Michelle Abbate

Michele Abbate

GRRRacing Driver, Project GrrMaro

Michele is a professional race car driver racing in the SCCA Trans Am series and owner of GRRRacing. At the age of 16, Michele’s first foray into autocross was with a rare MazdaSpeed Protégé – only 5,000 of them were ever made. From there, it wasn’t long before she made the jump to a dedicated race car, a Legends 5/8-scale fiberglass full-fendered NASCAR-inspired vehicle. That powerful car was crucial to the development of Michele’s driving skill, which eventually led her to sign with Scion Racing and really flex her mettle. Most recently, she made her debut in the NASCAR Truck debut at the Circuit of the Americas.
