John Surtees, Founder of Henry Surtees Foundation
- "Henry had his first ever track experience in a
kart at Buckmore at the age of 8 and went on to drive with Carlin
in Formula BMW and Formula 3. The team has been at the forefront of
developing young driver talent and share in success with them. The
days of big test programmes on race tracks in Formula 1 are over.
Today the simulator plays a major part in the research and
development of cars and in giving drivers experience of the car and
circuits. The Lets Race initiative in creating this championship
and opportunity for would-be young drivers is unique. The
opportunity to compete at the simulation centre and the top drivers
to then go to a shoot-out at the famous Buckmore Park Kart Circuit
in order to qualify for further evaluation with Trevor Carlin and
his team in order for the winner to get a full day of testing in a
Formula 3 car, is something that one would normally only dream
Carlin - "Carlin are one of the largest
racing teams outside Formula 1, producing race winners in several
levels of junior motorsport. Feeding drivers into Formula 1,
over a third of the 2014 F1 grid have previously raced with Carlin.
The team has won over 160 races to date and counts drivers such as
Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Max Chilton and Kevin Magnussen
amongst its alumni. The team currently competes in GP2
Series, GP3 Series, FIA Formula 3 European Championship and the
British F3 Series."
