Education educating our future generations

Formula 1000 Junior Rally

The Formula 1000 Junior Rally Championship was founded in 2009 and every year over 50 juniors aged 14 – 17 take part in this professionally managed rally series in Wales, England, Scotland & Ireland.

The Junior Rally Championship is contested over 9 single-venue stage rallies and young drivers compete in 1000cc cars, unmodified aside from suspension and safety equipment. A structured programme of training and mentoring equips the Junior drivers, our stars of the future, with a wide range of valuable skills.

The ethos of Junior rallying is much more than driving rally cars quickly. The drivers are encouraged to become involved in the technical aspects of the vehicles and the sport. The following video, presented, edited and produced by Junior rally driver Kasia Nicklin, was filmed at the Formula 1000 Media Training day.

“It is anticipated than we can progress with electric rally cars from a de-tuned version
for the juniors to drive, then as they become more experienced, we can turn up the power.”

Tristan Dodd, Chairman, Formula 1000 Rally Club
Our Education


  • Build and deliver an inspiring education programme around the eRally project activities and show how electric vehicles can help mitigate environmental damage
  • Ensure the project is continually funded, pushing the technology to its limits and building on the education programme year on year
  • Create a Junior rally championship for all-electric rally cars to involve young people - the drivers of the future, competing in the cars of the future.

eRally has been working with Scottish Education as parts of the project have a close fit with the curriculum for excellence.

“It’s amazing the technology that’s gone into it and the power they can get out of it”

Cameron Davies, British Junior Rally Champion
