INFINITI ACADEMY WINNER REVEALED
An automotive engineering student has won the opportunity of a lifetime to pursue a career in F1. 25-year-old James Gourlie, a student of RMIT University in Bundoora, Australia, was revealed as the Infiniti Engineering Academy 2018 Asia and Oceania winner by Renault F1 driver Carlos Sainz during the Singapore GP. His prize is a six-month work placement at Renault F1 in Enstone and a further six months at Infiniti’s Technical Centre Europe.
“This is the place to be,” said Gourlie. “Formula 1 is the cream of the crop.”
