Armaan Ebrahim selected for Lamborghini's Young Drivers Program
The Young Drivers Program, one of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s four talent programs for youngsters, is starting its third year. For the 2016 season, thirteen drivers aged 26 and under have been selected for the three continental series of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo (Europe, Asia and North America). Armaan Ebrahim from India is one of the selected thirteen.
The aim of the Young Drivers Program is to train youngsters and accompany them along a growth path to become motorsport professionals; not only on track, but also outside the cockpit of a racing car. It includes developing their driving skills alongside factory drivers.
Armaan is the first Indian driver to make it to this list. The program starts with track activities, involving these drivers in the technical development of the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo! With test sessions on track, driver coaching with Lamborghini factory drivers, telemetry analysis with engineers and transfer of their feedback to technicians, the drivers will learn how to work with a precise methodology within a racing team.
Athletic practice, another central pillar of a racing driver’s training, will also be included in the program. Visits to the factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, communication & product training sessions and participation in the Lamborghini Accademia driving courses as instructors are the other highlights of the program.
After the Young Drivers Program comes the GT3 Junior Program which, this year, has doubled the number of participants (compared to 2015). Currently, there are 20 GT3 Junior Drivers behind the wheels of Huracán GT3s, competing in GT championships around the world.
