After gaining her qualifications at The National College for Motorsport, Eliza left home and started her career as a motorsport mechanic with Aston Martin racing privateer, TF Sport. Travelling the world, running an Aston Martin GTE Vantage in European Le Mans series at 18 years old. From there she became self-employed and contracted for various race teams, gaining experience in historic F1, Le Mans prototypes, GT, Ferrari Challenge and single seaters.
Driving has been one of Eliza’s passions ever since she passed her driving test but lack of time and money has meant this passion took a backseat. However, after a few test sessions in the prototypes and warming up the car for Lucas Di Grassi in the Human vs AI challenge she knew she had to give it a go.
She entered the 2021/22 Formula Woman competition and after receiving some great feedback in the preparation stage, she gave it her all and got to the Top 10 women out of over 800 international entrants. Setting the fastest lap in a GT4 at Croft in the process. Since then she carried on her preparation, collecting a few karting trophies along the way and regularly training at iZone in readiness for Formula Woman 2022/23, which she went on to win!
As the 2022 Formula Woman winner, Eliza will now spend 2023 training and racing in preparation for the 2024 GT Cup!
Operations Director, Peter Brooking had this to say on the addition of Eliza to the Kimura Sim Racing Team “I am absolutely delighted that Eliza has joined Kimura Racing and has become our First Professional Female Sim Racing Driver! Eliza’s talent speaks for itself and she has shown what a great racing driver she already is. Winning Formula Woman 2022 and having the opportunity to race in the GT Cup this year is an incredible achievement and we are delighted that we can support Eliza as part of her journey. I am incredibly excited to see Eliza representing Kimura Racing in a Sim Race very soon!”
