For the FDA a challenge that knows no boundaries

For the FDA a challenge that knows no boundaries

Maranello, 23 January – In 2012, with the aim of promoting young motor racing talent on an international level, Maranello’s Ferrari Driver Academy supported the Panam GP Series, a South American championship run over seven rounds, held in Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile. Handing out the prizes, for this the most important motor sport series in this part of the world, was Luca Baldisserri, the head of the FDA. Baldisserri flew to Panama last weekend to take part in a conference to launch the 2013 series, along with Jose Abed, the President of the FIA NACAM and World Vice-President of the FIA, where he met the young winners from the series, from Ecuador Sebastian Merchan, the Mexican Gerardo Nieto and, from Costa Rica, Veronica Valverde, the first girl to be selected for an FDA course. What she can expect in Maranello, along with her two other colleagues is a week of physical and psychological tests at the simulator and at the Fiorano track. Also supported by the academy is a Winter Series organised by Panamco and Alfonso Toledano, using the Tatuus Formula Abarth single-seaters. The first round takes place in the United States, at Miami’s Homestead circuit over the weekend of 24 February, with a second round at Palm Beach’s Moroso track, again in Florida over the weekend of 3 March. Also taking part in both events will be the latest youngster to come on board at the FDA, Antonio Fuoco. The 2013 Championship will take place on 7 April, again at Homestead.
