The World Speed Motorsports Rising Star Awards have been helping young racers move up the open wheel racing ladder for years. In the past the award was presented to talented up and coming racers, and included a free test with WSM.
This year four racers have been awarded a free test day with World Speed and one of those drivers will be selected to receive a scholarship in the 2015 Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear. The scholarship is being funded by VMB Driver Development.
“For over 20 years we’ve been developing young drivers, and graduating them into the upper levels of racing,” stated WSM President Telo Stewart. “We had a very successful 2014 season with the inaugural VMB Scholarship winner (Jaden Conwright) and we are really looking forward to working with VMB and the selected driver in 2015.”
