Teenage talent Shanel Drewe will mount a challenge on the Michelin Clio Cup Series this year, entering the Road Series with reigning class champions Jade Developments.
Drewe made her car-racing debut last season in the Junior Saloon Car Championship as a privateer entrant, impressing onlookers with her raw pace and racecraft as she impressively progressed through the season.
The 16 year old, who is set to be the youngest driver on the grid this season, is now making the next step up the British Automobile Racing Club’s touring car ladder as she enters the Road Series in a distinctive black and pink liveried Clio racer.
With key backing from Dansoft Aviation Series and WrappedUpCars.com behind her, the Bristol-based racer is set for a busy start to the season as she combines her racing with plenty of studying ahead of her GCSE examinations later this year.
Shanel Drewe: “I am looking forward to joining the Michelin Clio Cup Series, as the dynamics of the Clio’s make them such phenomenal race cars to drive. The championship offers me the opportunity to fine tune my racing skills in the Road Series, before moving up to the Race Series next season. I am so grateful to Dansoft Aviation Services, WrappedUpCars.com, Witham Group, City Electrical Factors and Goldstar Onboard for believing in me and I am determined to do them proud this year.”
