Biography

At the tender age of four South African racer, Tasmin Pepper got behind the wheel of her first go-kart and has not looked back since. Her early career is littered with national championship race wins and rookie victories. Having impressed teams at a Formula BMW Asia test, she was offered a seat to race in 2008.

Tasmin is an avid supporter and activist for women in motorsport and would like to see more female racing drivers participate in the sport she loves so much.

“Winning W Series would mean everything. Standing up on the top step of the podium, showing everyone we are here for the right reasons and we here to win. Time to take us seriously. It’s about making the right statement and learning from every opportunity we are given.”
