MotorSport Academy South Africa is aimed at helping South African Nationals to compete at a World level in multiple motorsport disciplines, and to also gain further education with the setting up of academic Scholarships. Our view is that as long as you have the dedication and passion then everything is possible, whether you are seen as disruptive, innovative or unique, it is the inner fire of the individuals who can turn a dream into a reality.
MotorSport Academy South Africa is aimed at progressing both Female and Male racers, 2 and 4-wheel, onto the World stage. In addition, the Academy is aiming to also setup a number of business scholarships throughout South Africa and beyond. We believe that we are more than just a Sports Academy, we believe that we can enrich the lives of many in Society by giving them the hope and belief that they can succeed irrespective of their background.
Where we are different is that the entire Academy will be run by South African Nationals. The racers, support personnel, back-office staff, sponsors etc will all be from within the Country. This is the unique approach we are taking, and this is our differentiator. There are many race teams in all disciplines that employ drivers from a specific country and then market themselves in that Country as supporting the racers. In reality this is not the case, and it is just a marketing exercise – we are different! We also do not see why there should be a demarcation between what a Female racer can do when compared to a Male equivalent, our racers will be chosen on two criterion only – their Passion and their Talent!

Where the Academy is initially setup with European and South American staff, within 2 years we want the Academy to be 70% staffed by South African Nationals, and within 3 years this figure to be 100%. We want to empower all areas of the Community, motorsport should not be the privilege of the Male, nor the privilege of the well-educated. We will take people from all Provinces, all areas, and give them the opportunity to succeed in the Academy. We know the talent exists, we know the potential is there given the opportunity, hence our Mantra of ‘Where Talent Meets Opportunity’.
