Samantha Tan is a 20-year old professional race car driver from Gormley, a town located 27 kilometers north of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Her interest in cars steamed at the young age of 5 when her father bought her a Power Wheels Jeep. She fondly recalls drifting around the driveway in front of her house and was always striving to complete a full 360.

Tan was the youngest driver to participate in the Ferrari Driving Experience at Mont Tremblant, Quebec, where she ultimately made her decision to start racing. In 2014, she competed in the National AutoSport Association (NASA), and achieved a 2nd place finish at Gateway Motorsports Park, and two 3rd place finishes at Virginia International Raceway. During the summer months, she was a part of the Canadian Touring Car Championship in the #45 Mini Cooper S JCW. Samantha finished 5th out of 22 cars in the Touring Class, 9th out of 47 overall in the series, and was recognized as Rookie of the Year!
This season, Samantha, alongside her teammate Nick Wittmer will be competing in the Pirelli World Challenge SprintX GTS series. Tan and Wittmer will be sharing the ST Racing BMW M4 GT4. Be sure head over to the Race Results page to see the schedule for the 2018 season!
