Taya Heath to contest Australian GT
Australian GT will see a new face in pit lane during season 2020 with the announcement that 18-year old karting and production car graduate Tayla Heath will step behind the wheel of the Trofeo Motorsport Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo to contest the AGT Trophy Series in the Trofeo Challenge division.
“It’s a dream come true”, Heath admitted ahead of her first test at Phillip Island, “I can’t thank Jim Manolios, David Vervaart and the Trofeo Motorsport team enough for the opportunity to join them for the Australian GT season, especially in such an iconic car.”
Heath turned her first laps in the car at Phillip Island during an open practice day, the team impressed with her mature approach and her understanding of the car.
“Obviously I’d done a bit of simulator work on Phillip Island, but those were my first real laps in the car”, she explained, “The Lamborghini was very different to what I’d driven before, but I got more and more comfortable and quicker with each session thanks to Ryan Millier and Scott Andrews, they gave me a great insight into how to adapt what I knew to a GT car.
