Motorsport.com today announced plans for two incentive-based driver contingency programs in support of its content partnership with 2016 MAXSpeed Entertainment karting events.

Motorsport.com will host both the “Motorsport.com MAXSpeed Award” and “Motorsport.com Emerson Fittipaldi Driver of the Year Award” in recognition of individual performances throughout the race season.

“Karting is the base; the best road to Formula 1, NASCAR, etc. It is the way all great champions start, and it’s important to me to see the sport of karting continue to grow,” said two-time Formula 1 champion Emerson Fittipaldi. “Having Motorsport.com and MAXSpeed come together seems like a natural fit to help achieve that goal. To see young drivers follow their dreams is a pleasure, and I am proud to be associated with, and have my name on the Driver of the Year Award.”
