The KINC signs future USA Formula 1 driver Conor Daly for Global representation

American racing star Conor Daly (21) and his management team have appointed The KINC for Global representation as of immediate effect.

Conor has been racing for 10 years and at still only 21 he has impressed in every class of racing he has competed in by taking multiple podiums, race wins, championships and even breaking records along the way. Like all drivers at this level he began racing in Karting before making the change to single seater racing where he dominated Formula Ford, Formula Pro Mazda and Indy Lights. He then moved to Europe to compete in GP3, winning in Barcelona, with the ultimate goal at securing a permanent Formula One drive as the next American F1 star.

Conor, the son of former F1 & Indy Car racing driver Derek Daly, is currently in the UK to finalise his 2013 plans after winning the 10 round MRF Challenge Championship in India with a flawless weekend of two race victories.

Derek Daly commented, “Conor and his support team are growing as his horizons expand. We are delighted to be officially associated and represented by The KINC and look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

2013 is going to be an exciting year for Conor. He has shown great speed & composure over the winter when he tested an Indy Car with AJ Foyt Enterprises at Sebring International Raceway & also did aero testing in 2012 with F1 team Sahara Force India. Carrying this momentum and experience into the start of his 2013 season will make him the one to watch.

The KINC Managing Director Paul Knipe said, “Working directly with Conor and his support team is a fantastic opportunity for The KINC. Conor has the skills and personality to be the next successful American F1 racing driver and I’m looking forward to The KINC playing our part in helping Conor achieve his goals.”

Conor will be represented by Ian Bergin, Director of Motorsports at The KINC. Bergin added: “Conor has been on my radar for some time and it’s great that we are now moving forward together. Derek and I share many fundamental aspects to help build Conor’s racing career and there is much synergy between Conor, his support team and The KINC. I’m delighted to be representing Conor and look forward to an exciting year ahead.”
