Welcome to Emily Maddison Online
As the 2011 racing season came to a close for Emily Maddison in November, the talented female pilot was already looking onwards into 2012. Once again joining forces with Phil Giebler Racing aboard an FA Kart, Maddison will compete in select events throughout North America including the Florida Winter Tour (FWT), Western Canadian Championships (WCC), Eastern Canadian Karting Championships (ECKC), Superkarts! USA Pro Tour (SKUSA) and the annual Canadian National Championships.
"2011 was an up and down season in regards to results," expressed Maddison. "We were able to show speed at a lot of events but lacked in posting solid finishes. I am looking forward to the 2012 season as it will be my second year in the senior ranks and I now know that I am better prepared to compete against some of North America's best."
On the strength of strong results north of the border in the Western Canadian Championships, Canadian National Championships and one round of the ECKC program in Eastern Canada, Maddison was ranked as the top female driver in all of Canada according to the eKartingNews.ca Driver Rankings. Competing as a female in a male dominated sport as well as being a rookie in one of the most hotly contested divisions, Maddison battled tooth and nail to take home top ten results throughout the year. In 2012, Maddison will look to improve upon her rookie year as well as maintain the status of the top female driver in Canada.
Looking back on Maddison’s career, In 2010 Emily was the highest ranked female junior competitor in all of Canada, the first female ever to be selected to compete in the Hinchtown Formula Car Shootout as well as claimed third place results in the overall series title in both the Superkarts USA Pro Tour and the Western Canadian Championships.
Building her resume on the strength of a pair of championships in the Calgary Kart Racing Club (CKRC) in 2008 and 2009, Maddison became the first female driver to claim a CKRC championship and then the first female to become a double champion as she repeated her title run the following season. With her driving talents, fierce competition and strong results, Maddison was awarded the 2008 CKRC Driver of the Year award as voted by her peers, racers and fellow competitors.

After taking a two-month break from karting to finish her high school education, female pilot Emily Maddison returned back to the seat at the SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) SummerNationals two weekends ago. With the event taking place at the picturesque Miller Motorsports Park facility in Tooele, Utah, Maddison would compete with a D-Power Racing Engines, Phil Giebler Racing FA Kart in the ultra competitive TaG Senior division. Though the end of the weekend results did not show the young female's true speed, Maddison was happy to be able to consistently run in the top fifteen in terms of lap times.
