Team Brazil Scholarship
Brazil has always had a close and passionate relationship with motorsport. Over the years Brazil has produced 32 Formula 1 Drivers, collectively achieving 293 podiums and 101 victories.
It's harder than ever for young Brazilian drivers to race outside of Brazil, but we hope to change that by helping talented drivers, giving them opportunities to show their talents to the world. This year, we aim to raise funds to give a driver the opportunity to race at the Formula Ford Festival in the UK. The more funding we get, the more opportunities we can offer and the more drivers we can help. We hope to be able to grow the scholarship over the years to create bigger and better opportunities.
Team Brazil Scholarship has 3 expert judges, Roberto Moreno, Djalma Fogaca and Adriano Medeiros who will be deciding the winner of the Scholarship based on the driver's passion, previous achievements and potential.
Admission to the scholarship is free, drivers must be Brazilian, and aged 16 or older. To enter, fill out our driver form.
We are still looking for more funding, so if you think you can help the scholarship get in touch. We have large variety of marketing options we can provide. We would love to be able to increase the number of opportunities for Brazilian Drivers!
