Welcome to the official site of Laura Tillett.
The 24 year old has made a name in the motorsport industry by proving she belongs in competitive, top level forms of motorsport.
Racing from the age of 11, Laura has moved up through the ranks and has competed in every major championship in karting. Laura is the first British female driver to ever qualify and compete in the official FIA World Karting Championships at the highest level, and with this and many other great achievements Laura was picked up by two major karting manufacturers to become one of very few drivers to be chosen as a supported works driver.
In 2012 Laura competed for the first time in cars, she competed in the British BARC Formula Renault Championship with a huge grid of 32 boys.
After her first year in cars Laura struggled to find budget to continue racing, and just when she thought that her racing dreams might come to an end, Laura was chosen to drive in the MRF challenge during the winter period, and has done every year for the past 3 years. This championship has been a great opportunity, as Laura became a very competitive driver in the 2.0 Formula Renault backed car and has continued to progress every year, even with some major mechanical issues.
2015 was also a big change for Laura, she was given the chance to compete in her first season in a saloon series, the Volkswagen Cup Championship with SlideSports. Laura was excited to be back out racing again and to also compete in a different series. ut still very challenging form of motorsport. “With many people trying to become F1 drivers, and with such a lack of funding for single seaters, I feel I have made the right choice in moving over to racing saloons for 2015″.
