Patrik Pasma has made the swap from KIC Motorsport to ART Grand Prix for the rest of the 2021 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine season.

The Finnish racer has changed Thomas Ten Brinke, who introduced his instant retirement from racing after the race weekend at Circuit Zandvoort.

Pasma will be a part of present championship chief Grégoire Saucy and 2020 Italian Formula 4 champion Gabriele Mini at ART Grand Prix, beginning later this month when the season continues at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.

“I am really happy to announce that I’ll be joining ART Grand Prix for the remainder of this season,” mentioned the twenty-one-year-old.  “It is a good crew with many nice information, and I could be proud to be a part of it.

“It won’t be a walk in the park, starting our collaboration in the middle of the season, but I love the challenge. I am really looking forward to working with them and seeing what we can achieve together.”

Sébastien Philippe, the Team Principal at ART Grand Prix, has thanked KIC Motorsport for not standing in the best way of Pasma becoming a member of his crew for the rest of the season, and he expects the Finn to acclimatize shortly to his new crew and rating huge outcomes earlier than the top of the yr.

“I would like to thank KIC Motorsport for facilitating Patrik’s transfer to ART Grand Prix during the season, and I am sure that between his maturity and our experience, his acclimatization will be quick and efficient,” mentioned Philippe.

“Patrik can have a big impact on the rest of the season and we are counting on him to help us win the Teams championship.”
