Roger Phillips was pleased to meet young French racer Shana Cohen and her father, Pierre, whilst in France for the Le Mans 24-hour race. The 17-year old, who wants to study Motorsport Engineering at a British Higher Education establishment, may soon also be exploring opportunities for racing in England.

Shana Cohen was born in Singapore on 14th July 1987. As a young girl, she developed a passion for motorsports. When she was twelve years old, she decided to dedicate herself to acquiring the necessary tools to become a professional racing driver.

Shana is currently in her first year of Management Sciences, at the prestigious Warwick Business School (UK). She hopes to combine her practical racing experience and her understanding of auto racing technology with a first-class management degree!

Shana's passion for auto racing coupled with her technical background and knowledge of the science of single-seater racing are paramount to her achieving her goals. Shana also believes that discipline, constant mental and physical preparation and her determination and the will to succeed shall lead her to the top.

In addition to being an attractive young woman, Shana Cohen is multilingual, speaking English, French and Spanish.

This means that she is an excellent spokesperson for her advertising partners.

Shana Cohen spent three years karting and superkarting in Malaysia and Singapore before moving to France in 2002. She believes that she can achieve the kinds of results that will carry her further up the ladder of professional motorsports and that Europe is the place that she needs to be.

In order to fulfill her dreams of working in motorsports, Shana studied at one of France's best scientific high schools to gain the essential technical knowledge she feels can assist in her racing career. She recently undertook a work placement with one of the UK's top Formula Renault racing teams.

Her natural racing talent, maturity and intelligence have impressed motor racing professionals and team owners during several tests in single-seaters throughout France and the UK.
