Dubai based GulfSport Racing’s efforts to develop the world’s most cost-effective driver development program have taken another step forward with the announcement of a partnership with Absolute Racing who compete in all major Asian championships and the new for 2018 Formula 3 Asian Championship certified by FIA.
The agreement creates a viable career path from karting through to the highest levels of motor racing and includes a prestigious award for the 2018/19 Formula Gulf Academy Champion of an F3 test at one of the top circuits in Asia.
Graduates from the Formula Gulf Academy program will have the opportunity to further develop their experience at a much higher level with a leading team. GulfSport Racing’s Martin Hope said, “The Formula Gulf Academy is successful because it is no longer possible to succeed in single seater racing without exceptional training and coaching. This partnership is exciting because it provides a perfect next step for our more experienced graduates, whether they choose to follow single seaters or GTs. Absolute Racing will also recommend that promising young Asian racing drivers attend the Formula Gulf Academy winter program prior to joining their F3 team”.
Absolute Racing co-founder Ingo Matter said, “We are delighted to be working with GulfSport as their unique driver development program has successfully provided just the sort of development capability required by young drivers who have moved up to F3 and Porsche GT3 Cup. We look forward working with them in future seasons”.
