Project Le Mans

Rebecca jacksonAfter watching an array of prototypes and sports cars competing at Le Mans when I was guest of Michelin’s, it only cemented that one day I wanted to be driving in arguably the toughest endurance race that exists.

A plan was engineered to progress through the Porsche marque up to Carrera Cup and GT3 racing and eventually the highly prestigious ‘Le Mans 24 hour’ endurance race in 2016. In line with my plan, 2013 sees a progression up to racing a Porsche Boxster. Although I have an affinity with Porsche other marques should not be eliminated from the picture.

‘Project Le Mans’ is attracting a volley of interest from the international press and will certainly be very well documented through, press, TV and social media . This is important as in addition to my objectives of competing at the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race I also have peripheral endeavours.

PorscheThe press profile that ‘Project Le Mans’ is attracting will help to promote awareness for Breast Cancer Research. I have 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 Sentebale and Instituto Ayrton Senna.

Hopefully the project will inspire other women to follow their dreams, whatever their aspirations in life are. As a member of the British Women and Racing Driver’s Club and a Michelin Inspirational Woman 2012 it is something very important to me.
