Moraes names KV for `09 campaign.

KV Racing Technology has announced the signing of second-year driver Mario Moraes for the 2009 IndyCar Series season.

The 20-year-old Brazilian, who took a best finish of seventh during his rookie campaign with Dale Coyne Racing, will run with backing from Votorantim on his car during the coming season and will look to make progress up the order to try and fight for a maiden victory.

"I want to thank Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser for this opportunity," he said. "I think KV Racing Technology provides me with the best opportunity to develop as a driver and advance my racing career.

"I am really looking forward to working with the entire KVRT organisation in 2009."

Team co-owner Jimmy Vasser was quick to welcome the Brazilian into the team and said he was confident he would impress during the year ahead.

"We are very excited to have Mario join our team," he said. "Mario is young and extremely talented. He impressed us with his performances on both ovals and road/street circuits last year.

"We look forward to watching him grow and are confident he will be very competitive during the 2009 season."

KVRT ran cars for Will Power and Oriol Servia in 2008.
