Hitting the track for wheel-to-wheel competition for the first time in 2016, Sabré Cook will travel to Phoenix, Arizona for the second round of the 2016 Challenge of the Americas. Piloting a new blue Energy Kart, Cook will enter the Shifter Senior category as she aims for the top step of the podium to kick her season off right.

“It has been a few months since I have competed but as always, I am up for the challenge,” explained Cook. “I am happy that the Challenge of the Americas program has added some shifter kart classes as I really enjoy it. I am hoping that I am able to kick the season off with a win as well as put on a good show and garner the results needed for my new supporters.”

Showing speed and race-winning talent in a variety of different classes, Cook has been a threat in both Rotax and gearbox competition throughout the United States. A threat for the US Open Elite Shifter title in 2015 and a member of Team USA at the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals in Portugal late last year, Cook has proven that she is one of the top up-and-coming female drivers that motorsports has to offer. Couple her on track results with her off track dedication in both the paddock and in her schooling, Cook is a shoe-in for success in whatever she gets behind the wheel of.

Cook continued, “There is a lot in the works for 2016 but right now, my focus is on this coming weekend. I want to get back in the seat and compete at a high level. Once the weekend is over, I will focus towards the next task and race.”
