Road to Racing, Kartplex, and Area 27 to Host Open Shootout for Scholarship to Jaques Villeneuve’s Feed Racing School in France

Road to Racing, a Canadian motorsports amateur athletics association, has partnered with Kartplex and Area 27 to host an open shoot out for young Canadian karters to win a scholarship to Jacques Villeneuve’s FEED Racing school in France, valued at approximately $18,000. The two-day shootout will take place on May 13-14, 2023, and will provide a unique opportunity for young racers aged 14 to 19 to showcase their skills and potentially secure a life-changing experience.

Karts will be provided, and each driver will have a chance to practice and have several sessions to lay down laps in each of the six available karts. The quickest driver will receive the scholarship to attend the FEED Racing school with an opportunity to win a full F4 scholarship in 2024.
