Riley Dickinson will make the switch to Kelly-Moss Road and Race for the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup North America presented by The Cayman Islands season.

The 19-year-old finished fourth in the Pro class championship last year driving for Team Hardpoint.

The Madison, Wis.-based team, led by team owner Jeff Stone and CEO Andy Kilcoyne, won the entrants’ championship in the series’ inaugural season with two of its drivers, Seb Priaulx and Kay van Berlo, placing first and second in the Pro class championship.

“Kelly-Moss Road and Race has shown year after year that they are the premier team in the North American Porsche Cup System,” said Dickinson. “I’m very thankful for the opportunity to join the KMR family.

“Thank you to Jeff Stone and Andy Kilcoyne for putting this together. I am really looking forward to getting the 2022 season started.”

Dickinson will be campaigning a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car with sponsorship from Porsche Austin and Racing for Children’s, a sponsor that van Berlo sported on his KMR Porsche that finished runner-up in 2021.

“New for 2022 is my partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Alabama and Medical Properties Trust,” he said. “I am looking forward to working with them and eager to bring continued awareness to their organization.

“I am also grateful to be continuing my partnership with Porsche Austin for the 2022 season.

“This will be our second year together and I am thrilled for the opportunity to continue promoting the Porsche Austin brand through various motorsport related events.”

Dickinson, a former Hurley Haywood Scholarship Winner, started karting at 7, with the 2018 season marking his switch to cars and enjoying a wide range of success in Porsche single-make series.

“First and foremost, I want to continue to grow and develop my craft as a racing driver and continuing to prepare myself for a career in professional motorsports,” he said.

Kilcoyne added: “We are looking forward to welcoming Riley to our racing family. Riley and Kelly-Moss share a common goal – winning the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup championship.

“Riley has shown tremendous pace and with Kelly-Moss’ aggressive driver development program, Riley will undoubtedly be making frequent trips to the podium this season.”

KMR fielded multiple Porsches in the single-make series last year, with further driver announcements expected in the coming weeks leading into the season-opener at Sebring International Raceway in March.
