ART Grand Prix and FFSA, Fédération Française du Sport Automobile, announced the beginning of a collaboration aimed at the support of young French kart drivers with a wide range of activities both on and off-track.
The goal of the "10-15 Program”, launched in 2009 by FFSA, is to guide young kart racers through one of the toughest phases of their career. The project will feature a long analysis thanks to the Auto Sport Academy's activity, which includes specific physical, technical, psychological and nutrition training. On-track, the kart racers will be followed by a work group that will monitor and guide them through the weekends.
ART Grand Prix is one of the partners selected by FFSA to prepare their young candidates, both as a go-kart racing team and as a well-established way to help them start their open-wheel career.
Nicolas Todt said particularly enthusiastic about the new project. “Art Grand Prix is not only enthusiastic about co-operating with French Federation, but also proud to contribute to the growth of a new generation of highly-talented French drivers... an engineer will explain the importance of data analysis and ART Grand Prix Team Manager Tony Lavanant, who also had a wide experience in go-kart racing, will also be available for advice.
This project is a great opportunity to get in touch some great young drivers with whom we can establish long-term relationships like happened with Jules Bianchi, who entered the Equipe de France FFSA program some time ago".
