The drivers were selected based on a combination of performances from the 2019 season, previous achievements and the potential to ‘make it’ to the top of their discipline.
The 2020 programme offers exclusive industry insight, specialist workshops, education sessions and bespoke events aimed at developing and improving all round driving ability. The two-year programme will provide individuals with the opportunity to progress and develop both personally and professionally within the sport, in a supportive, high performance environment.
Academy Coach,James Wozencroft said “The Motorsport UK Squad programme offers a great opportunity for a driver to develop their knowledge in all of the factors relevant to achieving their goals in the sport. The industry experts offer real insight into specialist fields that is often not possible to access and so I’m really looking forward to working with the new selection of athletes and helping them utilise this information to become the best drivers they can be.”
The successful BKC competitors selected for this year’s programme are;
Guy Cunnington (British Kart Championships – Senior Rotax 2019)
Jessica Edgar (British Kart Championships – Junior X30 2019)
Louis Harvey (British Kart Championships – Junior TKM 2019)

Competitors Pathway Manager, Katie Baldwin said “I would like to congratulate the selected drivers for their ambition and commitment which has ultimately gained them a place on the Squad programme for 2020. The Motorsport UK Academy will provide beneficial insight, education and guidance to support them in their journey to becoming a professional driver.
