Esmee Hawkey, a Chislehurst-based driver will be one of the first lucky drivers in the country to race the highly anticipated Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport.
At Porsche Centre Tonbridge, we are delighted to support Esmee as she competes in the GT Cup Championship. At 18 years old, Esme is the youngest female Porsche GT driver in the UK, racing on three Grand Prix Circuits.
Esmee’s dream is to join a manufacturer’s race programme and she has recently spent time with ex-Formula One driver and current FIA World Endurance champion Mark Webber, at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone as part of their Get Race Fit programme.
The programme is run by Porsche’s Human Performance Centre and Esmee joined the current Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain Scholar, Charlie Eastwood, and the 2016 BRDC superstar drivers.
Esmee said: “It’s really great to have Porsche Centre Tonbridge on board as a partner, this is a new chapter in my racing career and I’m very keen to get started. Porsche is a fantastic brand to work with so I’m really happy to have partnered up with Porsche Centre Tonbridge for the next step of my racing journey."
Look out for Esmee as she begins testing in April with her first race taking place at Donnington Park on 23 and 24 April. You can also catch her at the legendary Brands Hatch on 7 and 8 May.
