France to host the world’s top amateur drivers Monday, January 25, 2010 – by John Manzi, for the North American Amateur Drivers’ Association

Monticello, NY — The 2010 World Cup of Amateur Driving will be held in France, July 19 through July 25, 2010, and once again the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA) will be represented in the prestigious international driving competition.

The events will be contested in Paris, with at least 12 countries participating.

“During the last World Cup, which was held in 2008 at six different American racetracks, the French did send two reps over to the USA, even though they did not have a participant who qualified to compete in the event,” NAADA President Joe Faraldo said.

“They sent people here to see the excellent work of the track operators and horsemen in Illinois, New Jersey and New York, and then they planned some of their programs after the U.S. models. It turned out to be a great compliment to the work of all in our sport who showed our own brand of hospitality to our invading guests.

“Now, during the upcoming months, NADDA will be looking for the appropriate gentleman or lady to represent us in the City of Lights this year.”

Participants

The United States, New Zealand and 10 FEGAT – Nations  plus France, as an organizer of the World Cup 2010, are qualified to race.
