Porsche - Young Driver Development Programme

Young Driver Development Programme

Our Young Driver Development Programme continues in 2021, providing several key benefits in addition to just financial reward.

The programme reflects a drive to assist talented young drivers as they make their way up the Porsche Motorsport Pyramid Great Britain. In addition to tackling the challenge of financial barriers, the programme takes a more holistic approach to supporting young drivers.

The Young Driver Development Programme will operate its own separate points table within the championship but as drivers are also competing within one of the core championship categories: Pro, Pro-Am or Am, they have the opportunity to win even more prize money.

The end-of-season prize fund for the Rookie category is set at a generous £35,000 and the breakdown is as follows:

1st
£20,000
2nd
£10,000
3rd
£5,000

In addition, an exclusive Tag Heuer Chronograph wristwatch will be awarded to the driver who accumulates the highest number of fastest laps over the season.

In association with Michelin, the Young Driver Development Programme will provide three sets of control slick Michelin tyres plus technical training on how to get the best from them.

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB Technical Team will be on hand throughout the season to offer competitors in the Young Driver Development Programme training and insights into the performance and key dynamics of their 911 GT3 Cup.

Off track, eligible drivers will benefit from a media training session and a bespoke team kit will differentiate them in the paddock.

Similar to the level of support offered for the Porsche GB Junior Programme, there will also be a programme on offer at the Porsche Human Performance Centre. The team in the state-of-the-art Porsche Silverstone facility will provide expert guidance and training in all aspects of physical preparation, from diet to training and reaction times.

To take part in this new programme, drivers will need to be under 25 years of age on 1 March 2021 and cannot have competed in any Porsche Carrera Cup for more than two rounds. They can enter from any of the three categories: Pro, Pro-Am or Am. Drivers must register and participate in all races during the 2021 season to be eligible for the Young Driver Development Programme and end of season prize money.
