Force India Formula One Team has announced the launch of its F1 Team Academy, to identify and promote racing talent in India. The academy will focus on nurturing talent, providing vocational training for a career in motor sport or related industries and specialised academic programmes related to the field of motorsports. In the first year, the Academy's predominant focus will be on unearthing and discovering racing talent while the initiatives in the other two focus areas will be rolled out in a phased manner over the next 12 months. The Academy will launch its first comprehensive initiative, ‘Hunt for 1 from a Billion' on April 25, which will include Regional Trials in seven cities and a National Final. The hunt is proposed to be held every two years and the ten finalists from the National Final will be part of a week-long intensive stint at Silverstone, UK.
