British Racing Driver and TV Presenter Rebecca Jackson is determined to compete in the prestigious ‘Le Mans 24 hour’ endurance race, respected as one of the toughest races that exists. Rebecca has had her eye on racing at Le Mans since an early age and this was fortified after spectating at the event as a guest of Michelin.
This season Rebecca is competing in the Bute Motorsport GT Cup Championship behind the wheel of a factory built Porsche 911 Cup car, sharing the drive with Kent based Mike Sellar.
The glamorous female racing driver and TV presenter has engineered a four year plan to progress through various different championships and series up to GT racing and eventually the highly prestigious ‘Le Mans 24 hour’ endurance race. In her second season of racing she achieved 5 podiums in the fiercely competitive BRSCC Porsche 924 Championship including a race victory. In line with her plan, after winning the BRSCC Production Boxster Championship in 2013, she then went onto compete in longer races with the 750mc in the Cartek Roadsports Endurance Series backed by Turtle Wax.
Rebecca's ‘Project Le Mans’ is attracting a volley of interest from the international press and is being very well documented through, press, TV and social media . This is important as in addition to her objectives of competing at the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race she also has peripheral endeavours.
She intends to use the press profile that ‘Project Le Mans’ is attracting to promote awareness for Breast Cancer Research. She has also pledged 100% of the profits, made through sales of selected commissioned merchandising, to be donated to charities that devote their efforts in getting vulnerable and homeless children off the streets and educating them in a stable environment. Funds will be raised for Instituto Ayrton Senna.
Rebecca is determined to compete at Le Mans as to act as an inspiration to women in what ever their aspirations in life are. Rebecca truly believes that with the right level of diligence commitment, belief, and of course a little luck, anyone can achieve their ambitions. After all, she was a Michelin Inspirational Woman 2012, 2013 and 2014.
