Porsche Motorsport North America and Deluxe Corporation have expanded the Porsche Deluxe Female Driver Development Program with two more drivers, Chloe Chambers and Madeline Stewart.

Chambers represents the Cayman class, which uses the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, while Stewart will carry the banner for the class utilizing the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Type 992 race car.

Chambers and Stewart join Sabre Cook as this year’s recipients of the Porsche Deluxe Female Driver Development Program scholarship.

Stewart, a native of New Zealand, is racing in the 992 Pro/Am class of the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama.

She drives the No. 282 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car for JDX Racing and has graduated from the Porsche Sprint Challenge Australia championship.

“Coming over to race in the USA this year was a huge step, but I am grateful for the support I have already received,” said Stewart.

“Programs like this really help to further my career in motorsport and it is fantastic to see Porsche Motorsport North America, Yokohama and USAC working so hard to support females climbing through the Porsche Pyramid.”

Chambers, who lives in Indiana, debuted in the Porsche Sprint Challenge this year driving the No. 70 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport for TPC Racing. She grew to fame when she drove a Porsche 718 Spyder to a Guinness World Records achievement for the Fastest Vehicle Slalom.

She still holds the record three years later. In addition to her role in the Porsche Female Driver Development Program, Chambers is also a Porsche Junior Program North America participant in the Cayman class.

“Being part of the Female Driver Development Program is special,” Chambers said. “Having all of the support from Porsche and Porsche Motorsport is great. It is something that I am very appreciative of and I will try and represent the brand well.”

Included in the scholarship, both drivers will receive a full season entry in the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama.

Additionally, they each receive one set of Yokohama race tires each event weekend as well as direct access to PMNA competition advisor and Porsche Junior Program North America driving coach Patrick Long.

“Being able to add the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama to our Female Driver Development Program has been an objective since we conceived the idea,” said Porsche Motorsport North America President and CEO Volker Holzmeyer.

“It is natural to add this to each level of our Motorsport Pyramid. Through our partnership with Deluxe, Yokohama and USAC, we have been able to do it even sooner than we thought would be possible.

“Madeline and Chloe are a perfect addition to the program. They are both excellent drivers and very well received in the paddock. With Madeline, Chloe and Sabre together, I cannot think of three better drivers to represent the program.”
