Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CENTRAL DISTRICT, Hong Kong - May 27, 2016 - “Road to Champion with Renault Formula One™ Team” is a young driver scholarship program which seeks the best Chinese drivers aged from 16-23 from all around China, including Hong Kong and Macau. Throughout the 2016 Asian Formula Renault Series – China Rounds – the overall winner of last three rounds of those young Chinese drivers (regardless of Class A or Class B) will qualify for the scholarship to race a full season of single-seater Formula Renault Eurocup in Europe for the 2017 season, arranged by the Renault Sport F1 Team.
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.’
