ART Grand Prix are pleased to announce German racer Carrie Schreiner will drive alongside Léna Büher in the brand new F1 Academy championship this season.
The young driver shone during her time in karting, becoming the first ever female to win the 2012 ADAC Kart Masters in the X30 Junior category.
Carrie stepped up to motorsport three years later where she participated in the British and German Formula 4 series’ before switching to GT and endurance championships in 2017. Here too she found success by being crowned twice in 2018, once in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East (Pro-Am) and again in the DMV Gran Turismo Touring Car Cup (GT3 Class).
Later that year, she became the first woman to win a race in the selective Porsche Sports Cup. In 2021, Carrie finished 5th in the official Italian GT championship and has raced in the legendary Nürburgring 24h since 2019.
“It’s a great honour to be driving for ART Grand Prix. Not many teams have the amount of records they do, or have been champion so many times. I am proud to be joining the list of their drivers and excited about what we can achieve together. I think it’s an important step that F1 has its own championship for women. It will certainly be fun to drive the car with the new aero and with a team like ART. I have the best requirements I need to perform well. I will give everything to achieve the best results and compete for front positions”.
“I’m happy to welcome Carrie into our team, her experience and technical background will be important pillars for building a strong career in the new F1 Academy championship. She has already proven that she can adapt to some very different championships and I have no doubt she will find her feet right from the start of the season”.
