Team BRIT set to put new drivers to the test in first ever ‘Rookie Day’

Team BRIT is holding its first ever Rookie Day in August, set to test out new drivers who are interesting in becoming part of the team.

The team is aiming to make history by becoming the first all-disabled team to compete in Le Mans in 2020.  To do this, they are taking part in the Fun Cup Championship this year to enable their current four drivers to gain experience in endurance racing.  After this they will progress to GT4 and GT3 series.

As the team’s current drivers move up the motor sport ladder, new drivers will be welcomed into the team ready to take on the Fun Cup in 2018.  Some of these drivers will be from the charity KartForce, which supports injured military personnel into endurance karting, others will be from all areas of life, but share a passion to race on equal terms with able-bodied drivers.

A Rookie Day is therefore being held on Monday 21st August at Brands Hatch to allow potential new recruits to test out the team’s cars and world-leading hand control technology and to demonstrate their skill on the track.

Team Founder Dave Player said, “We’re really looking forward to our first ever rookie day next month.

“A range of significant developments are underway for the team which are set to support out journey over the next few years.  This means that our plan to create a sustainable model, regularly welcoming new disabled drivers into the team to begin their own journey in motor sport, will be realised.

“We’re working closely with military and civilian drivers to identify the next round of Team BRIT talent and look forward to seeing them impress us at Brands Hatch soon.”

Details of successful new recruits will be published after the Rookie Day in August.  For more information contact Dave Player via email: info@teambrit.co.uk.
