GB4 star Burgoyne selected for FF Corse GT Driver Academy

13 June 2024

GB4 front-runner Harry Burgoyne has been selected to be part of the inaugural FF Corse GT Driver Academy.

The internationally acclaimed Ferrari GT racing specialist has launched the scheme to help guide drivers targeting professional careers within the sport.

Its selection saw nine drivers whittled down from a high-quality list of candidates, which included Karting World Championship front-runners.

Burgoyne has made a clear step in performance in his second GB4 campaign this year, taking regular podiums and has led the championship for KMR Sport.

While remaining in GB4, Burgoyne is set to benefit from his selection with the opportunity to test FF Corse’s Ferrari GT machinery as well as media and commercial training, fitness assessments and engineering guidance, plus time on state of the art simulators at iZone.

“We’ve launched the FF Corse GT Driver Academy to support and provide a credible path to a professional racing career,” said the Programme’s Manager Phil Bennett.

“This is very much about discovering and nurturing the GT racing stars of tomorrow, and GT3 racing in particular has become a very interesting category, both commercially and from an engineering/sporting point of view. We want to help drivers gain a foothold by becoming involved early and shaping their careers.

“We have some very exciting talents amongst our first nine drivers and look forward to working with them in 2024 and helping them develop as athletes and individuals."
