Kalimex, the global distributors of K-Seal, JLM Lubricants and Quiksteel, in partnership with motorsport specialists Mickel Motorsport have launched a brand-new Young Driver Programme.

The aim of the programme is to spot and nurture up-and-coming motorsport talent and help them progress from the junior ranks into senior club motorsport and beyond.

Four young drivers are already signed up to the programme; Luke Simmons (Stocks and UK Legends), Oli Schlup (UK Legends), Luke Ttakoushis (UK Legends) and Wesley Wickens (5 Nations BMW Mini Rallycross Championship).

John Mickel, MD at Mickel Motorsport, himself a multiple UK and world champion commented: "For the last 40 years I’ve been in the driving seat at many races all over the world. I know first-hand just how exhilarating it is and how challenging it can be both physically and mentally. I see this Programme as the ideal vehicle to pass on my experience and to help young racers take their first steps into competitive motorsport. Who knows, we may even have the next champion in the wings!"

Mike Schlup, MD at Kalimex added: "I'm an enthusiastic motorsport fan both on and off the track so it’s fantastic to help these young drivers embark on what could prove to be the most exciting journey of their life. I’m excited to see what they can achieve in 2022 because the early signs are that each one of them has something pretty special and they have incredible potential."
