Standardbred Canada is seeking nominations for the driver who will represent Canada at the 2022 World Championship for Amateur Drivers.
The multi-day racing event, and celebrations surrounding the Championship races, will take place in Italy between September 16 and 27, 2022 in concert with the centenary anniversary of the Association of Italian Amateur Drivers, founded in 1922.
Standardbred Canada has been asked to nominate an amateur driver to represent Canada in the prestigious event and will do so from the submissions it receives.
The schedule calls for eight to nine races to be held in Italy at three racecourses: Capannelle in Rome, Vinovo in Turin and Visarno in Florence. The World Championship races take place on September 20, 22 and 24 as nations from around the globe will compete.
To qualify, a driver must maintain their amateur driving status and have a minimum of 25 career driving wins.
Any costs associated with the event, other than costs provided by the host, shall be paid by the participant and/or any sponsors that the participant is able to obtain.
Submissions should include your name, location, amateur driving status (i.e., the number of amateur events you have driven in and a statistical breakdown), and any information about how you intend to represent Canada, if chosen.
All information must be submitted by email by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 20 to Hailey Saunders, Program Coordinator, Standardbred Canada.
