"Road to Champion with Renault Sport F1" Asia Formula Renault Scholarship Program Announced
Renault Sport will provide a scholarship for 2017 Formula Renault Eurocup season worth over a quarter million Euro to the best China/HK/Macau driver of the final three rounds of the Asia Formula Renault 2016 Championship.
By: Black Arts Racing
Kenneth Ma, President of FRD Motorsport, commented: "This scholarship will encourage talented young Chinese racing drivers to further participate in motorsport. This will have a big impact for young drivers, and the recognition from an F1 team will give even more impetus to compete. For Renault Sport it is also an opportunity to develop future Chinese F1 drivers at a grass roots level."
François Provost, CEO of DRAC and Director of Operations, Renault China, said: 'In recent years, there have been very few Chinese drivers who have made it past the junior ranks in motorsport and no Chinese driver has ever competed in a Grand Prix.
Now, the advent of this new scholarship will really put the Asian Formula Renault series on the global motorsport map and back into the ladder towards Formula 1.'
