Applications are open for the next AASE programme – a two-year course for drivers aged 16-18, delivered by the Motorsport UK Academy in conjunction with Loughborough College.
Now in its tenth year, AASE is vital to any young driver serious about achieving success in motor sport. It develops young athletes, providing the underpinning knowledge of what it takes to achieve success in the sport, while providing an accredited qualification from a college that understands the needs of potentially elite athletes.
“The AASE programme is a real must-do for drivers looking to forge a career out of motor sport. The coaches Motorsport UK have chosen are the best around. Adding preparation, time management, career planning, nutrition and many more strings to your bow is a real bonus. Being part of AASE and picking up this knowledge has helped me so much in the BTCC and everything we covered on the programme has become increasingly relevant to my career. It costs you nothing but your time and commitment, so why wouldn’t you sign up?” Tom Ingram, AASE Graduate
The full programme framework will run for two years, beginning in September 2019 and will be based around four-day sessions twice a month at Loughborough College. Athletes also work with Porsche Human Performance and attend workshops at iZone Driver Coaching five times a year.
Much of the AASE programme content aligns with other elements of the Motorsport UK Academy talent development pathway, such as the Team UK national squad, using the same principles of qualified coaching.
AASE alumni include the likes of Jake Dennis, Seb Morris, Tom Ingram, Chris Ingram, Matt Parry, Charlie Robertson and Sennan Fielding to name a few.
