As young single-seater or sports car drivers find the passage to a professional racing career ever more financially challenging,
Drivers of any age entering
With a prize fund of £60,000, and £35,000 awarded to our top 2018 Rookie, we’re ensuring UK racing talent has a chance to shine and isn’t held back because of financial barriers.
The Rookie Championship will operate its own separate points table within the championship but Rookies will also compete within one of the championship categories: Professional, Professional-Amateur or Amateur, thereby gaining the opportunity to win even more prize money from these respective classes.
At the end of the season, substantial cash prizes are available dependent on the drivers’ finishing positions in the championship:

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From 01 September 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 01 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
