Race Car Experiences is excited to have teamed up with Re:Fuel to bring the 2023 FastTrack to Motorsport Competition, a Gran Turismo style racing simulator challenge that can lead to a motor racing scholarship entry with Team Hard. Our aim is to find motorsport talent of the future.
Once the first year of the championship is completed, Race Car Experiences plans to take the Championship to the national level, using immersive motorsport simulator venues across the UK to discover the next big thing in motorsport.
About the Championship
Who can enter?
Anyone with a full UK driver’s licence can enter, or anyone over the age of 16 with a senior race licence. Novice Race license holders can enter, however as we are trying to help find new talent and remove their barriers to entry, full ARDS License and Championship entrants are excluded from entry.
How do the rounds work?
FastTrack to Motorsport has three qualifying rounds allowing practice and a fastest lap session in different cars and tracks. The top qualifiers with get through to a semi-final and then the finals at each race Sim Centre. Details are provided on their website.
How it works:
As each Sim Centre uses different platforms, their competition format, car and track selection are specifically designed to identify new talent maximising their facilities, while generally following the same multi round FastTrack to Motorsport format.
What happens to the top three drivers from each Sim Racing Centre?
The top three drivers from each Championship Sim Centre will be invited to take part in the track day drive-off at Brands Hatch, worth £2,5000. Race Car Experiences will take them through their paces providing tips and training with professional instructors before a drive-off in the 2021 BTCC spec’d Mercedes A Class.
The selected winner will go forward to compete against other drivers in the Team HARD Racing Scholarship shoot-out. The overall winner of which will go on to compete for Team HARD Racing with up to £150,000 in scholarship.
What can victory lead to?
Last year’s winner of Team HARD Racing’s conventional track-based Scholarship, 17-year-old racing prodigy Daryl DeLeon, has gone on to win the British Endurance Championship in his first season, and has already been promoted to drive for Team HARD Racing in the remainder or this season’s British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).
Daryl will be setting hot laps as benchmarks for competitors in rounds one, two and three of the FastTrack to Motorsport Championship.
