Four week winter series driver ‘bootcamp’ based at circuits in California and Nevada has been launched by ERA Championship, first electric junior formula race series.
There are 12 driver spots available to drive F4 equivalent racing, powered by 24kWh battery and 130kW motor (175hp), that can be able to reach the top speed of 210 km/h and overall winner will receive a full scholarship to race in ERA Championship Summer Season in 2022.
A four week winter series bootcamp will take place in January 2022.
The winter series will be a closed bootcamp format, featuring four weeks of testing, training and racing and young drivers looking to step up from karting into single seaters or gain experience of racing in all-electric machinery.
All drivers will get a significant amount of track time including 6 races with the ERA “Mitsu-Bachi” F110e, an equivalent level to traditional F4, with the winner of the series earning a full scholarship to race in ERA championship Summer Season in 2022.
The bootcamp also includes driver coaching, testing and training with race performance analysis and feedback from industry-leading engineers, plus media training & sponsorship workshops and a dedicated fitness & nutrition programme – key factors in preparing for a professional racing career.
The series will be filmed for a documentary, with full details being announced in due course.
Beth Georgiou, ERA Sporting Director said:
The demand for an all-electric single seater programme for young drivers is high and with Covid-19 disrupting much of the motorsport calendar in the last 12 months, we decided that establishing this winter series in a bootcamp format allows us to offer drivers the opportunity to go racing and get the experience they want, under the guidance of world-class drivers, coaches and engineers, while also having a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We will be pleased to offer the winner of the series a full scholarship to race in ERA championship Summer Season next year, armed with four weeks of intensive training and race experience.
Registration is now open for the ERA Driver Bootcamp via the championship website at https://www.erachampionship.com/
