The MSA Academy is recruiting for the next intake of the Squad, an exclusive programme for 14- to 24-year-old competitors who have demonstrated potential excellence in motor sport.
The Squad programme is overseen by an MSA Academy Performance Manager and delivered by qualified MSA Coaches. It is primarily workshop-based but the bespoke approach to driver development ensures that more individual support is also available.
Rallycross driver Dan Rooke has been newly promoted to Team UK following two years on the Squad. “The Squad programme is a must for any young driver looking to make a career in motorsport,” he said.
“Since joining the Squad I have acquired many skills that I frequently use on and off the track that have really helped my development and overall performance. The programme has given me a brilliant stepping stone to move further up the Academy ladder and be invited to join Team UK!”
