The journey so far...
Motorsport has been in my family for generations. There is nothing else that I am more passionate about than my racing career but that wasn't all way the case... it wasn't until about 2017 after racing for 7 years, that I realised this could be more than a hobby for me. I am so grateful for the many many people that have helped me get to this point and I cant wait to see where we can go from here.
Where it all started...
I began racing Karts at the age of 9 in 2010 and I am a 3rd generation racer in my family. I raced all over NZ from 2010 to 2018, also competing Nationally in Australia from 2013 to 2018. I competed in the New Zealand Rotax Max Challenge Championship, the New Zealand Pro Kart Championship, the Australian Rotax Pro Tour Championship and the Australian Kart Championship.
2017 - 2018
The hard work started to pay off.
In 2017, I became the first female in to win a round of the Australian Rotax Pro Tour along with a State Title and battled for the top 3 spots in the Championship all year. In 2018, I finished 2nd in KZ2 at the New Zealand National Championships.
From a hobby to a career
In 2019, I made a major step towards my goal by taking the giant leap out of the elite level of Karting in Australia straight in to a V8 Supercar. I raced in the 3rd tier Supercars series under the guidance of iconic racing identity, Brad Jones and his team at Brad Jones Racing as part of their Junior Driver Development Program.
2020 - 2022
Covid and other things
Despite Covid limiting our racing in 2020, we had some great success. I raced in Super3 and in the Tin Tops category gaining a 3rd place in Super3 and a 1st place in Tin Tops.
In 2021, I made the move into Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge completing 2 rounds before another large Covid break and then finished the year with a round in Carrera Cup.
In 2022 I raced in the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge for a full season, gaining many top 6 finishes and a podium.
My first year in the US
In 2023, I made the step across to America to race in the Porsche Sprint Challenge North American Championship in a 992 GT3 Porsche Cup Car with JDX Racing. I have been selected as one of the 2023 recipients of the Porsche Deluxe Female Driver Development Program scholarship. Thank you to Porsche Motorsport North America, Deluxe, USAC and Yokohama who are supporting this program.
I finished 3rd overall in the Championship. Along the way, I achieved 1 Pole Position and 6 Podiums.
The next step
In 2024, I step up to Carrera Cup North America.
This is an incredibly competitive series, racing at some of the biggest motorsport events in America. Events like, the F1 at Miami, Montreal and Circuit of the Americas, IMSA Petite
Le Mans, Road America, Sebring 12hr and more.
I'm working hard to secure the funding I need for this big step and hoping to find to great sponsors/partners to work with.
