GINETTA G50 Cup champion Tom Ingram has been selected for MSA Academy’s prestigious Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE).

ASSE, a sports science course backed by government money, targets talented 16-18 year olds with the aim of sculpting them into elite level athletes.

Running alongside their sporting programmes, the course incorporates academic theory and vocational learning.

Ingram, 18, clinched the Ginetta G50 Cup earlier this month.
