Geely Group Motorsport launches development driver program in Asia

2022/03/10

The Geely Group Motorsport Development Driver Program (GDDP) has been launched; a program designed to support junior drivers in Asia.

"We have launched this program to create a viable opportunity for young talents in Asia to take their step into professional motorsport," Chen Jun, Commercial Director of Geely Group Motorsport in China.

"We have seen drivers like Ma Qing Hua and Zhang Zhi Qiang claim impressive results with the customer teams of Geely Group Motorsport and with this program we are creating the conditions for a new generation of talented Asian drivers."

The GDDP program will be headed by experienced drivers Ma Qing Hua, who is racing in the WTCR for Lynk & Co Cyan Racing this year, and Zhang Zhi Qiang, who claimed the 2021 TCR Asia title with Shell Teamwork Lynk & Co Racing.

Entrants of the programme will get to drive several models of Geely Holding through a series of tests in cooperation with Shell Teamwork Lynk & Co Racing, including the world title winning Lynk & Co 03 TCR race car.

Eligible drivers must be born between January 1st 1987 - December 31st 2002, be a resident in China mainland, Hong Kong, Macau or Taiwan and carry national B level racing license from CAMF.

The final two winners of the program will get to drive in a yet to be revealed Asian touring car series in 2023 with GDDP.

For further information to enter the program, contact yan.xiao@geely.com before March 24th.
