2011 witnessed the launch of The Fujitsu “Cool” Driver Program. Creating the first initiative of its type in Australian motor racing, the “Cool” Driver concept sees Fujitsu providing a grass-roots service to racing car stars of the future – and in doing so – they join the coveted list of ‘blue-chip’ companies, who for so long have been supporters of National ball sports, swimming and athletics.
Devised and managed by Velocity Management Group, this exciting youth development program provides a structured career development pathway for young and aspiring Australian Motor Racing Drivers.
The program is the most exciting young driver development program ever seen in Australia and the inaugural group of eleven drivers consist of seven karters – one from each State of Australia – and four National Formula Ford drivers.
All drivers receive lucrative financial support from Fujitsu General, Australia’s largest and most popular air-conditioning company, as well bonuses for meritorious results. A V8 Supercar testing opportunity will be awarded to the most successful Formula Ford driver, while the karters are vying for a full day’s training in a National Championship contesting Formula Ford machine.
The program’s aim is to ensure a continuous flow of young motor racing stars is evident and is open for all drivers aged twelve and over.
