Driver development programmes to meet all career targets

Behind the wheel

We mastermind driver development programmes in four motorsport categories. Our holistic approach is totally unique and allows us to offer cross-discipline training to accelerate the learning process and give drivers the varied skills they need to succeed.

Global Racing Group is proud to run a four-car team in the F4 US Championship.

This FIA-certified series provides a professional environment in which aspiring single-seater racers can hone and develop their skills, as well as earn points towards achieving their FIA Super Licence.

Open Wheel

Global Racing Group provides bespoke driver development programmes for talented youngsters that want to pursue a career in sports car racing.

Our affiliations to the factory-backed Heart of Racing Porsche team in IMSA and the Ferrari Challenge series allow our drivers to spend time with and forge closer links with high-profile, experienced teams in their racing category.

GT

Global Racing Group’s relationship with North America’s most prestigious and professional rallyschool, DirtFish, allows us to provide the best driver development programmes for competitors that want to stand out on the world’s asphalt and gravel stages.

This proud affiliation allows our drivers to be integrated into the international rally and rallycross programmes that DirtFish is associated with – an initiative that greatly helps skills development and category understanding.

Rally

As one of the fastest-growing forms of motorsport, thanks largely to its newly-awarded world championship status, rallycross is at the heart of Global Racing Group’s driver development activities.

Our affiliation with DirtFish allows our drivers to learn the unique driving skills that are required to race successfully on mixed-surface tracks. And spending time with the official DirtFish team in the Global Rallycross Championship (GRC) helps our drivers to understand what’s required to be successful in this unique category of motorsport.

But there’s more to winning than driving
 

Outside the cockpit

Global Racing Group drivers have to understand the ‘business’ of motorsport if they want to be successful and credible. Our unique leadership and management training delivers this awareness and associated skills.

Today’s world champions are finely-tuned athletes that can cope with both the physical and mental demands of competition. We give our drivers the professional knowledge and skills to be able to meet this requirement.
