Lamborghini recruits young drivers for training programmes
Squadra Corse, Lamborghini’s professional motorsport division, is looking for young and talented drivers to partake in its prestigious GT3 Youth and Young Drivers Programmes. The batch of recruits will be trained in order to participate in the GT Series races, as well as act as Lamborghini’s brand new ambassadors.
The car manufacturer has currently handpicked over 40 racing enthusiasts to serve as the trainees for this organised program. The very first training session took place last month, and the second is set to start in October. Each of the sessions include the recruits heading to the Imola Autodrome and putting in countless hours in the Huracan Super Trofeo and Huracan GT3.
In Squadra Corse’s opinion, being a professional driver for this company is not only about being the very best on the track. Therefore, the program includes four “pillars” of training.
The very first section that trainees get involved with is further developing the Huracan and its racing-bred brothers. The recruiters are planned to work with Pirelli and Lamborghini technicians in order to test cars and provide driver feedback for improvements data for the vehicles.
The second section is athletic preparation. Recruiters will be given personal trainers in order to get them fit and in shape for racing. These workouts will be comprised of intense cardio exercise, upper-body sessions, and reflex-building exercises in order to improve mental and physical strength for vehicle races.
In order to develop as credible brand ambassadors, participants are set to head to Sant’Agata Bolognese where they will be taught the company’s values and history within the manufacturers museum. To succeed, they will have to memorize every specification of the entire vehicle model line.
Lastly, the recruiters will have to prove themselves in order to win a place instructing at Lamborghini’s driving school. Of course, only the most prestigious and successful will be chosen for these roles.
This program is of course that of a motor sport’s lover. What’s better than having the opportunity to be trained by one of the leading car manufacturing teams in the world?
