Young Driver Programme

JRM is fully committed to developing the racing drivers of the future and offers a platform for aspiring drivers to develop their career and gain the recognition that their talent deserves.


Young Driver Programme


To take the first steps towards developing a career with Nissan, JRM selects talented youngsters – who are able to commit the required budget – to join its Young Driver Programme. They then race with Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 customer teams in programmes that are available throughout Europe.

Young Driver Programme candidates can complement their customer team racing activities by paying to join JRM’s Driver Development Programme where they will be able to access all of the benefits associated with this proven mentoring initiative.

Sean Walkinshaw took this route with JRM in 2015 and his successes have led to him being signed as a NISMO Athlete in 2016. The 22-year-old had been racing single-seaters for four years but decided his future was in sportscars.

He joined a Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 customer programme and JRM’s Driver Development Programme at the start of 2015 and received coaching support from JRM PRO driver Craig Dolby.

Sean’s impact was immediate and, in only his second year of GT racing, he has been recruited to an official Nissan programme with Nissan GT Academy Team RJN.

Sean’s successful approach to GT racing proves that talented young drivers now have the opportunity to win the support of Nissan and develop their careers.
