During the Karting Clinics, 20 scholarships will be awarded to the most qualified kids, which will see them race in the 2011 Castrol Champions of the Future Series. The series puts these juvenile racers on a level playing field as they race wheel-to-wheel on identical go-karts for a spot on top of the podium where trophies will be presented to the top three drivers. At the end of the four-leg race series, the overall champion will be given a scholarship package worth P100,000 from the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP) to run at the National Karting Series under the apprenticeship of multi-awarded racecar drivers JP and Mike Tuason.
“We would like to see the number of young karters to flourish through this grassroots program. Our goal is to create the next batch of Filipino racers that can reach the Formula 1 dream” said JP Tuason, TRS President.
Clinic Costs are subsidized by 60% and will only cost P3,500 per day. Best drivers per clinic will be given scholarships to race in 2011.
The scholarship program is presented by Castrol, AAP, Alaska, Pena Motorsports, AUTS Racing, Bridgestone, PUMA, OMP, Jaguar, Lifeline, Carmona Race Track, Timezone, Trapik.com, Kzone, and Top Gear Philippines.
