A competition to select two drivers to take part in a year’s paid for “Club Motorsport”.
From all the applicants twelve drivers will be invited to attend a selection and training day where their driving aptitude and personal attitude will be assessed. All participants will get to drive a suitable car on a series of tests designed to assess car control (not speed that comes later). The participants will also be assessed on their ‘determination’, ‘competitive approach’ and ‘communication skills’.
From this group two drivers will then be invited to drive in a series of club AutoSOLO & Autotest events based in the Leicestershire area. All the costs associated with competing will be covered by existing sponsorship.
MARK ALLEN - BRITCAR "DRIVER OF THE YEAR"
He has been awarded "Driver of The Year" by one of UK's most respected National Level race series.
To be acknowledged like this is a huge achievement and highlights how far Mark and the team have come in one season.
Not only that, but Mark now holds his FIA International Race Licence.
He is one of only three disabled British race drivers to do so and the only injured serviceman to hold this level of licence.
Our Chairman watched Mark race for over an hour in the recent 750 Motor Club Birkett 6 Hour Relay race on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in the pouring rain driving the Team Brit Golf.
He ran in 13th place OVERALL out of 70 teams. Great driving worthy of BRITCAR "DRIVER OF THE YEAR".
If you are competing in an MSA motorsport event and have a disability you must have these "D" stickers on both sides of your kart or competition car.
