The Motor Sports Association (MSA) and the Racing Steps Foundation (RSF) have announced a three year extension of their partnership.
RSF has supported the MSA as its official ‘educational partner’ since 2009, playing a role in the growth of the MSA Academy and the introduction of Performance Master Classes.
The extension of the contract takes their relationship to the end of the 2015 season, with the MSA holding ambitious plans to overhaul the approach of motor sport towards talent identification and development.
“We are grateful for RSF’s continued support and vision, which initially enabled the MSA Academy to progress and develop in its early years,” said MSA Chief Executive Nick Bunting. “This extended contract will assist the MSA in leading the direction of the sport in this vital area; in the next three years we will see a significant shift in the way motor sport views the progress of its young drivers through the various stages of their careers.”
“Great Britain is a beacon not only of extraordinary technical creativity on the race track, but also outstanding driving talent,” added RSF Founder Graham Sharp. “We are pleased to be able to extend this important partnership with the MSA Academy and look forward to seeing increasing results that will help to sustain this nation’s peerless international record.”
