Hi my name is Taylah Allen and i race in KA4 junior heavy
i'm 15 years old. was born on the 12th of october 2002 and live in melbourne victoria. I first started karting when i was 12 years old being brought up in a motorsport family with dad racing ipra victoria, i was drawn to this amazing where i could make my way up to every girls (well maybe not every girls) dream to race v8 supercars where my heart would pound at the sight of seeing craig lownds and david renyolds on the tv! i started off at a place just out of Meejian called stony creek go karts and happily finished top 5 every race meeting and became best female lap time of the track for 2015,2016 and 2017. Wanting to steap up the ranks i went to karting austrlaia where it was a big eye opener for me coming from such a little community of people to 50 + people at a club meeting it was everything I wanted !
I compited in a few Eastern lions kart club club days where at my first ever club event i came third and got an award for most involved and encouregment award and a Victorian country series event in Wimmeria where enterys where 200+ and for me and my dad we were blown away and i was so excited for what lied ahead for me in my karting carriea i suprisingly came top 7 with people i had never raced before, boys that had come from factory driver teams and that where determind to get to the top even if that means a bit of close kart racing.
After these events i had found myself more confidient talking to people, my driving skills had gotten much better and i was a lot my hands on working on my kart with my dad tom. I went to stony creek for the last meeting and i hadnt been their for several months and won and for my dad and i it was amazing! I cant wait for the on coming seasons and many more races to come for 2018 and i hope you can join the ride !!
