Renault UK Clio Cup Racer Gelzinis Chosen for FIA Institute
| 25th Jul 2013|
Renault UK Clio Cup racer Ignas Gelzinis has claimed the single guaranteed European place on this year’s FIA Institute Young Driver Excellence Academy, after impressing judges Alex Wurz and Robert Reid in an intensive on-track shoot-out.
The 22-year-old, from Kaunas in Lithuania, was one of six drivers chosen from a group of 25 young racers all put forward by their respective National Sporting Authority to take part in the decisive challenge where he starred.
“The quality of the intake for this year's European selection event has been so high”, said former FIA Formula One World Championship racer Wurz, “What was really cool was to see how well prepared all of the drivers were. It was so hard to be a judge on this event…in the end, we have a very fair winner in Ignas.”
