Hot on the heels of his stunning debut success in the recent Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona race, Full Contact client Seb Morris has today been announced as one of 2017’s intake of BRDC SuperStar drivers.
The British Racing Drivers Club founded the programme in 2008 under the auspices of then Chairman Damon Hill and programme director Tim Harvey. Over 60 drivers have since benefited from the guidance the BRDC SuperStars scheme has to offer. Graduates include Formula One drivers Jolyon Palmer, Max Chilton and Will Stevens as well as British GT champion Jonny Adam and 2013 British Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan. Numerous others are now enjoying professional careers as factory-backed drivers. Seb is now one of just 12 hand-picked SuperStars who receive extensive support and guidance from the BRDC on their physical and mental fitness, communication and media skills and all aspects of professional racing driver development.
Commenting on the announcement, Seb said “It’s been a long journey to get to where I am and I‘ve worked hard to get the drive this year. To have the phone call from Tim before Daytona telling me I was going to be joining the Superstars scheme gave me extra confidence going into the race. I’ll definitely be taking advantage of the access the programme gives me and will be calling Tim. I’m at the time in my career where I’m getting opportunities coming my way so I can benefit from the expertise and experience of the BRDC members as they’ve already been there so I can learn from them.”
