Hi, my name is Alisha Palmowski. I am a 17 year old girl that has a MASSIVE passion for motorsport. In August 2015 I was lucky enough to get my first drive in a kart and have been racing ever since.
Outside of racing, I attend Loreto College in Manchester where I am studying A Levels in Maths, Computer Science and Business. I enjoy mountain biking, love all kinds of music and am a big movie fan.
After having my first karting experience in a corporate kart in 2015, I went on to compete in the Daytona Junior InKart Championship at both Manchester and Tamworth during 2016 & 2017, becoming the Manchester Vice Champion in 2017. During this time in 2017 I also began testing in my own 2-stroke kart.
In 2018 I made the move up into the BirelART Series UK national championship (2-stroke owner driver), again in the junior category, where I went on to become the Junior Rookie Champion.
In 2019 the series became the Daniel Ricciardo Series UK national championship where I went on to become a seeded driver before gaining the title of Junior Vice Champion in 2020 and again in 2021.
2020 saw me have my first drive in a race car - a Ginetta Junior G40. This was part of a test day at Blyton Park and I also went on to compete in the 2021 Ginetta Junior Scholarship, finishing in the top 8 and only narrowly missing out on the final few shootout.
I again took part in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship in November 2021 and won, beating more than 60 other entrants, to become the 2022 season Scholar. I therefore made my debut and step up to racing a Ginetta Junior G40 race car in the 2022 Ginetta Junior Championship season, and with it also became the 2022 Ginetta Junior Winter Series Vice Champion. 2022 was an absolutely fantastic year and a dream come true offering me the amazing opportunity to race amongst the highest level of junior race car drivers in the country. I continued in this series again in 2023, becoming a consistent front runner whilst developing my race craft further.
I am a HUGE F1 fan and go to the British Grand Prix each year as well as a few others. My favourite driver and idol is Lewis Hamilton. I have been lucky enough to meet many of the current and past F1 drivers and was previously invited to the British Grand Prix as a VIP guest of the Racing Point F1 Team - this was an awesome experience and courtesy of my cousin Jordan Waller - a big shout out to him for making this possible.
My ambition is to have a career in motorsport. I would ultimately love to progress to the highest level possible. However, it would be great to be successful enough to achieve a professional career in motorsport regardless of the formula.
