The pathway is the governing body’s programme to help equip the country’s most promising young drivers, and co-drivers, with the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to maximise their performance.
It’s split into various tiers depending on the driver's experience with Mitchell part of the top Team UK category.
Team UK showcases the very best of British talent competing at home and overseas, and features five newcomers for 2022, including World Endurance Championship racer Seb Priaulx, fellow sportscar racer Ben Green, WRC3 Junior Jon Armstrong, FIA Formula 3 and Ferrari junior Oliver Bearman and Louis Foster, who embarks on his first campaign state-side in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship this season.
Hugh Chambers, Motorsport UK chief executive officer said: “Identifying and helping to drive forward the next generation of British talent across all disciplines of the sport is very much a key priority for Motorsport UK, and I’m pleased to welcome the latest intake of talented drivers and co-drivers to this year’s academy programmes.
“Over it’s lifespan, the Motorsport UK academy has been a springboard for many of Britain’s outstanding talent in the sport; Lando Norris and George Russell, now two of Formula 1’s real stars, both developed into the drivers they are today with the programme’s support. Congratulations to all our drivers on their selection.”
