The Young Racing Driver Academy (YRDA) was launched in April 2013 by The Business of Sport, (TBOS) a global sports management consultancy - with the aim of providing young drivers with the support required to make it to the highest echelons of motorsport.

The YRDA is a motorsport academy that is focused on identifying, mentoring and coaching young racing driver talent and providing a pathway from Karting into single-seater racing.

YRDA delivers a specialist programme and provides tailored mentoring, marketing and management support to young racing drivers. YRDA and its programme partners possess wide-ranging expertise and experience across the business of motorsport and are perfectly placed to encourage and assist a young racing driver in maximising his or her on and off track potential.
