“I am aware the drivers' in KF2 should be of a higher standard. You have got people there that have been doing it for a few years and those that do it professionally, rather than do it to try and use it as a springboard to single-seaters and circuit racing. They are actually being paid to do it because they are good drivers. There will also be people from KF1 competing too, now that KF1 is no more. It is going to be very competitive, but I am confident and convinced I can do well with the effort I put in.
“My main goal is just to try and be a front running driver in KF2 and then we will take it from there.”
Sammy's father and manager, Emil, meanwhile is confident now is the right time for his son to move up to KF2.
He is also hopeful that the youngster's appearance in The Dandy
will help to continue to raise his profile.
“Sammy did tremendously well this season in his first year in KF3,” said Emil. “We feel he will gain more by going to KF2 though, than spending another year in KF3. It is not going to be easy, but Sammy showed this year he has the speed, given the right equipment, and that is something we are working on now to get in place for 2013. I am not sure it is all 'Dandy' yet, but we are going in the right direction.”
