How did they make it? Jamie Whincup, Nick Percat, Will Davison, Craig Lowndes, Luke Youlden, Cameron Waters, Mark Winterbottom, Jack Lebrocq, Jensen Button, Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber and many more! How did they make the transition from Karts and take those first tentative steps towards a full-time motorsport career?
Have you ever looked at motorsport as a career and thought ‘How do I get my shot?’
When it comes to building a career out of motor racing Greg Woodrow knows more than most. As a champion Karter and Formula Ford driver and now as the importer of Mygale’s race-winning Formula Ford and Formula 3 cars he’s seen many a talented driver come and go.
And he has personally experienced many of the ups-and-downs that can go with a lifetime involved in the sport.
Race Academy will consist of a series of seminars around the country that will aim to educate drivers moving from Karting into circuit racing, and to dispel a lot of the rumours that exist around the move into cars.
But is Formula Ford, FIA Formula 4 or Formula 3 the best category for you?
At our Race Academy seminar we'll explain the differences between the classes, discuss their individual advantages, and give you all the information so you can make an educated, well-formulated choice on what is the best 'next step' for your career.
We'll also explain many secrets regarding how to obtain, and keep, sponsors so you have the best chance at a succesful long-term career in the sport.
Greg Woodrow has been involved in the formative years of many of these driver’s careers so he knows how some have struggled through different stages of their developmental years. Race Academy's aim is to help driver's progress through the ranks in an effort to reach the pinnacle of the sport in Australia and beyond.
