Frequently Asked Questions

We love taking our scholarship winning drivers overseas, but we understand that it can be a big decision for families. Therefore, having talked with some of our driver’s parents from past campaigns, we have formulated a number of Frequently Asked Questions, to help you with any concerns you might have as a family.

    As parents, is it an expectation that we attend, or would it be best for us to do the trip on their own?

    One of the aspects of the TCS is to open the idea of being a professional race driver and that means being independent.  Integrating into new environments will be something that will become required as they progress with their careers.  Parents may attend but will be required to stay at an arm’s length to let the team and driver work.

    The two TCS drivers will be staying together, and parents are requested to stay at another hotel.

    What is the responsibility for damages?

    While the race seat is fully funded, the driver will be responsible for damages. It is highly recommended the driver acquires insurance for the event.  Insurance is much more common in England that here at home for the race cars.  The team will assist with the logistical side of this process.

    What are the license requirements?

    The drivers will need to have an international license and letter from the Canadian branch of the FIA governing body.  The TCS will assist with the logistics of this process.

     

    As far as travel to England and then ground transport, how does that work?

    We will work with the drivers to co-ordinate arrival times in England and team founder Brian Graham and Kelly will provide ground transport. They will have a schedule for the TCS team, and several activities will be planned during the week. They will oversee the meeting of the host race team and driver fittings as well as a introduction to the race circuits.  The TCS team will work with the drivers on lodging arrangements but the cost of the is the responsibility of the drivers.

    Note: The TCS will continue to plan events and work with possible partners to alleviate some costs that the drivers will incur such as flights and hotels.
