SMP Racing to partner Koiranen GP again
Koiranen GP has renewed its partnership with SMP Racing for the second year. Finnish team and SMP Racing this year will line up two cars in the Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS for Russian rookies Vitaly Larionov and Mihail Tarasov.
Larionov (pictured) competed in the Formula Abarth championship last year with the Euronova Racing team and secured four podiums and the second place in the Trofeo Nazionale. His team mate Tarasov does not have a very experienced career in singe seaters.
We are really pleased that SMP Racing trusted us again this season and placed two new Russian talents with us. We are here to teach them everything they have to know about a Formula Renault 2.0 and ALPS championship is the best place for them to do so. They will be facing very experienced contenders, but will be helped as well by our other drivers as McLaren driver Nyck de Vries... – said Team Principal Afa Heikkinen.
