We were first personally introduced to Chelsea Angelo at the 2021 DAD Summer Drive Day after following her motorsport progress for some time. Chelsea arrived at the event with energy and excitement, and she quickly formed a bond with DAD's events and mental health purpose. Discussions ensued, and we're now excited to announce Chelsea as DAD Ambassador. 

Chelsea tells us a bit about her story...

"I’ve had a motorsport background for nearly 15 years and I have loved cars and motoring since I was introduced to dirt bikes at the age of six. I received the gift from my Dad as he was a motorbike racer himself.

I've raced motorbikes, go karts, Formula Ford, Formula 3, Supercar, Porsche GT3 and most recently TCR. I have loved motorsport ever since I could ride from those very young years.

My part with DAD means a lot to me, as I have had my struggles with anxiety and a little bit of depression when COVID hit last year. For me, just like everyone else, 2020 was going to be a successful year. Unfortunately that took a swing and just like every single person who experienced uncertainty through the year, I didn’t know where my racing was going.

I got to a point where I was going to give up racing completely and just focus on a full time job. I had so many mental breakdowns about my motorsport career and passion that I was a lost soul and didn’t know where to go. Until I found DAD. I am so happy to be a part of this community that brings everyone together who have had similar issues just like myself.

By surrounding myself with like-minded people who know what it’s like to loose something so close to you and be challenged by less than perfect mental health, it brings so much happiness and motivation back to me.

I look forward to many more drive days and DAD events where we can connect and have fun with what we are doing!"
