Zoe Wenham has been karting for years and now steps up to make her car racing debut in Saxmax for 2008.
Anna has been keeping a watchful eye on Zoe’s racing career for the last few years:
“I have seen Zoe race karts and was impressed with her skills on track, I am delighted to of taken Zoe under my wing this season and hope to make the transition from karts to cars as easy as possible for her”
Anna switched from karts to cars at the same age as Zoe, 14 years old, where she raced T-Cars.
“I didn’t have any guidance through the transition I know how valuable it would have been”.
“I will be pushing Zoe hard in testing but also off track, her focus and fitness is crucial to keep up as it’s all part of being a quick driver”.
Anna is a fully qualified ARDS Racing Instructor working at Thruxton and Brands Hatch as well as doing manufacturer work.
Zoe’s first outing under instruction in the Saxo was last week. Anna comments:
“She listens, thinks and then puts it into practise. The improvement from her first lap to the last was impressive and her speed raised a few eye brows. I’m looking forward to working with Zoe for the rest of this year”.
The pair will be working together throughout the season.
