first year. For me, it is also important that Stefan Kiefer came to me and not the other way around. So I know that the team has confidence in me and will fight with the same motivation as I do. I would also like to thank my sponsors who supported me, to get here."

Stefan Kiefer, Team Manager:
"We are very pleased that we were able to sign a talent like Gabriel Ramos for the upcoming season for the Moto3 World Championship. As a championship team we have always an eye on the Spanish championship and thetalents, which come from there. For this reason, a few weeks ago we had first conversations with the management of Gabriel during the Spanish Championship in Albacete. Then the contract for 2014 was signed in Aragon today. In preparation for the new season, we may consider taking part in the final two rounds of the Spanish Championship at Valencia or at Jerez de la Frontera. Thus, team and rider can adapt to each other still in this year."
