The Lime Rock Drivers Club is honored to share the news that LRDC Member Carole Halvorsen was recently awarded with Porsche Club of America's (PCA) Michael Melton Rookie of the Year Award. Carole received the award at the annual awards banquet held at Sebring and was featured within PCA Club Racing magazine.
Carole is the first female recipient of the award.
In the magazine, Carole writes, "If someone had told me 7 years ago that I would come in 2nd place in I class in PCA Club Racing, and receive the Michael Melton Rookie of the Year award, I would have questioned their sanity. I am deeply honored and humbled to win this prestigious award. As the first female recipient, my hope is that other women will follow their dreams and get to this position as well."
She continues, "It all began with the gift of a track day at Lime Rock Park for my husband for Fathers’ Day from our daughter Amanda. The next weekend, I tried it as well. I immediately became a member of the Lime Rock Drivers Club, which enabled me to have an abundance of quality track time and top notch coaching. As will happen, I couldn’t get enough of this sport."
