Esmee began racing in karting at the age of 9 and moved up to racing cars aged 15, racing a Ginetta junior. In 2016 she progressed to GT racing, driving a Porsche Cayman GT4, becoming vice champion in her very first year.
In 2017, she continued to race a Porsche Cayman GT4 and had multiple wins and fastest laps, as well as winning the Brighton Speed Trials for Porsche GB. At the end of 2017, she was chosen as a finalist in the Porsche GB Junior shootout. After a close fought battle, she was highly praised by Porsche GB Motorsport Management. In 2018, Esmee was the Brand Ambassador for the Jardine group’s Porsche Centre South London. Following on the path of the Porsche Motorsport Pyramid, Esmee moved up to compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship. The fastest one make series in the UK.
2019 was a busy time for Esmee as she took part in the W Series, her first time racing a single seater of any type. Learning lots and demonstrating her raw ability with a superb qualifying session at Brands Hatch, where she qualified third fastest, she narrowly missed out on automatically securing a spot in the series again for 2020, but for now is happy to put her full focus into GT racing.
For 2020, Esmee will return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship for a third-straight season in 2020, joining championship winning outfit Team Parker Racing.
