We kick off our first podcast in 2023 talking all things motorsport with four female athletes from Monster Energy.
That’s right, we’re going to be doing lots of Podcasts in 2023. What better way to kick the series off on International Women’s Day than catching up with a quartet of female Monster Energy athletes.
We sat down with Top Fuel Racer Jndia Erbacher, Spinning and Stunt Driver Stacey-Lee May, Motorbike Stunt Driver Sara Aydin and Drifter Tessa Whittock, to discuss their respective sporting disciplines and their plans for 2023. These women really do bring a whole new meaning to girl power. Here’s a quick rundown of each of the Monster Energy female athletes before you hit that play button.
Jndia is from Basel in Switzerland and is an International Top Fuel drag racer and record holder; competing in the FIA European Drag Racing Championship. She also runs her own team, and leads the development of her 10,000-horsepower drag car. Yup you did read that right, TEN THOUSAND HORSE POWER. Furthermore, she recently set new European records at Hockenheim and is a leading light in the dragster scene.
Stacey-Lee is from Johannesburg in South Africa and a star of Netflix’s Hyperdrive. She is widely recognised as one of South Africa’s first female Spinning and Stunt drivers. An inspirational character through-and-through; Stacey’s aim is to use her status to encourage more young girls into motorsport and achieve their dreams regardless of their background.
From Gothenburg, Sweden, Sara is a self-taught, and self-made stunt and wheelie scene rider. In a seriously short time Sara has built an audience of over million followers on her Instagram and YouTube accounts alone.
Tessa is from London and is best known for her drifting antics in the UK; she even put on a display for TRAX show goers in 2022. Whittock runs her own drift school and features as a stunt driver in big budget films. She was also the first woman to do a stunt show in front of the King of Saudi Arabia.
