Red Bull has launched its 2012 edition of the Red Bull Rookies Driver Search today and announced for the first time since its inception in 2007, the Red Bull Rookies Female Drivers will compete against an all male team.
The brand also introduced the anchor drivers of the female and male teams, Melissa Huang and Mark Darwin respectively, who will lead the teams at the Sepang 1,000Km (S1K) race, which will be held 6 – 8 December 2012.
Red Bull is looking for individuals aged between 18-25 years of age to be selected for the team from Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam and Singapore.
They may register at the Red Bull Rookies Driver Search Roadshows which will offer several activities to test their race craft, fitness, mental acuity, personality, cultural flexibility, media and presentation skills and other attributes.
Another interesting development is the online registration of participants where elements of a FAST FORWARD and a Wild Card Selection Round based on the online community’s selection will enable these individuals to gain access to the later rounds of selection.
After a grueling round of elimination, 2 male and 2 female drivers will be chosen to join Mark and Melissa’s teams respectively.
The programme will train them in the various critical and essential aspects of racing such as physical training, team dynamics, racing techniques and interpersonal skills, leading up to the S1K race.
Singapore Roadshows will be held on 5th-6th May 2012 at Big Splash (East Coast Park) and 12th -13th May 2012 at Velocity Novena.
