Tony Gilham of Team HARD, said: “I’m very proud to launch our 2015 competition. The previous Scholarship went very
well and we found some amazing drivers and we have signed a few off the back of it. Having worked my way up from the MR2 championship through the VW Cup, Porsche Carrera Cup GB and into the BTCC, I understand how difficult it is to get a start in motorsport. So to be able to offer someone this opportunity is an absolute pleasure for us. I will be one of the judges in the final and I cannot wait to help give someone their break in motorsport.We have learnt from the last time we ran the scholarship and this time round we will make sure it is bigger and better for everyone involved”
