The way to Motorsport

The Porsche young driver concept is based on two modules sharing the common goal of training aspiring young talents to become professional racing drivers.

The support has been initially granted for one year. During this time, the Porsche junior will go through a training course to become a professional motor racing driver. The curriculum will include physical fitness and stress management. A driving coach will accompany all Porsche juniors over the race weekends, assist in the analysis of data and optimise driver performance on the track. Media seminars, workshops on subjects like vehicle dynamics and assignments at works and customer events form a further basis for a career as a works driver. A team of specialists will provide the Porsche juniors with help and advice in all aspects of their training. In principle, juniors may be supported by Porsche for up to three years.

The selection process

The most successful drivers are nominated by International One-Make Series officials and are then invited by Porsche Motorsport to come together for a screening and testing programme.

Over a period of two days, the One-Make Series pilots will be put through their paces racing around the track as quickly as they can, showing their technical expertise and proving their analytical skills when setting up a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.
In extensive interviews and by observing the candidates in the way they deal with TV and the media, we gain an in-depth insight into the participants.

To round off the overall picture, the young drivers undergo fitness and stress tests.

The winner will be awarded a Porsche Junior contract worth 225,000 euro to compete in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
The candidates can be solely nominated via the International One-Make Series.
