Jade’s Motorsports Career

As in the photograph, Jade currently competes in the Welsh Tarmac Championship in a Subaru WRX Sti rally car, prepared by Group B Motorsport in Deeside to a national Group A Specification.

In October 2018, Jade became the Junior Welsh Tarmac Champion. She also won her Class and was 3rd Overall in the Welsh Tarmac Championship.

She has been competing since the age of 15 having started karting in a 100cc TKM Kart. Her first race was in the pouring rain at Little Rissington in the Cotswolds. She came about success securing her first podium at Llandow at 16.

Jade moved quickly into the very challenging 125cc KZ2 Gearbox Kart Class. This was extremely tough but Jade gained further skills and was to develop her race craft in one of the quickest forms of kart racing. (0-60 in 4 seconds).

At the age of 17 Jade was invited to race for Mazda as part of the endurance race programme. Her first race was the same week as her driving test! Jade rose to the challenge and succeeded in winning more podiums with the Mazda Europe Team. Importantly she learned how to be a professional race driver – dealing with sponsors and engineers.

As the race programme came to a close Jade found her true motorsports passion to be rallying. Having grown up watching her Dad compete in various Rally cars (and hearing nursery rhymes through racing head sets as a toddler) she feels completely at home in rallying environments.

After COVID restrictions, Jade intends to carry on competing and to continue her positive impact in the Motorsport world. We wish her the very best of luck.
