Evans Motorsport Group Young Gun Chelsea Angelo has been selected to attend the CAMS Scholarship Camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
The Melbourne-based 16 year old won her place in the camp after finishing runner-up in the Women of Australian Motorsport Scholarship program and will attend the AIS in early July to be schooled on fitness, diet and psychology to help with her racing exploits.
Although not racing in 2012 Chelsea has been constantly testing with the rest of the Evans team in preparation for a full assault on the Victorian Championship in 2013. Her testing times have been impressive and according to Angelo's Manager and Team Principal, Josh Evans, her progress has been stunning.
"She's been very impressive during testing and we're really looking forward to continuing Chelsea's progression over the rest of this year and into the future," Evans said.
"Her attitude and ability to absorb information during a test session is as good as I have seen from a person of her age.
"Chelsea's continually in the top 10 drivers during Friday testing at Victorian Championship meetings where there's fields of 40 plus cars."
Evans hopes that the scholarship will open some doors for the talented teenager and deliver some corporate support for 2013.
"We're putting together her program for next year and looking for some funding now, so being selected to participate in the AIS program can only help," Evans said. "She's taken a different route in that she is only testing this year but it's going to hold her in good stead.
"When she does start racing she's going to have a great understanding of the car so she will be able to concentrate on racing and not about learning what the car does under different conditions," he added.
