We are delighted to announce that client Christine Giampaoli Zonca has become an ambassador for the prestigious Oxford Vaughan brand, joining their team including World Endurance Championship drivers Roberto Merhi and Oliver Webb.
Christine is a supremely talented 22 year old female rally driver of Italian origin but who has spent much of her life living in the Canary Islands. Christine – who aims to graduate to European and World Rally Championship level – is a skilled mechanic with her own workshop and a graduate of Birmingham City University with a degree in Motorsports Technology.
Her first professional rally was in 2013 and throughout 2014 and 2015 she has competed in the Canary Islands and Spanish Rallies, in a Toyota Corolla GTi that she has developed herself. 2016 is a preparation year for Christine, obtaining experience in various events on gravel and tarmac, ready for an entry into either the British Rally Championship or European Rally Championship in 2017.
We are thrilled to have Oxford Vaughan support Christine as she continues to progress towards her ambition of being one of the few female drivers to compete in the World Rally Championship. The Oxford Vaughan mantra; “beyond style – performance is everything” perfectly captures Christine’s ethos, leading the luxury eyewear brand to move to work with her as she embarks on her exciting journey in the male-dominated world of motorsport.
Full Contact’s Barry Mears commented “This partnership with Oxford Vaughan is the first stage of a wider plan for Christine to be introduced to the UK and European markets, outside of Spain where she is well known, in advance of her 2017 rallying which should see her compete on these shores for the first time.There are a number of exciting opportunities for her that we are currently working on, so watch this space….”
