Team HARD. Scholarship 2017

Tony Gilham and Team HARD. Racing are offering YOU the opportunity to win a fully funded works drive for the 2018 Volkswagen Racing Cup. A Prize fund that is worth in the region of £100,000.

Following a very successful year in which we secured the championship win in the VW Racing Cup, we have decided to run our scholarship programme again after a short break.

Win the opportunity to race in a Team HARD. VW Golf GTI R Wide body cup car fully race prepared and built to the latest specification.

A fully funded drive for the 2018 race season in the VW Racing Cup on a full arrive and drive basis to include championship entry, race entry fees, 10 test days throughout the season, all test and race fuel, fully qualified staff and support, race car hire, full tyre allocation and VIP race weekend hospitality for you and up to 3 guests.

Full In-house management, sponsorship introduction and representation from Tony Gilham and Team HARD. as part of our full driver development programme.

This Scholarship is open to anyone over the age of 16 with a senior race licence (no upper age limit) or anyone without a race license that holds a full UK driving license to try and find the next racing champion. However, if you currently hold a race licence please call to discuss your eligibility.

Tony Gilham of Team HARD, said: “I’m very proud to launch our 2018 competition. The previous Scholarship went very well and we found some amazing talent and so signed several drivers 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.”

The VW Racing Cup is a perfect stepping stone to move up the saloon car racing ladder at we now have the complete journey available in house at Team HARD. Racing.
