Three top international four-in-hand drivers have joined forces to form the Global Driving Team. Michael Freund from Germany, Chester Weber from the United States and Boyd Exell from Australia will represent the Global Team at international driving events.
Similar to the Showjumping teams like Audi and Ericsson, the Global Driving Team aim to increase the popularity of the combined driving sport through improved marketing, greater publicity and media coverage. They also hope to encourage and support up and coming talents in carriage driving and their initiative may result in other teams being formed.
The income of the Global Team will be generated from sponsorship and from sales of Global Team branded merchandise like polo shirts, jackets, etc. This merchandise will be introduced for the first time at CHIO Aachen, Germany, from 25 to 30 June 2002.
