The four finalists will be now go to the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone for assessment, which will include a chance to drive the latest 911 GT3 Cup car. The winner, selected by an expert judging panel, will be the driver showing the best mix of natural talent, potential, drive and commitment.
The winner of the scholarship will follow in the footsteps of 2010 winners Michael Meadows and Euan Hankey, and this year's recipient Benji Hetherington. Both Meadows and Hankey used their Scholarship year as a platform for a title charge this season, while Hetherington has put in strong performances during his maiden Porsche campaign.
The winner will be announced in early November.
