Feed Racing. This is called a program aimed at helping young drivers on their way to Formula 1. But what distinguishes this initiative is that among its leaders is the Canadian Jacques Villeneuve, champion of the Maxima in 1997.
French is also involved in this project Patrick Lemarié, who ran in F3000, The 24 Hours of Le Mans and CART in the United States.
Feed Racing aims select boys and girls from 14 to 20 years old from different countries without previous experience in monoposts. The one who was selected will play a full season in a reference European championship of F4.
Never before has an F.1 world champion been involved in an initiative to promote talent, regardless of origin, experience and without financial resources being a limitation.
Villeneuve and Lemarié will provide more details of this program next Tuesday, June 4, at the Museu i Center d'Estudis de l'Esport Melcior Colet in Barcelona
