Célia Martin - French Racing Driver

After driving my first car at 10 years old, to be a professional racing driver has always been my passion and mission. Everything I have done since that defining moment has been to achieve this goal.

Career & Biography

My talent matches my background: atypical. I didn't follow the usual path of karting and went straight to touring cars. 
I then discovered the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 2014 and fell in love with the track. I knew I could achieve something great there.

I managed a French racing team for a Peugeot Sport client in the 24H Series championship and even if we had many podium finishes I decided to stop everything and leave France for Germany in 2017 to concentrate myself only on racing.

My studies in law and private wealth management as well learning German were then very useful. In 2018 I became a factory racing and test driver for Jaguar Land Rover. I am also the first French female driver to be a Race-Taxi driver for Nürburgring JLR Test Centre, succeeding Sabine Schmitz and Claudia Hürtgen.

Since 2019 I am part of a women only team racing NLS and 24H Nuerburgring and last year I became the first french woman to participate in this mythic race.

I attend and host behind the scene of F1 where I share my passion and knowledge for this series and motorsport in general as an Expert Host to VIP Paddock Club guests attending races around the world.
