2011 Formula Renault BARC race winner Kourosh Khani has become the latest driver to join BAM Motorsports Promotions.

The Iranian racer, who took victory with Scorpio Motorsport at Oulton Park last year, joins a group of drivers working with BAM including Dan Wells, Romain Grosjean and Jerome D'Ambrosio. The announcement comes as Khani continues his negotiations for a move into the FIA Formula Two Championship in 2012.

The 22 year-old was a proven race winner in Formula Renault BARC, earning a victory at Oulton Park in 2011, whilst another highlight concluded in him finishing third in the MRF Formula Indian Grand Prix support race.

BAM Motorsport Promotions Director, Dave Madgwick said: “Kourosh presents a unique opportunity as he is Iran's only professional racing driver. There is definitely potential for Kourosh to become the region’s front-line single seater driver. Rarely have we come across a driver with such self-belief and determination that Kourosh possesses, and we look forward to helping him realise his ambitions in the future.”

Khani added: “I'm very excited to be working with BAM Motorsport Promotions. They have a very strong, professional line up and I am pleased to be a part of that. I'm really looking forward to finalising my plans for 2012, and can't wait to move forward and get some good results.”
