As ever the popular Whakatane dairy farmer and mum will hit the ground running after a busy 2023 that most recently has seen her competing in the South Island Endurance Series in a GT4 and just last weekend in the final round of the Toyota 86 Australia Series at  the massive Bathurst 1000 meeting.


“It’s very busy on track at the moment and feels like I’m in the car all the time which is awesome,” she said following confirmation she’ll race for the fourth consecutive season in the highly competitive Toyota 86 Chamnpionship.


“The Toyota 86 Championship is always fiercely fought out and it keeps me very sharp as a racing driver. I’m still hunting for that first win and every year we get a little bit closer so that would be the goal for this coming season and to beat my main rival John Penny to the Masters title. 


“I just love the racing though and flying the flag for the team. We have a great time. I started racing when I was five and as I don’t tell anyone how old I am, all I can say is that I’ve been racing a long time and still love every second.”
