Moraes joins KV Racing Technology

KV Racing Technology has announced today that Mario Moraes will drive for the team during the 2010 IZOD Indy Car Series season. He will pilot the #32 Banco Panamericano – KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone Indy Car at this weekend’s season opening Saõ Paulo Indy 300, March 13-14, on the streets of Saõ Paulo, Brazil.

Moraes will also have sponsorship from the Holiday Inn Parque Anhembi and Itatiaia Group in Saõ Paulo, joins Takuma Sato in the No. 5 KV Racing Technology Indy Car and E. J. Viso in the No. 8 PDVSA – KV Racing Technology Indy Car in a three-car effort for KVRT in Brazil.

Originally speculation suggested that Rookie James Rossiter would be behind the keyboard of the No. 32 chassis in a Team Lotus USA collaboration, which apparently either the check hasn’t cleared or this will occur sometime later this season? As recall that Rossiter was originally slated to be one half of the USF1 effort and supposedly comes complete with the necessary budget…
