Racing Steps Foundation
The Racing Steps Foundation provides sponsorship for young drivers and riders who demonstrate the skills and determination to succeed in motorsport but who lack the funds needed to make their way to the top.
Behind the Racing Steps Foundation initiative is founder Graham Sharp, a successful businessman who is keen to prevent British talent falling by the wayside for budgetary reasons. He is supported by the Foundation's ambassador, John Surtees, whose role includes talent spotting, driver selection and guidance.
Also partnering the Racing Steps Foundation in its bid to guide the young competitors all the way to the top are front-running UK motorsport teams iSport International, Carlin, Fortec Motorsport, Zip Young Guns and Keen Racing Preparations.
Surtees, the teams and other mentors and experts work closely with the protégées to ensure they get all the support necessary to compete at the highest level in parallel with their general education.
The Racing Steps Foundation is Jack's main partner and has supported Jack since 2008.
