Aston Martin Launches Young Driver Initiative For 2019

Aston Martin Launches Young Driver Initiative For 2019

Aston Martin Racing is launching the AMR Young Driver Academy for 2019 in its search to find the next Ross Gunn, the factory FIA World Endurance Championship team’s current reserve and development driver and the winner of its previous young driver scheme in 2015.

This new initiative aims to fast-track talent within the Aston Martin Racing customer network to factory status, and is set to run through 2019.

The AMR Young Driver Academy will include drivers between ages 17 and 25, and is eligible only to those competing in partner and customer Vantage GT cars in recognized championships. Contestants will be judged on a wide range of criteria that include pace, consistency, technical feedback and fitness.

The judging panel will also evaluate drivers’ ability to manage the strategic, teamwork, commercial and public relations aspects of their role. Finally, the outstanding candidate will demonstrate the most potential to develop their talent for the future.

The AMR Young Driver Academy is intended to stimulate healthy competition through the ranks that will encourage more talented rising stars to sign up and race for both established and incoming partner team programs next year.

Interested parties should submit their racing CV to by March 1, 2019.
