The Competition

At any chosen venue, the competitor will have 30 minutes with which to post the fastest laptime possible around the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit, driving the Formula Rookie car, all within the Project Cars software.

Using the Thrustmaster T300 GT RS steering wheel and pedal mounted to the Playseat Evolution Black, the entrant will navigate the famously tight and technical circuit, drawing on every ounce of skill and experience to eke out every last thousandth of a second.

Coupling realistic physics with a lack of driver aids, this is truly a test of driver skill.

The Prize

// Entry fees for all 8 weekends of the national Formula Ford championship

// One test day before each weekend

// Team costs

// Use of a championship winning car

// Fuel, tyres and wear and tear

Included in team costs are professional, championship winning race engineering and session data analysis to improve lap times.

The winner will have the opportunity to cut their teeth in one of the most hotly contested single seater racing categories in UK motor sport. Previous drivers to have excelled in this category include Jenson Button, Mark Webber, Ayrton Senna and many more professional GT and Prototype career drivers.

The prize is one of the biggest and most lucrative prizes in UK motorsport.
