Sheridah enjoys all aspects of motorsport, its in her blood. In summary her passion is huge with a personality to match.
For her 25th birthday she decided to buy a Twin Turbo R32 GTR Nissan Skyline and soon realized that it may be a bit too quick for the road, so she spent the next 6 months prepping it to race hillclimbs in
road registered class.
In April 2015 Sheridah double entered her GTR with her father at Huntley Hill Climb's Come & Try day. Sheridah's 1st run was 34.55, with a best run of 29.61, which positioned her 5th fastest out of 26 Come & Try entrants. She also placed fastest woman on the day. A rather successful 1st race meeting as a driver. Now Sheridah has her Cams License she is ready to drive at as many tracks as possible.
