K-Hill Motorsports is pleased to announce the addition of Hans Ada to their growing F1600 program. The 24 year-old has competed in a variety of off road racing classes, ranging from UTVs to the TORC Pro Lights series. 2016 will mark the Ohio native’s first year of open-wheel competition.
“I am very fortunate to meet Skylar [Robinson] and K-Hill Motorsports. The team has some of the best in the business and I am very confident this year will be successful and a very important foundation of my racing career”, Ada commented on his signing.
Ada will pilot a Mygale SJ chassis in the 21 race F1600 Championship Series, in addition to other select events. In 2015, the Abbottstown, Pennsylvania squad’s driver Skylar Robinson finished 2nd in the F1600 Championship while rookie driver Austin Mack claimed 5th aided by 1 win and numerous podiums. Ada will look to replicate the success of the two previous drivers, while also learning the close and aggressive racing of F1600.
“We are really excited to have Hans come on board for 2016. Coming from an off-road background, I can imagine there will be quite a big learning curve in terms of driving technique and race craft. However, Hans has shown the desire to learn and constant improvement. I look forward to watching him compete at the front of the pack”, team owner Kris Kaiser stated.
“I'm looking forward to working with Hans in 2016; with his varied previous experience- especially on dirt- he'll bring a unique skill set to the K-Hill F1600 team this season”, lead engineer and team manager Eric Langbein commented.
More news concerning the K-Hill Motorsports F1600 program will be released in the coming weeks.
