Young Cornish karting star Alex Quinn has attracted the attention of the Arden and TBOS backed 'Young Racing Driver Academy' after his eye-catching performances over the past two years, which saw him become a three time British Vice Champion, Kartmasters Grand Prix Winner and a top performer on the European scene.
The YRDA is a motorsport academy focused on the supporting the development of talented young racing drivers as they make their journey up the highly competitive motorsport ladder.
The YRDA and its partners, which include leading motorsport team Arden, international sports management consultancy TBOS, Spire Perform and Silverstone, will work closely with Alex to hone his on and off track skill set and provide him with the best possible transition from karting into single seater racing.
