In 2012, 18 race and rally drivers were selected by the Academy. They once again benefited from the expert tutelage of Alex Wurz, former Formula One driver and two-time Le Mans winner, alongside Robert Reid, former World Rally Champion.
The Academy gives opportunities to emerging, talented young drivers to develop the skills necessary for a successful career in motor sport, with a particular focus on safety. Participants graduate from the Academy equipped to become qualified road safety instructors and pass on their understanding of the highest standards of road safety.
Central to the Academy’s success is the participation and support of every FIA National Sporting Authority (ASN). They ensure that the most talented and deserving drivers across the world have access to the initiative.
