Daniel Abt prevails in the 'Deutsche Post Speed Academy'
Deutsche Post is an important motor-racing promoter. The globally active company is particularly involved when it comes to promoting young gifted drivers and does so - inter alia - by dint of its series partnership with the ATS Formula 3 Cup. Furthermore, the company also has got its own young-driver promotion programme, the 'Deutsche Post Speed Academy'. Here, Daniel Abt currently delivers in particularly impressive style.
In 2010, the Deutsche Post Speed Academy driver line-up comprises - for the first time - seven young motor racers. In the battle for the win in the first of four scoring periods, the seven motor-racing talents fought hard, in the past weeks. The first position - and the €25,000 cheque for the win - was secured by 17-year old Daniel Abt but it has to be admitted that he prevailed with an extremely narrow lead. The young gun from Kempten also secured the overall win in last year's Deutsche Post Speed Academy.
After having made the step up from the ADAC Formula Masters to the ATS Formula 3 Cup, Daniel Abt succeeded in establishing in the fastest German single-seater series right away. Thanks to his good performances, the rookie now even must be regarded as one of the favourites. With six of the 18 rounds of the season contested, Abt currently holds second position in the championship, one point ahead of third placed Dane Kevin Magnussen. The Cup newcomer failed to celebrate a race win, to date, but thanks to four podiums, two pole positions and two fastest race laps, Abt may be happy with his achievements to date, nevertheless.
Just like Daniel Abt, Nico Monien also is a Deutsche Post Speed Academy driver. So, the ATS Formula 3 Cup is represented by two drivers, in this important young-talent promotion programme. .
Just as it was the case in the past, an extensive practice and education programme once again represents an important part of the Deutsche Post Speed Academy, in 2010, with the topics of the special workshops ranging from public relations to special technology knowledge. And the performances in these areas also are accounted for by the jury when it comes to rating the Deutsche Post Speed Academy young-guns.
