The way to Motorsport

The Porsche Motorsport Junior Programme pursues one goal: train young talents to become professional race 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 race 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 two years.

The selection process

The most successful drivers are nominated by International One-Make Series officials and are then invited by Porsche Motorsport for a common assessment event.

Over the course 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 complete the picture, the young drivers also participate in fitness, endurance and mental tests.

The winner is sponsored as Porsche Junior in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
Candidates can only be nominated through the organization of the International One-Make-Series - it is not possible to apply for the programme.
