Applications are open for the next AASE programme – a three-year course for drivers aged 16-18, delivered by the MSA Academy in conjunction with Loughborough College.
Now in its eighth year, AASE is vital to any young driver serious about achieving success in motor sport. It develops young athletes, providing the underpinning knowledge of what it takes to achieve success in the sport, while providing an accredited qualification from a college that understands the needs of potentially elite athletes.
“The AASE programme is a real must-do for drivers looking to forge a career out of motor sport. The coaches the MSA have chosen are the best around. Adding preparation, time management, career planning, nutrition and many more strings to your bow is a real bonus. Being part of AASE and picking up this knowledge has helped me so much in my first season in the BTCC and everything we covered on the programme has become increasingly relevant to my career. It costs you nothing but your time and commitment, so why wouldn’t you sign up?”Tom Ingram, AASE Graduate
The full programme framework will run for three years, beginning in September 2017 and will be based around three-day sessions twice a month at Loughborough College.
Much of the AASE programme content aligns with other elements of the MSA Academy talent development pathway, such as the Team UK national squad, using the same principles of qualified coaching.
AASE alumni include the likes of Jake Dennis, Seb Morris, Tom Ingram, Chris Ingram, Josh Webster, Matt Parry, Charlie Robertson and Sennan Fielding to name a few.
Applications close 17 May 2017.
