Here are some words from Sabrè on the future, the past and its objectives.

- When did you start competing for the first time?
“I drove a kart for the first time when I was 8 but began racing more competitively when I was 10”.

- What is your first memory with karting?
“The first memory I have is when I was 6 years old. My family had set up a small track out of cones in a mall parking lot and my Dad and Grandpa were driving their shifter karts. I kept pestering my dad to have a ride, so he took me around the track on his lap. I couldn't get over how exciting it was and how much fun I had over just those few laps!”

- Is there anything the kart has taught you and do you continue to use it in the car?
“Karting has taught me so many things on the engineering side, the driving side, mental endurance and strength, and how to work in a team. The list could be a mile long if I wrote out all the valuable things I learned in my karting years! Though I'd say the top thing that has carried over to benefit my time in cars is the race craft”.

- What do you expect from this 2020 season?
“I'm not sure what to expect out of the 2020 season with the current lock down situation, but hope to return to racing soon. Once racing commences I'm aiming to score points in all W Series races and aim for top 5 finishes. In Indy Pro 2000 I'll be working to finish in the top 5 and maybe a few podiums once I learn the car a bit more”.

- What were your best results at the time of karting?
“My top achievements in karting were: 8x State Champion, 3x TAG USA World Champion (2007, 2008, 2009), SKUSA Pro Tour National Champion 2012, First Female to hold a SKUSA Pro License 2013, First Female to Qualify for a KZ2 World Championship Main Event 2014, Challenge of the Americas International Champion 2015, Member of Team USA for Rotax World Finals 2015, US Open National Championship 3rd Place 2015, US Open National Champion 2016”.

- What do you recommend to young girls with the same dream?
“Get out there and give it a go! You're gender is only limiting if you think it is. If you work hard and are passionate about motorsports there's nothing standing in the way of you making a career of it. Don't be afraid to make mistakes and fail; just make sure you learn from them. Find good, successful, and strong people to surround you and help you along the way. It'll be a challenging road ahead but the most important thing is to NEVER GIVE UP!”
