Courtney has been mad for motor-sport right from when she could walk, always wanting a faster mode of transport. She loved bikes, motorbikes, anything motorised at shopping centres, and watching Supercars and F1 on TV with her dad.
From the age of five she started pestering her dad to get into racing motorbikes, of which he said “no it’s too dangerous maybe go karts when you’re older”. She was only ever going to be a race car driver and her career goal and dream has never changed.
When she was seven her parents bought her a go kart, it took her a little time to get the courage to go out on the track but once she got going around the track, she never looked back. Following the karting calendar around the State (Victoria) and some National rounds, Courtney had much success over for almost seven years.
At fourteen years old she secured a Formula Ford drive with Sonic Motor Racing Services – the youngest ever female competitor. Being the smallest driver they have ever had there were challengers fitting out the car. In March 2016 Courtney started practising and towards the middle of the year the Team said she was ready to have a few races to prepare for the 2017 season.
2017 was her Rookie year in Formula Ford, doing as many rounds in Victoria State and National Series as possible and having great success. Courtney competed in the Australian National Formula Ford Series in 2018 and 2019 with Sonic Motor Racing Series.
In 2021 Courtney moved up to racing the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Championship and Aussie Racing Cars Series. Courtney placed 4th in both series in 2022, which gave her an opportunity to step up to the main game of Porsche here in Australia. In 2023, Courtney will be competing in the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Championship.
