Positive SimRacing launched the PSR-Driver Development Programme, powered by Virtual Racing School. Eight drivers joined the PSR Blancpain Sprint Series team for two full seasons (2017 S2 & S3), and will receive coaching and tutoring from PSR drivers and VRS coaches. The goal is to have these eight drivers feature in the qualifiers for the 2018 iRacing Blancpain Endurance World Championship Series, under the PSR banner.
Drivers joining the programme were Roque García, Javi Utreras, Nick Rowland, Justin Richesin, Bradlee Haley, Roy Kolbe, Antoine Thisdale and Phil Mishaga.
The programme started in March 14th 2017, and a first victory in the BES was clinched in the first weekend, in Road Atlanta. It was a pomising start for the team.
