Sandy has been selected for The Arden Young Racing Driver Academy, something that Sandy can be extremely proud of. The YRDA is a Motorsport Academy focused on identifying and developing young racing driver talent and providing a pathway from karting into single seater racing. Arden was founded by former British Racing Driver Christian Horner and his father Garry Horner at the start of 1997. Competing in the FIA F3000 Championship, Arden had immense success winning the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Team Championships. Arden continued its strengths in the GP2 Series, the successor to the F3000 Championship and also expanded into new categories in 2010 competing as MW Arden and as Arden Caterham in World by Renault Championship in 2012.

"The three attributes that I look for in a driver are pace, race craft and temperament. All of the YRDA members possess these qualities in abundance and we expect great things of them both this season and in years to come"
Steve Hutchinson: Director - The Business of Sport

"The Young racing driver Academy is all about mentoring, managing and marketing the stars of the future and providing a structured pathway for them into single-seater racing. With the right guidance and support we firmly believe that all of the young drivers that we are working with will have a great future in motorsport"
Jamie Horner: CEO - The Business of Sport

“It’s a great opportunity and I am really looking forward to working with Arden and the other parties involved. It will be exciting to see what this season brings and I hope it will help me advance in my motorsport career”
