James Reilly Fiesta Junior scholarship

The Fiesta Junior scholarship being offered by JamSport Racing is an impressive package for a fully funded season in 2022 which includes: 

  • Full team support
  • Race entry fees
  • BRSCC membership & championship registration
  • Season supply of Goodyear tyres
  • Hire of race winning car
  • 1-1 driver tuition
  • Re-prep labour between meetings
  • Friday test days

The competition to win the scholarship is split into 3 stages, with the first stage scheduled to take place at Blyton Park on 11th December 2021. 

Disaster almost struck when I was unable to travel to Blyton that weekend after getting COVID, but I was very grateful to be offered a second chance to compete on 8th January 2022 when I took part in each of the following assessments:

Fitness Test

A range of exercises designed to assess strength, stamina and overall levels of fitness.

Media Interview

An interview recorded on camera with questions of the type that could be asked post-race.

SIM Sessions

Timed laps around Silverstone National circuit in wet and dry conditions, observed and assessed by an instructor.

Driver Assessment

Sessions of 15 minutes each out on the Blyton Park circuit with an instructor.

As you can see from the video, it was a VERY wet afternoon at Blyton Park – so ultimately I was pleased to keep the car on the circuit during each of my 15 minute sessions.  Despite being cautious, instructor feedback while I was driving was positive and gave my confidence a great boost.
