Marketing agency The KINC has announced it has signed Red Bull Global Rallycross driver Nelson Piquet Jr to its motorsport talent roster.

Piquet Jr, physician a former Formula 1 driver, NASCAR race winner, GP2 Series runner-up and British F3 Champion, is currently competing in his first full rallycross season and has made an impressive start, achieving two podium finishes from the first three races.

Piquet Jr has followed his agent Steve Hewett, who joins The KINC from his previous role as Head of Athletes Relations for North America at Alpinestars where he worked on several motorsport series including IndyCar and Formula Drift. Piquet Jr retains NASCAR representation in the USA with FUEL Sports Management.

Piquet Jr said: “My career is quite diverse – this year I am participating in Global Rallycross, FIA GT and some NASCAR activities and so it’s important to have the right team around me. I have great NASCAR representation in the US and now with The KINC I believe I have a great European based company to work with. I am really looking forward to working with them.”

Kristoffer Hansson, Head of Rights and Athlete Representation at The KINC, said: “Nelson is a driver who has demonstrated his skill and adaptability by competing at the highest level across a range of different racing formats from F1 to NASCAR. He’s a great addition to The KINC team and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
