the Irish Karting Club Junior Max Championship and will dovetail her karting comittments with her Ginetta Junior campaign.
Leo Nulty, Motorsport.ie: “I was involved in the TV coverage of the Irish Karting Club championship last year and was extremely
impressed with Nicole. I don’t race myself anymore so decided to help a young driver through Motorsport.ie. Under the guidance of Luke and Kevin O’Hara, I have no doubt Nicole will go extremely well in the Ginetta.
Kevin O’Hara, Motorsport Ireland Young Driver of the Year “We have tested Nicole a few times already and I am very impressed. Not only is she obviously talented, she is intelligent and takes everything onboard. She certainly won’t be there just to make up the numbers.”
Nicole Coffey “I’m delighted to have been offered this drive. It is a big step up from karts but one I am very excited about. having done a few test days already, I love the Ginetta and am really looking forward to racing it!”
