Wednesday, 04 November 2009 15:40
The Jim Russell Racing Drivers School has formally announced a partnership with Superkarts! USA to award two scholarships for the ‘Future Driver 2010 Selection’ to two lucky SuperNationals XIII drivers. A panel of three scouts will select a driver from each the S3 and TaG Senior fields to receive a direct bid to the Future Driver Selection, held at Infineon Raceway December 19-22, a value of $7995 each.

The Jim Russell Future Driver Selection is an international initiative created this year to find the best young talent from the worlds of karting and ‘junior’ formula car racing. It is designed to be a merit-based competition that rewards the two best young drivers with a fully-funded season of racing in the 2010 Jim Russell Championship Series (JRCS). From there the competitors will find themselves battling it out for the JRCS Prize Package, a fully-funded season in the 2011 FIA Formula Two Championship.

"As the premier karting event in the USA, SuperNats is the ideal venue to observe and select drivers for our Future Driver program and compliments our ladder system which is comprehensive from karting through Formula 1” explained Chip Pankow, President, Jim Russell Racing Drivers School.

The criteria for the Selection Scholarship are as follows: (1) Drivers must compete in either the S3 or TaG Senior categories at SuperNationals XIII (2) Submit a Future Driver Scholarship Application by November 20, 2009. Drivers will be evaluated on the presence and performance by a team of scouts throughout the event week in Las Vegas.

“We are excited about this program, and can’t wait to help two top drivers reach their driving goals with the help of the Jim Russell Racing Drivers search,” stated Tom Kutscher, owner and CEO of Superkarts! USA.

The 16-race Jim Russell Championship Series will be contested on a variety of configurations at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA (USA). The program includes driver coaching complimented by full data acquisition, media training and seminars on a variety of topics essential for today’s racing driver. Winner of next year’s Championship will be awarded a seat in the FIA Formula Two Championship, a launching pad to a career in motorsports.
