From an introduction to the theory of motor racing, to intensive test sessions and races, the newcomers to single-seater racing are taught everything they need to know to mature into competitive racing drivers. At the end of the one-year programme, BMW Motorsport supports the winner of the Formula BMW Talent Cup by sponsoring them to the amount of € 297,500 (incl. 19% VAT) for the following year in a higher-level single-seater racing series.
Over the course of the year, the youngsters will attend up to 13 events, at which they will spend more than 90 hours out on the track, complete about 12 race simulations, and gain an abundance of valuable driving experience. The car used by all participants is the FB02, which is run centrally by BMW Motorsport. This racing car has proven itself to be both powerful and extremely safe in Formula BMW. It also offers the young drivers a lot of set-up options, which they will come across repeatedly throughout their careers.
The Formula BMW Talent Cup is excellent value for money. As well as taking part in the theory courses and race events, the price also includes accident insurance (with excess), hotel accommodation, and the cost of renting Formula BMW team and racing apparel for the season.
“BMW enjoys a long tradition of promoting young and aspiring drivers. That will remain the case,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt in his foreword to the information leaflet on the Formula BMW Talent Cup. The leaflet contains a compact summary of all you need to know about the concept, training content and much more.
