Goals of the Fran Am Sport North American Driver Development Program:
The FRAN AM Sport North American Drivers Development Program is a step-by- step program dedicated to the achievement of Motor Racing Excellence. In addition to a comprehensive curriculum that leads to acquiring valuable skills necessary for success in the sport, Fran Am Sport awards special prizes for certain levels of achievement within the Fran-Am System.
The FRAN AM Sport North American Karter Award is a preliminary step in the FRAN AM Sport North American Driver Development Program wherein each year, a FRAN AM 1600 with XAP Data acquisition and 17 sets of Michelin tires including 2 sets of Rain Tires, the prize value of US$52,000 will be awarded to the FRAN AM Sport North American Karting Champion. In the further pursuit of his or her racing career, the winner must use the award to contest one of the FRAN AM 1600 regional championships throughout North America and Canada.
The next award in the FRAN AM Sport North American Driver Development Program provides the overall winners of the FRAN AM 1600 USA Regional Championships and the FRAN AM 1600 Canadian Regional Championships with a FRAN AM 2000 with XAP Data acquisition and 22 sets of Michelin tires including 2 sets of Rain Tires for each Champion. These awards of a combined value of US$156,000 will be used in the next step of the driver's racing career-- the FRAN AM 2000 North American Pro Championship Series.
The third award in the FRAN AM Sport North American Drivers Development Program provides the winner of the FRAN AM 2000 North American Pro Championship Series with a paid ride in the Euro Cup Formula RENAULT V6 in Europe (a US$450,000 prize!)
The prizes being awarded above are designed to encourage and assist those drivers who have achieved excellence within the Fran-Am system. FRAN AM Sport believes that any driver capable of winning such an award deserves to be rewarded for his or her efforts and accomplishments. Fran-Am further hopes that all of the winners effectively utilize their award in pursuing and furthering their racing careers.
