Rasmus Mårthen confirmed as fourth Kia driver

Rasmus Mårthen has been confirmed as the fourth driver for Team Kia in the 2015 Scandinavian Touring Car Championship, joining the team later during the season.
”It feels incredibly motivating to return and do the biggest thing in my career,” said Mårthen.

The 22-year-old has previously raced JTCC, Scirocco Cup and most recently V8 Thundercars. But Mårthen had to abort last year’s season after a crash where he injured his back.

”I had two fractures and herniated discs. I have had a corset since then. But I am on my way back and I want to race as soon as my back is ok,” said Mårthen.

The team has not yet specified when Mårthen is going to drive, but information to TouringCarTimes suggests that it will be somewhere around mid-point of the championship.
