“Motorsport is difficult to get into even at the best of times. You would be amazed at how many talented drivers we have seen come and go due to budget or a lack of experience and knowledge surrounding the off-track commitments needed to succeed in this sport.

“The HARD. Academy has been set-up to help provide talented drivers with the opportunity to join the family and feed off our experience. This is a great opportunity for talented drivers to learn and use our name as a launch pad into Motorsport long-term.”
