MSA nominates Williamson for FIA Institute
30 September 2011 – Scotland’s Lewis Williamson is one of two drivers to be nominated by the MSA (Motor Sports Association) as a candidate for the FIA Institute Young Driver Excellence Academy. The MW Arden GP3 driver’s name has been submitted along with that of dominant Formula Renault UK driver Alex Lynn.
Both Williamson and Lynn are already members of the MSA’s Team UK scheme, with 21-year-old Williamson having progressed from Formula Renault to GP3 before winning in the Silverstone Sprint Race and finishing sixth in the championship.
“This year has been only the first for Alex and Lewis on Team UK, but both have already demonstrated the maturity and focus needed to take the next step in their development as potentially world class athletes,” says David Brabham, former Formula 1 driver and MSA National Race Coach.
“They will be vying with some of the world’s best young drivers for a place on the FIA programme, but I am sure that they will acquit themselves well.”
