Adam Lucas, Director of RaceDriver.me, said: "This is the chance for those who dream of being on the grid at the very highest level of UK motorsport and may not have had the opportunity to showcase their talent. RaceDriver.me gives them this opportunity."

To maintain a level playing field, those who have race experience will be assessed on a higher standard of criteria, meaning that those working through the rounds do so on merit. No other scholarship provides this level of prize, fairness and value with round one costing just £199.

Entrants can sign up today or find out more information at www.RaceDriver.me
