It's Official!!! He's in!
Perry was selected to drive in Volkswagen’s Jetta TDI Cup. He was one of 30 drivers selected out of 3,900 total applicants. Richardson, 23, will race in at tracks in VW’s throughout the United States and Canada this upcoming year.
This past week a group of 57 finalist endured four days of evaluation at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. They raced karts, autocrossed (racing through a cone course), took written tests and spoke for VW’s cameras that are documenting the series for an upcoming television special on the SPEED channel.
The first race of the season will take place in mid-April.
Series Information :
30 young drivers racing in identical Clean Diesel racecars (they use only 3 tanks of gas in an entire season!) as they compete to win $100,000 in the world’s first green racing series. Watch as these aspiring amateur
racers put it all on the line. From a 16-year-old karting champ to a 26-year-old Iraqi war vet, proves there’s as much drama off the track as there is on it. The series will take place over eight races across the country.
Wish Perry Luck! And, if you are interested in learning more or even getting your company's name on his car, please feel free to contact:
