Kitchener, Ontario – Road circuit racing is nothing unusual for Canadian professional race car driver Blake Yoworski, however, the opportunity to demonstrate his driving skills to a group of elite instructors in an open wheel formula car in the United States has given Blake an unexpected career boost.
The 21 year old from Ontario, Canada has recently been invited to the Skip Barber INDYCAR Academy Shootout competition along with 32 other competitors, chosen out of 70 total applicants. The INDYCAR Shootout competition will take place November 6th, 2013 to November 8th, 2013 in Sebring, Florida at Sebring International Raceway.
The chosen competitors will travel to this famous racetrack, which was once a US Military training base, and compete for a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Yoworski said earlier this week, just days after receiving the official phone call about being invited to the competition, “This is an opportunity of a lifetime, something only in dreams. I am willing to do whatever it takes to win the competition and start a racing career. I want to show everyone how far determination and hard work can go.”
The Skip Barber Racing School makes it possible for racers like Yoworski to do this with their programs in place. He also mentioned that he is on a “strict athlete training program, is working with a marketing coach and is traveling to Sebring International Raceway one week prior to practice , get track times and collect technical data”.
The podium finishers (top three) of this competition will receive scholarship funds to continue racing in the Skip Barber Winter Race Series where they are then able to advance further into a higher formula race series such as USF2000. This gives them an opportunity to demonstrate driving skill and earn their way into a racing career versus buying an extremely expensive seat.
If the young Yoworski can win the competition and show excellent driver skill, he could be recognized by teams and marketing partners.
