Recently appointed ambassador for Victron Energy, Chloe Stuart, competed at the MSA Northern Regions Karting Championship at the weekend at a rain-affected Formula-K Kart Circuit, Benoni.



Stuart, a resident of Northcliff, Johannesburg, lives an active lifestyle, participating in CrossFit and Karate, where she holds a brown belt. Barry Stuart, Chloe’s father, remembers the early days: “When Chloe was approximately 18 months old, her mom and I bought her a battery-operated car, and she drove it all around the house and even in the garden. We still have it today.”

Stuart, a Grade 8 student of Northside College, wants to pursue a career in motorsport where she can inspire other young girls with the same dream. Now 13 years old, Chloe competes in four-stroke karting and main circuit racing, where she drives a Formula M single-seater race car.

Making her debut in the T4 Junior class of the Tillotson T4 Series, Stuart is one of only a few female drivers active in South African motorsport. Stuart’s weekend started with a sixth-place qualification followed by a fifth-place finish in the rain-affected opening heat. With drying, but slippery conditions, the teenager claimed an impressive podium finish (third) in the following heat. Following a heavy shower, the final race was cancelled, giving Stuart the third position for the day.

Not only does Chloe and her team showcase the Victron Energy brand, but her lifestyle allows us to showcase our products to a broader audience. With motorsport being an outdoor sport and the availability of electricity not always confirmed at all venues, athletes like Chloe have become reliant on the Blue Smart Chargers. This is only one of Victron Energy’s vast range of products specifically designed for people for whom a mobile power source is crucial, allowing them to take their energy, anytime, anywhere.
