// Video Transcipt //

Chloe Chambers > 

My name is Chloe Chambers, I’m sixteen years old.

I’m racing in the Formula 4 Championship, and I’m car number eight.

Jonathan Green >

Chloe, let me start by saying how excited I am for you. How exciting for you. You’ve been carting a long time, but this is the big stuff, this is the big time!

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, I’m super excited. I’m really happy to be here, to be racing cars.

It’s my first year in cars. I’ve been racing carts for eight years, so it’s been a long time coming.

This is just an amazing opportunity. I’m really excited.

Jonathan Green >

What does a Future Star Racing Scholarship mean to you?

Chloe Chambers > 

It’s… just amazing!

This is what gave me the opportunity to race in the Formula 4 Championship, and I’m super grateful for everybody’s help.

Mark and Alora are super generous, and I’m extremely grateful to have their support.

Jonathan Green >

I was gonna say, it’s not just a scholarship, financially, it’s also real people helping you out, people like Al Unser, Jr., one of the greats, and one of the great names of racing in America.

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, it’s just amazing. The team that they put together is, you know, top-notch, and I’m really excited to be working with these great names, and they’re helping me a lot, so far.

Jonathan Green >

Tell me a little bit about your car, too, because you got to the busy heights.

I know you were third in the Nationals at one point. You’ve made a name for yourself, already, so you’re not coming in here as an unknown.

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, so I’ve been racing carts for eight years. I started when I was eight and 2019 was really my breakthrough season. That’s the season when I put a lot of effort in doing national races and getting my name out there, and what you’re talking about is SKUSA Super Nats in Las Vegas, which is the biggest cart race in the world, is what a lot of people say, and I came in third there in the x30 junior.

That’s really where my recognition took off.

Jonathan Green >

I don’t need to tell you, we haven’t had that many women in motorsports, but it’s changing. And it’s changing quickly.

In the last few years, we have seen an upsurge in drivers and the people involved on all levels of motorsport.

How excited are you to be in this era where finally you’re getting the recognition and the chance to go race?

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, it’s just amazing. like I said. I’m super happy to be racing and to be able to put my name out there.

And being a female also, you know, helps me get that recognition and prove to people that, you know, females can do just a good as males.

Jonathan Green >

Are you taking it day by day, or have you got an ambition? Where would you like to be in let’s say, five years?

Chloe Chambers > 

My first goal is to reach Formula 1, and then after that, you know, I’m open to pretty much anything I’m given.

Jonathan Green >

Would you care which team you drove on?

I know you’ve driven against Lewis in his car for him.

Would you like to be on an American team, or where would you go?

Chloe Chambers > 

I would like to be on a winning team. I just don’t want to get into F1. I want to get into F1 and win. So, I need someone to give me the opportunity to do that, would be great.

Jonathan Green >

What’s missing out of that prospect?

What have you got to learn, first and foremost, before you can be starting to look for that future?

Chloe Chambers > 

Well, right now it’s just a learning curve going from carting to cars.

I have to learn how to, you know, the techniques that you use in the cars are a little bit different than carting, so right now is, you know, learning as much as I can about driving and racing and everything that I can possibly learn.

Jonathan Green >

Well, that’s certainly going to give you a back to the fire this weekend.

You’ve already had an incident this you were involved in, not your fault, but it looks as though there is some rain coming.

How do you feel about the weekend ahead?

Chloe Chambers > 

I’m really hopeful for race number three.

The rain, I like the rain. I raced in carts in the rain so I’ve had plenty of wet-weather experience. I only started driving in the rain on Thursday. After Thursday, you know, I figured out that I really love the rain.

Jonathan Green >

Who inspired you?

Who’s your favorite driver, male or female?

Chloe Chambers > 

I’d have to say that I’ve always been a fan of Eric, and then, I’ve always followed him; ever since I was little, I’ve always loved his driving style, his attitude, and everything.

Jonathan Green >

Well, you’ve certainly created some stir in the media.

I hear that you’re actually going to be on TV in New York next week?

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, for Pixel 11. It’s a news channel for the tri-state area.

I did a little segment with them right after my Guinness World Record last year, and so they, you know, after my segment they said “Maybe we should catch up with her after she gets her driver’s license.”

So, I got my driver’s license earlier in the week so, you know, it’s a perfect time to catch up.

Jonathan Green >

That was for slaloms. 

I noticed some slaloms down there. If the rains and they call your race off, we might have to get you to do some slaloms.

Chloe Chambers > 

[laughs]

Jonathan Green >

So, you’re the record-holder slalom champion?

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, for a production car slalom. I did it last year in August, for, you know, I did it with Porsche, and it was in the Porsche 718 Spyder.

Jonathan Green >

Finally, away from racing, I know something that is important to you is the gift of adoption. Tell me about that and why that’s important to you.

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, so Gift Of Adoption is an organization who tries to unite children with loving families, and that’s a really big part of my life considering that my siblings and I are all adopted and I think it’s just a really good cause to be representing in a kind of world that isn’t so used to seeing this kind of stuff.

I think bringing recognition to it is really important, and it’s something that everybody can help out with.

Jonathan Green >

Finally, what’s you goal for racing?

Chloe Chambers > 

I’m just trying to make up as many positions as I can and keep my nose clean.

Jonathan Green >

Chloe Chambers > 

Ya, I can.

You know, the car doesn’t know if you’re male or female. Your skill is really what drives it.

I do competitive swimming. And in that, there really is a difference, just based on anatomy.

But when you’re racing cars, it just comes down to talent.

Jonathan Green >

And what about your training, because you go up and the G-forces get tighter, are you going to have to train more next muscles, arm muscles, and upper arms, and so on, and so forth…?

How’s your training regiment?

Chloe Chambers > 

Training is going pretty well.

Once again, I do competitive swimming, so that’s a pretty competitive sport.

Backstrokes. Backstroke is my main stroke. It’s kind of the opposite because I’m not very tall, but in the backstroke, I think I had the seventh-fastest time in my section.

Ya, I’ve been swimming since I was six, so it’s been a pretty big part of my life and I’ve really loved it.

Jonathan Green >

Well, listen, finally, allow our viewers and fans to know where we can find you on social media, so young girls, and young guys, can start to follow you at.

Chloe Chambers > 

On Instagram and Facebook, you can find me at ChloeChambersRacing, and on Twitter, you can find me at ChloeCRacing.

Jonathan Green >

All right, best of luck this weekend.

We’ll be following you here.

If you get a chance come join me in the commentary booth.

We’d love to hear more.

Chloe Chambers > 

Yes, thank you.
