Applications are now open for the 2020 Motorsport UK Academy Co-Driver Programme.

The Motorsport UK Academy Co-Drivers Programme, is a world class development programme that identifies, develops and supports talented Co-Drivers who have the potential to reach elite level in rallying.

This bespoke programme is led by experts Nicky Grist and Paul Spooner, both of whom have competed at the pinnacle of the sport in the World Rally Championship. The individualised programme provides 1:1 performance management and coaching, workshops, expert industry insight and Co-Driver specific education.

Ross Whittock (graduate of the 2016/17 Academy Co-Driver Programme and 2019 European Rally Champion) said; “The Co-Driver Programme allowed me to understand all of the aspects it takes to become a top-level Co-Driver. The experience I was able to draw from the coaches allowed me to progress my skills quickly, and in the correct way, by understanding and learning from their own experiences.  Any young aspiring Co-Driver looking to progress through the pathway should apply to become the best Co-Driver they can be.”
