Peugeot has launched a racing driver recruitment program under the 208 GTi Racing Experience Campaign. They are putting together a team to race a 208 GTi at this year’s Nurburgring 24 Hours race, and apparently need a few cheap drivers!
They are asking drivers in eight European countries where they reckon the Peugeot 208 GTi is going to be popular, including United Kingdom, Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland. You register on the Internet, and if elected, will go through a selection process.
There are a couple of rules, of course. Drivers from 18 years of age, who hold a valid full driving licence and have held a national (Grade A) or International Race Driver Competition Licence for at least two years. To participate in the national pre-selections, which will take place between 18th and 28th February 2013, candidates must be among the first 400 to register (for each country concerned).
Here’s where you register: www.208GTiracingexperience.peugeot.com
The eight winners will gain familiarisation with the Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit during the first three races of the VLN championship, between 23rd March and 27th April 2013, and then drive the new 208 GTi Peugeot Sport in the Nürburgring 24 Hour Race 2013.
