Sabre Cook was named as the first member of the Porsche Deluxe Female Development Program member earlier this year in March – now she has additional company with Porsche and Deluxe expanding the program to feature two new racers.
While Cook competes in the Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America, two racers from Porsche Sprint Challenge by Yokohama will now be part of the program – both in the GT3 and Cayman divisions.
New Zealand third-generation racer Madeline Stewart is racing for JDX Racing in GT3 this season and has already impressed – scoring a podium on debut in Sebring. American Chloe Chambers is the other new addition racing for TPC Racing in the Cayman division.
Chambers debuted recently at Barber Motorsport Park – taking two victories on debut. Like Cook, she is a former competitor in W Series competition.
“It’s fantastic to see that Porsche and Deluxe are extending the female driver development program and including two new women this year,” Cook said.
“As I said at the beginning of the season, I didn’t wanna be the only one, and it’s just proof to see that Porsche and Deluxe are committed to this initiative.
“It’s not a one-off. They’re clearly trying to create a pathway to continuously get women into the different Porsche series and into Porsche race car seats. So I really love to see that they are bringing more women in this year.
“I have to give a big congratulations and welcome to Madeline and Chloe. I’m very excited to see that they are on board for the season.”
Cook has continued to make strong strides forward in her first season in what is a highly competitive Pro class in the Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America.
She was on target for her first top ten in Long Beach before striking a tire that had come off another car, but then bounced back in Miami to record two top ten finishes in the two races.
“I’ve steadily moved forward throughout the first three races of this season in the Porsche Deluxe Career Cup North America, and been working very hard on and off the track to make that happen,” Cook said.
“I’m continuing to put my head down and very focused on making another step forward.
“I’m learning a lot. Kellymoss has been fantastic in my support and development, and I’m very excited to see how I can step forward each time throughout the rest of the season.”
Cook’s next outing in the Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America will be at Watkins Glen International from June 22-25, while Stewart and Chambers will be in action in Porsche Sprint Challenge by Yokohama at VIRginia International Raceway from June 2-4.
