C1 Racing – Motorsport Woman Merlin International Team – Silverstone 24hr

It’s race week and the Motorsport Woman team are all ready and raring to go. The team head for testing on Friday prior to the 24 hour race that takes place on the 3.6 mile Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.

After Hughes’ & Milner’s recent double podium success at the first round of the C1 Racing Club at Croft, there has now been two additions to the team, Jem Hepworth and Sami Bowler.

Meet The Additions…

Jem, 18 from Chulmleigh, is part of the YRDA (Young Racing Driver Academy), and has joined up with the Motorsport Woman team to drive her ambitions and move up the racing ranks.

She mentions: “I’m so excited about the weekend. The girls have been so lovely to me and really boosted my confidence. I think we are a dream team. Bring it on!!” 

Sami, 27 from Manchester, is currently competing in her second season of the MINI Challenge Cooper S/Open class.

Bowler mentions: “This will be my first endurance race and first time racing something other than a mini but we have a strong team so I am feeling confident! We have all come from different racing/karting backgrounds with different strengths but luckily are all quick! It is going to be a mega weekend whatever the weather.” Says Sami.

With only 4 days to go until the event, the girls are all working hard behind the scenes to push for a successful weekend.
