15-year-old British-Canadian racer Chloe Chong has been signed by PREMA Racing for the upcoming F1 Academy season.

Chong, who started karting in 2013, most recently made her karting debut at the Rotax Max Euro Trophy and the IAME Ladies Cup in 2021, internationally. She raced in the X30 Junior category of the British Championship in 2022 and was even selected for the FIA Girls On Track – Rising Star. 

Rene Rosin, Team Principal, PREMA Racing, said:

We always relish the chance to welcome new drivers from karting and having Chloe on board for her auto racing debut in our new F1 Academy team is particularly exciting. She has been impressive so far and she demonstrated it through the FIA Girls On Track – Rising Star selections and the FDA Scouting Camp. We think we spotted some great potential in terms of driving and mentality, and knowing that she has so much road ahead makes us confident about our future together.

This will be my first year in cars and it’s a dream come true to have been given the opportunity to make my debut with such a renowned team as PREMA. I look forward to working with them, both in and out of the car to form some solid foundations and results in F1 Academy.

The F1 Academy is an all-female driver series and is set to have 15 drivers on the grid, with the likes of ART, Campos Racing, Carlin, MP Motorsport and PREMA Racing all fielding three cars each. The F1 Academy aims to develop and grow the young female drivers and get them ready for the highest level of motorsport.

The inaugural F1 Academy season is set to have seven events with three races each, which means a total of 21 races and 15 days of testing. The season is set to kick off with the Austrian Grand Prix on April 29, 2023, with the season finale scheduled to be the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, on October 22, 2023.
