As soon as the race season finishes the GulfSport team head back to the track to commence their summer testing and training program from April to May 2015. As before, this highly controlled environment enables kart racers as young as 14 to take advantage of the opportunity to experience an FG11 single-seater race car and more importantly, be trained to drive it properly. Since the start of the Formula Gulf 1000 championship some four seasons ago, more than 40 drivers have been through this training program and have enjoyed the rare opportunity to learn to drive a slicks and wings Formula car.

This season Formula Gulf has been recognised by the FIA’s National Sporting Authority (ATCUAE) as a Competition Driving School making it the perfect step from karting to the world of single seater racing.
