The MSA Academy has announced that it will be working with the young drivers in the BRSCC’s Fiesta Junior Championship as part of their Performance Master Classes programme, which has been set up to enhance the knowledge of junior race and rally drivers in the UK so that they can better fulfil their potential.
Experienced GT racer, Phil Glew, who is a qualified MSA Academy Coach, will work with the FJC drivers to support their development and to provide a better understanding of what is required to approach motorsport in a manner that would resemble a world class performer.
Phil will work with the drivers in a pre-agreed format to support and provide impartial and independent advice and feedback in all areas of motorsport. Subjects range from – but are not limited to – driving technique and tactics through to the out-of-car components such as fitness, media and sports psychology.
Phil will first meet up with the FJC drivers at the Cadwell Park meeting on 14/15thJune and will then tailor the programme to meet the bespoke needs of each competitor over rounds at Donington park (12thJuly) and Brands Hatch (25thOctober). There is one mandatory presentation on anti-doping which Phil will deliver at Cadwell next month.
Commenting on the news, FJC co-ordinator Julieann Bates said, “This is another major step forward for Fiesta Junior and I’m sure all the FJC drivers will benefit from Phil’s experience. It is great to see the MSA Academy getting involved in nurturing young talent in a practical way”.
