Birel ART with Richard Mille is delighted with the launch of the Richard Mille Young Talent Academy, aimed at identifying drivers with significant potential, and offering them a real bridge between karting and single-seaters through the entire network within the Birel ART group.

The free selection days open to Birel ART drivers from all over the world, is the industry’s great first, that will afford the winner to win a full season in the FIA French F4 Championship.

Since its creation in 2001 the prestigious watch brand Richard Mille has partnered with famous sportsmen like Rafael Nadal (tennis), Bubba Watson (golf), Alexis Pinturault (skiing) as well as racing drivers Alain Prost, Sebastien Ogier, Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean and Charles Leclerc, among others.

“I am a true sports enthusiast,” says the Founder. “In particular, there is a strong synergy between the watches we manufacture and motor racing. I am delighted that our company has the opportunity to play an active role in the emergence of young talent alongside Birel ART.”

The Richard Mille Young Talent Academy does not lack originality, thanks to the involvement of Birel ART’s worldwide distribution network, the operation will offer twenty or so young kart drivers from around the world the opportunity to try their luck in single-seater cars for free. All that is required to participate is to drive a Birel ART, a Ricciardo Kart or a Kubica in competition and to be selected by an importer.

While this extraordinary detection operation will begin this very year. At the end of the season, the Richard Mille Young Talent Academy will bring together the candidates at the Paul Ricard circuit at Le Castellet.

The contenders will spend two days being evaluated on their physical and mental abilities, as well as their driving skills in FIA F4 single-seaters.

A panel, comprising specialists, will then designate the winner, who will have the opportunity to launch his driving career by competing in the 2019 FIA French F4 Championship, an exceptional opportunity to take flight toward the summit of motorsport.
