Chloe Grant

Chloe Grant joined Laser Tools Racing to contest the 2022 GB4 Championship, and she finished ninth in that contest. For 2023, Chloe competes in the F1 Academy, a new all-female championship. It features seven events all staged on famous Grand Prix tracks, 21 races in total, and includes a season finale alongside F1’s United States Grand Prix in Texas in October. The series is aimed at developing and preparing young drivers to progress to higher levels of competition.

Chloe, who hails from Perth, Scotland, started karting in 2013 when she was seven years old. By 2017 Chloe was racing in Minimax and that year won the ESKC championship in Minimax non-MSA and was also the Most Improved Minimax Driver of The Year. In 2019 she competed in the ESKC Championship and led from the start of the season in April, and had two wins with a few other podium places. Chloe also finished 2nd overall in the NSKC Championship, and 3rd in Grampian and was the only driver across all classes to podium in all three championships.

At the Scottish Motor Racing Club 2019 awards night, Chloe was chosen to be an SMRC Rising Star and the youngest to be given this award. 2020 started with a nomination from the BWRDC for their Junior GoldStar Award, with her subsequent win announced at the Autosport International Show in January. Then Chloe become the youngest driver to gain a Motorsport UK Junior Racing Driver License in Scotland. Chloe commented: "I learned to drive a car at Knockhill one afternoon, and after a few practice sessions I successfully passed my ARDs test aged 13 – this felt incredible!"

With COVID restrictions and the subsequent late start to 2020 racing, Chloe's focus became the NKF and CKRC Championships in Rowrah, which she hadn’t competed in before. Chloe finished the NKF Championship in 3rd place, and won the CKRC Championship – she is very proud of this moment. Later in the year Chloe was announced as the British Women's Racing Driver Club’s Kart Sport Champion for 2020.

Early in the 2021 season Chloe won the sought-after Junior Saloon Car Championship scholarship winning a fully-funded season in the popular one-make category. So far in 2022 Chloe has picked up two honours at the British Women Racing Drivers Club awards dinner in Warwickshire for her efforts in 2021: she came third in the BWRDC Racing Championship for the Goodwin Trophies and won the Anita Taylor Trophy for the Best Performance in a Saloon Car.
