More success for Racing ambassador! 

Our Ambassador Georgia Shiels is going from strength to strength!A massive congratulations from us all! 

———————————————-

Georgia has made the switch from stage rallying to Rallycross with the assistance of LOCO Energy Drink. “All of this has come around really quickly,” said Georgia “to be talent-spotted by LOCO is so exciting and this is the start of a really amazing partnership. LOCO only launched last year so it’s great to grow with them and be on this journey to the top of the sport together.”


The Bolton University Engineering student contested in her first British Rallycross event on Sunday, finishing a competitive 7th overall after mechanical issues. Georgia is competing in a 200bhp RX150 buggy. “The RX150s are insane!” Georgia said. “They only weigh 420kg so the sheer acceleration is mind-blowingly fun!”
Rallycross is held on a closed mixed-surface race circuit but still has a nod to stage rallying as drivers spend much of their time sideways on the gravel. It is an ever-increasingly popular form of motorsport. Attracting thousands of spectators at each event and with plans for a rallycross circuit at Silverstone, the future for rallycross is bright! “There is a clear career path in rallycross,” Georgia says “which makes my ultimate goal of becoming the first ever female World Rallycross Champion possible, not to be tokenistic of women, but to inspire more young girls into both motorsport and engineering.”
“This is just the start.”
