Drivers of the Italian team racked up all three race wins
The third edition of the Team Canada Scholarship will grow to include two young Canadian drivers.
The focus will continue to be the world renown Formula Ford Festival held at Brands Hatch, England in late October. After a very successful debut in 2011 with the first Canadian on pole for the final and leading the early laps, the program continued in 2012 and once again showcased the talent that Canada has in the junior formula car ranks.
In the 2013 season, the race calendar of the planet’s most competitive young-gun series will comprise 10 race weekends in six European countries.
The season will be kicked off as early as on 23 and 24 March in Italy, with the season finale (26-27 October) being held in France. The hopeful Formula 3 talents will race in the support programme of WTCC, WEC and DTM races at tradition-rich motor-racing venues that always are attended by big crowds.
