Driver FAQ

1) Does it cost anything to register to be considered as a Canadian Motorsport Academy driver?

There are no fees to register for the Academy program, but you must where the provided patch for the season on your driver’s suit to be eligible to receive any awards.

2) Do I need to register with CMA to be eligible for the scholarship?

Yes, you must be registered to be eligible to receive the Program Awards. If you are not registered, prior to the final event, you will not be eligible to receive any awards.

3) If I decides not to continue racing, do I still receive the scholarship funds?

To be awarded the Scholarship funds, you must show proof of registration, in an approved series, for the following year.

4) If I don’t finish in the Top Three positions in my championship, am I still eligible for any other support from CMA?

There may be a limited number of ”Rising Star” sections in a season, but this does not equal a position as an “Academy Driver”. It’s just intended to recognize outstanding efforts by a driver and offer you support, to help you try and qualify as an Academy Driver the following race season.

5) If I don’t finish in the Top Three in my championship the year following being designated as an Academy Driver, do I lose the status as an Academy Driver?

No, you will always be considered an “Academy Driver”, but your status will move from an “Active Driver” to an “Alumni Driver”. But you will always be considered as part of the CMA family!

6) Who are the scholarship funds paid to?

The funds are paid directly to you as the driver.

7) What can or do the funds have to be spent on?

It is up to you where you spend these funds, but we encourage you to use them to support your career advancement.

8) Do I have to where the provided driver’s equipment (drivers suit, gloves and boots), that is part of the CMA scholarship package, at all events the following year? What about the CMA wrap on my kart?

Yes, as part of holding and maintaining your scholarship standing as an “Active Driver”, you must where the provided gear and have your kart wrapped with the program graphics.

9) In my senior year of go kart competing, do I have to accept one of the F4 or TCA options available or can I simply take the award funds and go a different direction in motorsport? Or not use the funds in motorsport at all?

You must register for one of the approved series, and provide proof of registration, to receive the awards package. If you choose to not proceed with your racing career, you will still receive the testing opportunity, but not the financial scholarship. This program has been designed to support the advancement of your career.

10) Will I have any media obligations to perform for CMA? And will I be paid?

From time to time, yes, we may require our Academy Drivers to participate in media activities as required. But these will not be paid engagements and will be an extension of the media training you will receive as part of the program.

11) As an Academy Alumni, what will my obligations be in the future to CMA?

From time to time, we may request your testimonial support, media appearances to talk about your experience with the program, and how it helped to advance your career, or other activities that support the advancement of the program.

12) Am I obligated to display any sponsor logos who support CMA on my kart?

As part of the kart wrap graphics, any program supporter’s logos will be part of that wrap and must be displayed. This will also apply to the provided driver’s suit and any supporter’s logos associated with the program on your suit.

The Canadian Motorsports Academy (CMA) will be supporting MIKA and the Mosport Karting Centre as a headline sponsor for the remainder of the 2024 season.

The CMA is the truest form of an Academy specifically for Motorsport in Canada – where its Members are taught all aspects of their chosen profession in motorsports – not just including Drivers, but Engineers, Mechanics, Press Representatives, Marketing Professionals and Team Managers.

However, at this time, the programs main focus is on providing young drivers with the support required to make it to the highest echelons of motorsport. The Academy is focused on identifying, educating, mentoring, and coaching young racing drivers and providing them with a defined and supported pathway from junior supporting classes into professional GT racing.
