Taegen Poles has the perfect name for a racecar driver. Poles are high on the list of things any racecar driver strives for and Taegen is certainly no exception. Her eyes are set on a future in autosport, and is looking forward to pursuing her passion in her ninth season of karting having already claimed numerous race wins, podium finishes, fastest laps and championships.
Racing as a member of Kevin Glover Karting and primarily based out of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Taegen is driving in the Rotax Junior class on an OTK chassis. She will be competing at a national level for a seventh season, and will be participating in her sixth Canadian National Championship in Mt. Tremblant, QC.
When not racing, Taegen will return as an instructor for KartSTART
, a driver education program working with Toyota designed to give new drivers a clear understanding behind the physics, mechanics and dynamics of driving a motorized vehicle in a closed course environment. To learn more about this unique program please go to www.kartstart.ca
