Driving talent forward

The Sport


Welcome to the Motorsport UK Academy – a performance pathway for motorsport’s talented young athletes providing the UK’s future stars with opportunities to learn, develop, thrive, and ultimately unlock their full potential.

Over the years, the Motorsport UK Academy has supported hundreds of young drivers in their quest to be the best, with stars such as Lando Norris, Tom Ingram and Elfyn Evans amongst the Academy alumni.

Across the Academy programmes, expert coaches, partners, and staff all work together towards a shared vision of identifying and supporting talented athletes on their motorsport journey, effectively preparing them for the world of high-performance motorsport and beyond. What makes the Academy unique, is that it provides these programmes independently at no financial cost to the athlete, and with no vested commercial interest. The only goal is developing the sport’s best talent.

Whilst only a handful of drivers will compete at the highest level, the Academy makes sure that each of its 100+ athletes leaves the programme having developed their full potential and enjoyed their experience. It is hoped that each driver will then want to remain a part of the sport for many years to come, be it as a competitor, volunteer, or part of a team.

The vision is for the talent pathway to be a part of the strategy to ‘transform the future of motorsport’ in the UK. To do this, our mission is to connect the talent pathway with the wider motorsport community and form genuine partnerships, so we can work together in delivering exciting performance development opportunities.
