Potential driver candidates must be between the ages of 16 and 26 as of January 1, 2010 and hold a passport from the United States, Canada or Mexico. In addition, drivers entering the series for the first time must not have competed in any professional racing series regardless of location.
Applicants must submit their application along with a season entry fee of $45,000 by December 11, 2009 in order to be considered as a candidate. The entry fee will be fully refunded to those not chosen as a 2010 series driver.
From the driver applications, up to 125 candidates will be selected to attend the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup final driver selection event that will be held on February 7-9 in Las Vegas. This final event will determine the final 25-driver lineup for the 2010 season.
The final driver selection event includes three days of professional driving instruction, autocross competition, track time in a Jetta TDI Cup car, physical fitness training, a sponsorship development workshop, marketing and media training, and Volkswagen brand familiarization.
Each driver competing in the series earns a Pro Racing license from SCCA at the conclusion of the season. In addition to more than $50,000 in prize money at stake during the season, the series champion receives Volkswagen factory career advancement support with a value up to $100,000.
