Irish racing driver Alyx Coby will mark a major milestone in her racing career in the United States as she will compete at Sebring International Raceway this weekend in the World Racing League Championship driving a BMW GT4 in the GTO Class.
Sebring International Raceway was utilised earlier this week by Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Dale Coyne Racing who test both Pietro Fittipaldi for Rahal and his brother Enzo with Dale Coyne Racing, the grandson’s of two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Emerson Fittipaldi.
Alyx will then head to Texas for the final race of the season which takes place at the Circuit of the Americas from December 1-3.
Alyx is looking forward to the opportunity ahead of her.
“It has been great to be back with Random Vandals and I cannot wait to get back racing. I’m very grateful to Paul and his team for this opportunity and for believing in my potential. Competing at Sebring and COTA is a fantastic challenge, and I’m excited to be representing Irish racing at these iconic tracks.”
Nicci Daly, founder of Formula Female commented saying:
Over the last three years, Paul and his team have been dedicated supporters of Formula Female, with a special focus on nurturing Alyx’s racing career. Paul’s mentorship has played a pivotal role in fostering young talent like Alyx, instilling new confidence and motivation and I am so thankful for all his support.
Paul Sparta, driver and Random Vandals Team owner said
“It is always gratifying to support a talented up and coming driver. It’s been a pleasure to work with Alyx over the past few years and see her progress in her career. We are excited to have her on board the Random Vandals Racing team to finish out the WRL season at Sebring and COTA.”
