Correa is a young American of Ecuadorian descent who currently resides in Miami. After winning the 2013 Rotax Junior World Champion title, this young talent spent his last two years karting in Europe all the way up to join the Prema stable for a program including the German series and selected rounds in the Italian championship.
Angelo Rosin – Team Principal
“Correa is one of the best kart racers around and having the chance to work with him in his single seater debut is a privilege. The kid is quick, can deal with the technical personnel and is definitely a promising prospect. Obviously, running in the German championship will not be easy with a roster of more than 40 drivers, but I am sure it will be the best proving ground available for a rookie racer like Correa”.
Juan Manuel Correa
“I am very excited for the coming season, and extremely pleased to be doing it with a top team like Prema Powerteam. I have started my pre-season testing with Prema Powerteam and already it feels like home. Their experience with developing young drivers is something you sense from the first day. I am confident the 2016 season with Prema Powerteam will contribute greatly to my development as a driver. Both on and off the track”.
