Team Brazil Scholarship
The Team Brazil Scholarship aims to provide opportunities for young Brazilian race car drivers to better their careers. The initial plan is to fund one driver to race in the World Famous Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch in the United Kingdom. The winner will follow in the footsteps of many great drivers, with Brands Hatch being the track Ayrton Senna took his first car victory at. This event has an illustrious history, having so far been won by 3 Brazilians and been a fantastic stepping stone for countless drivers. The scholarship also aims to introduce drivers to influential figures within the sport who will provide valuable insight and contacts to better the driver's career.
