The 25yrs old driver from Naples switches from CRG to BirelART after 10 years spent with the black&orange squad.
Their collaboration started in 2006, ten years ago, and now it’s time to change also for Felice Tiene. The peak of their relationship was KF2 World Cup in Zuera back in 2012, when the Italian driver led Max Verstappen, Jordon Lennox-Lamb and Tom Joyner and won the world title.
“After a decade spent with CRG I wanted to change environment and to face new challenges, and with Birel ART I found the right factory to breathe new air - says Felice Tiene – I will race the KZ and we have an overall plan for the next season, but it’s not definited in details yet.”
After Pedro Hiltbrand, also Tiene looks forward outside Desenzano: “Everybody is free to find himself where he thinks it’s better, at the moment for me is Birel ART and for Pedro is Tony Kart. CRG has a plenty of talented drivers and a very competitve technical pack, so they will not miss us.”
“I am very pleased to confirm Tiene as our lead driver in KZ. Felice is a very experienced driver and the results achieved in his career prove his great potential. I am sure that we will work very well together and that we will race to get some great results right away” - comments Rickard Kaell, technical director at Birel ART
