Women Fitness joins the fast racer for a thrilling conversation!
Prior to joining the Toyota Atlantic series, you raced in several developmental open-wheel series in Britain, including Formula Three, Formula Renault and Formula Ford. In 2000, you were the first woman to achieve a pole in a Zetec race. What attracted you towards auto racing as a career, if you were to sum up in a few words?
I started karting when I was 9 years old… ever since then I love the adrenaline rush, the competition with others, the speed, the focus it gave me, the need to be smart about engineering the car to be fast, and the competition with myself to continue to grow and get better. It’s pretty much my identity at this point.
