Hoonigan and FIAT Brand North America want to know if you think you’ve got the chops to be their next great young driver. Last year they found “The Next Great Female Driver.” This year’s competition is going to search for the next great Hoonigan personality/driver.

 

The Chosen Few Will Be Challenged in Several FIAT Cars

Over a number of episodes, the candidates will go through multiple driving challenges in various models. The final challenge will put them in the manufacturer’s factory-built race car, the Fiat 124 Abarth Rally Car. Along the way, other challenges will be undertaken in other Abarth models, such as the Fiat 500 and Fiat 124 Spider.

These challenges will be broadcast on both Hoonigan and FIAT social media channels. Because last year’s search that found Canyon Lake, California’s Sara Price was so popular, this year’s search will crown both male and female champions.

Video entries are being accepted now at HoonigansWanted.com. From all entries received, judges will select ten people who will be given the chance to be the next Hoonigan driver. Rhys Millen will be one of the celebrity team captains and drivers. Over five episodes, candidates will be judged on characteristics such as team work, wheel skill, stunt driving, pit duty, time-attack trials and stunting driving, just to name a few, in the three cars. A Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, track-ready and specially-modified by the team at Hoonigan, will be awarded to this year’s grand champion, who will be announced in September. Check out Hoonigan’s YouTube channel to watch the build.
