The new sponsor of a GP2 team is tipped to eventually enter formula one.
The Spanish newspaper El Confidencial said a deal between the GP2 outfit Campos and Jangonya Ayan – KFC’s Indonesian branch – will be formally launched in Jakarta on February 26.
With the deal, Indonesian driver Sam Gelael is joining the team.
“It is a sponsor with formula one potential,” said Adrian Campos. “At the moment, they want to be in GP2 with us, and we want to be with them, of course.”
KFC is the world’s second largest fast food chain after McDonald’s.
