"Racing, competing, it's in my blood. It's part of me, it's a part of my life; I have been doing it all my life and it stands out above everything else."

~ Ayrton Senna

Demi Chalkias on the race track

On the track

What I love the most about racing is the competition. Everyone comes to the track knowing they’re going into battle and the number one goal is to try to come first. It’s a dog eat dog world on the track, everyone wants to win; and I’ve always been a hungry fighter.

I get questioned a lot as to why I love racing- the pressure, the demand of toughness, the danger… and all I can say is that I love the inner animal it brings out of me. Not many things in life bring that form of a higher self, if you will, out of you. I transform into a completely different person and as soon as the helmet goes on, I’ve entered a different world. It’s absolutely insane.

As a female in a heavily male dominated sport I definitely tend to stand out. Females competing in racing are few and far between and we are very much out weighed by men. This alone can be intimidating for females to get into the sport, but I wasn’t afraid of it. I kept my head down and worked as hard as I could to be the best driver that I could be and to demand my respect as a driver in the racing community.

Behind the Scenes

My mental discipline and determination to constantly grow as a driver enables me to continue to evolve into something greater.

Whether it’s forcing myself to try new driving techniques or learning different platforms of cars or understanding how all parts of a car work and why certain mods are good/bad, enables me to set myself apart.

It has made me into a very competitive driver, one who won almost every race this season and locked down the 2018 Championship but it also made me into an educated driver. A lot of people have this preconceived stereotype with girls that they should either just be the model standing next to the cars or if they are a driver they don’t know anything about the car or can’t perform well. I can prove them wrong on all aspects.

I work on my own cars and outside of the racing world, I restore and modify classic BMW’s. Racing and cars are legitimately my life.

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perserverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing or learning to do.  – Pele
