After last year’s search for the next great female racer, FIAT North America and Hoonigan, a motorsport-lifestyle brand, have teamed up for a second straight year to find the next Hoonigan great driver. This year’s competition has been expanded to include both female and male contestants.
Beginning this week, drivers who feel their skills are worthy may submit their video entries via HoonigansWanted.com, illustrating why they should be chosen to be a part of the challenge series.
From all submissions, 10 contestants will be chosen to battle for the chance to join the Hoonigan team. Top finalists will be selected and divided by each of the celebrity drivers and Team Captains.
Over five episodes, the teams will be put through a number of challenges in a Fiat 500 Abarth, Fiat 124 Spider Abarth and Fiat 124 Abarth Rally Car models, testing their skill behind the wheel, team work, pit duty, stunt driving and time-attack trials, to name a few.
“Finalists will have a unique opportunity to showcase their skills in our Italian-designed, fun-to-drive Fiat 500 and 124 Spider Abarth models,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.
This year’s winner will receive a Fiat 124 Spider Abarth track-ready car – modified by the Hoonigan team. Viewers will be able to watch the vehicle build in its entirety via Hoonigan’s YouTube channel on their show Garage Garage.
Stay tuned to Hoonigan and FIAT social channels to watch as the competition unfolds and find out which contestant will ultimately represent FIAT and be the next Hoonigan driver.
