Deletraz continues Kaufmann collaboration into Eurocup

Swiss driver Louis Deletraz will continue his association with Josef Kaufmann Racing by competing in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series in 2015.

The seventeen-year-old, son of former F1 pay-driver Jean-Denis, will also race for the team in the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC championship and will aim to go one better than his runners-up spot of 2014.

Deletraz made his Eurocup debut in 2014, racing twice for Spanish Eurocup outfit AV Formula as a guest driver, but is looking for a strong full season this year.

“I’m very pleased to continue my collaboration with Josef Kaufmann Racing,” said Deletraz. “They are doing an amazing job and are always able to provide me a winning car.

“Following my Vice-Champion title and winning the Team Championship together with Kaufmann Racing in NEC 2014, I’m really looking forward to make my Formula Renault EUROCUP debut.

“I’m really motivated for this new challenge and I’m ready to fight for top-spots!”

Team Principle Josef Kaufmann was happy to continue the association with Deletraz into 2015, and is expecting good results from his first confirmed driver for 2015.

“Once more we are very happy to have re-signed Louis for one more year,” said Kaufmann. “As Vice-Champion of Formula Renault 2.0 NEC in 2014, Louis is prepared perfectly for this year’s full double program in Formula Renault 2.0 EUROCUP and NEC.

“We have high expectations on Louis and hope that he can show his abilities to fight for the top results.”
