Castrol Champions of the Future now in search for young racing talents

cof logoKarting has always been regarded as the stepping-stone of racing. Its simplicity and straightforwardness give the perfect opportunity for aspiring drivers to learn the fundamentals of motorsports. Even Formula One champions such as Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton all began their careers driving go-karts. Castrol, in conjunction with Tuason Racing School, is giving kids ages 7 to 13 years old the perfect opportunity to live up their racing dreams through the Castrol Champions of the Future.

The Castrol Champions of the Future is a scholarship program for young aspiring racers who are physically fit with a champion attitude. It is a well-organized, safe and cost effective kart-racing program created to bring out the driving talent in every child. To join, you must attend one of the Karting Clinics scheduled at the venues listed below:

January 16, 2011 - Boomland, Pasay
January 30, 2011 - Carmona Race Track, Cavite
February 13, 2011 - Boomland, Pasay
March 6, 2011 - Carmona Race Track, Cavite

The Karting Clinic is a one-day event with 25 driver slots per weekend. Each driver will be provided with complete racing gear, a racing kart, consumables, instructions, and meals in the event.
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,, Kzone, and Top Gear Philippines.
