O’Hara selected for FIA Excellence Academy
Kildare’s Kevin O’Hara has just this week been invited to attend the European Selection event for the FIA Institute Young Driver Excellence Academy. Taking place in Teesdorf in Austria, the initiative is run by former Formula 1 driver Alex Wurz and former World Rally Champion Navigator, Robert Reid.
Running from Sunday 21st to Wednesday 24th of July, the intensive event will test the strengths of all its invitees including areas such as fitness, professional development, team and interpersonal skills, car control and driving ability.
Speaking just after being informed of the invite, Kevin added how much of an honor it has been to be invited, “I have to say it’s an honor to be selected by the FIA to attend and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”
Kevin returns from Austria just in time to compete in the next rounds of the Northern Ireland Formula Ford Championship in Kirkistown on Saturday 27th July.
