Kelly Wood Racing, Skip Barber National Karting Shoot-out and New Website.

An exciting year started for Kelly at Sebring International Raceway taking part in her first Skip Barber National shoot-out. With only two years of racing behind her in karts, it was going to be a steep learning curve getting to grips with a formula car. Following a successful three day Skip Barber School the week before at Sebring, Kelly successfully completed her first challenge. A session on the Skid Pad in the Mazda Miata followed by an autocross driving class in the Mazda Mx5.

5 Sessions followed over the next 2 days, switching cars on each session certainly tested Kelly's new found skills. Finally a change in track layout for day 3, at 120MPH flat out into a blind corner in a car for the first time was certainly a new experience.

By the end of her last session on track, Kelly had managed to be within 1.2 seconds of her more experienced Canadian drivers in her best session. It was a great experience for her.

While in Sebring, a new website came online www.kellywoodracing.com which can be viewed, where you can keep up to date with Kelly's racing activities.
