Earlier this week, the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) announced a new Diverse Driver Development Scholarship program. The program will “promote and empower drivers from a variety of backgrounds to participate in IMSA-sanctioned series.”

               IMSA did not disclose how many contracts were involved in the new program, but one document suggests at least six different legal documents were required to bring this new program to fruition. Depending on the driver’s chosen series, recipients of the Scholarship will receive “upwards of $290,000 in financial and product support in the first year,” and an additional discounted entry fee for an IMSA series for the recipient’s second year in the Program, along with other contributions from IMSA partners.

               According to the Program’s website, the application deadline is Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at 11:59:59 pm (Eastern), and can be found here. The Terms and Conditions associated with the program can be found here. As always, Berger Law recommends you review these Terms and Conditions carefully, and if you have questions about the document, to consult with an attorney.
