CHANCE OF A FULLY FUNDED SEASON IN THE 2018 NATIONAL FORMULA FORD CHAMPIONSHIP… IS HAPPENING AT GBS IN AUGUST…

After a recent visit from James at JMR Scholarship we are pleased to have confirmed the Great British Sports Cars factory as one of the many venues for this fantastic opportunity.

Few words from JMR Scholarship…. It is with the utmost pleasure that we launch the JMR Scholarship. Our goal is to provide the most talented of drivers with the opportunities they need to further their careers in motor sport. Motor racing is a notoriously difficult endeavour for those on a limited budget and the history books are filled with examples of sports men and women who possessed the skills but unfortunately not the funding to make their mark on the sport.

With this in mind, our first scholarship will consist of a fully funded season in the 2018 National Formula  Ford Championship. A hotly contested category year on year, it has proven itself to be a breeding ground for F1 champions, Le mans winners and GT legends alike.

The scholarship will go to whichever person sets the fastest lap time on our simulator racing gear, making this one of the most lucrative qualifying sessions in the UK this year and the most pure form of competition conceivable. For an aspiring racing driver, this is a golden opportunity to take that difficult and expensive first step into single seater racing. With the backing of a winning team and the use of a winning car, the recipient of the scholarship will be given every opportunity to turn their talent into results and further their career.

At GBS on Saturday 12th August or any chosen venue, the competitor will have 30 minutes with which to post the fastest laptime possible around the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit, driving the Formula Rookie car, all within the Project Cars software.

Using the Thrustmaster T300 GT RS steering wheel and pedal set with TH8A manual gear selectormounted to the Playseat Evolution Black, the entrant will navigate the famously tight and technical circuit, drawing on every ounce of skill and experience to eke out every last thousandth of a second. Coupling realistic physics with a lack of driver aids, this is truly a test of driver skill.

The Prize is Entry fees for all 8 weekends of the national Formula Ford championship, One test day before each weekend, Use of a championship winning car and much more.

You can book your place, see all the venues and more details about this fantastic opportunity on their website, please click here. On Saturday 12th August the event is taking place right here at the GBS Factory, where we will be offering refreshments and will also be a chance for you to visit & look around the GBS Factory as well as meet the GBS Team. We are very much looking forward to it, and wish everyone luck on entering this fantastic competition.
