Some of Phoebe’s best memories involve her family and racing.  Through racing, they have shared many special moments together.  One of the things Phoebe loves most about motorsports is watching her Father, Brother, Uncle and boyfriend race.

“[My favorite memory is] definitely winning the British and seeing my dad’s reaction,” says Phoebe Wainman.

Heading into the 2017 season, Phoebe has her eyes set on Brisca F1.  Through her hard work, dedication and support of her family and sponsors, we are sure she will get there.
