About Samantha Tan
IT ALL STARTED WHEN…
Samantha first felt that lightening bolt behind the wheel of the Power Wheels Jeep her father gifted her on her fifth birthday. Her inherent drive to push through the threshold of possibility shone like the sun as she tried time and again to complete a 360° on those plastic wheels. Sometimes, love is sparked from the enthusiasm and adoration expressed from loved ones. From then on, there was little else that would exhilarate her more than cars.
Growing up in Gormley, a small town north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada allowed Samantha the blessing of exploring her passion. Nothing would stop her from taking her love of cars to new heights, leading her to join as the youngest participant of the Ferrari Driving Experience in Mont Tremblant. Racing became Samantha’s oxygen.
Blessed with an incredible team that shares her passion and drive for greatness, Samantha has gone on to finish second at Gateway Motorsports Park as well as competing in the National Autosport Association. Earning Rookie of the Year racing in the Canadian Touring Car Championship, Samantha was ready to take on new challenges. Competing in the Pirelli GT4 America West series is the next step in her journey of racing development, becoming one with her M4 GT4.
