Bell Techlogix is proud to continue its commitment to helping women athletes break barriers in motorsport. As a Shift Up Now Corporate Member, Bell Techlogix is sponsoring five athletes for the 2023 racing season: Erin Vogel, Sally McNulty, Sarah Montgomery, Loni Unser and Pippa Mann. Bell Techlogix is excited for this year’s racing season and can’t wait to cheer on these athletes to unprecedented success.
Meet the drivers:
This is the sixth consecutive year Bell Techlogix has sponsored Pippa Mann. With a relationship that started at the Indy 500, Bell Techlogix has joined Pippa in various racing programs, including in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series, at the Indianapolis 8 hour race, and at the ADAC Total 24-hour race at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The past two seasons have seen Pippa lead her team to multiple top 5s as a coach and co-driver in WRL competition, to wins and podium finishes at Watkins Glen, VIR, Road Atlanta, Mid Ohio and Circuit of the Americas as a coach and co-driver in the IGT series, and she and her team-mates have won their class once at the 24-hour race in Germany, and stood on the podium.
In 2023, Pippa returns to various sports car series across the US, sporting the Bell Techlogix logo on her driver's suit and helmet, and she will return to the ADAC Total 24 race in Germany for the 3rd time with the WS Racing "Girls Only” all female team.
A first generation racer from Phoenix, AZ, in 2023, Sally McNulty is on a mission to become the first female racer to win in TC America. Her sights are set on becoming the first women to stand on the podium, win a race in her class, and then to fight for the Championship.
After two strong years in the TCA class, in 2023 Sally is stepping up to the TC class of the Touring Car America Championship in her Borla Exhaust / LIQUI MOLY Hyundai Veloster N with the GenRacer / Ricca Autosport Team. As an associate sponsor of her program for the second season, Bell Techlogix logos will be featured on both Sally’s race car for the 2023 season, and her 2023 driver’s suit.
In 2022, and in her very first race with Bell Techlogix branding on her race car, Sarah fulfilled one of her goals to become a race winner in the GTO class of the World Racing League Championship. She and her Round 3 Racing team-mates went on to win another three times, with five total podium finishes inn their BMW M4 GT4 in the 2022 season.
In 2023 Sarah returns to GTO as part of the all new Round 3 Racing / Shift Up Now all female driver line-up. With Bell Techlogix as an associate sponsor, this all female driving line up is hoping to become the first all-female team to stand on the podium in the GTO class, and to win races overall in the series. The Bell Techlogix logo will be featured on the Round 3 Racing / Shift Up Now entry, and on Sarah’s 2023 driver's suit.
After competing for several seasons in GT World Challenge America in a GT3 car, and becoming the first-ever female racer to win a race in the ProAm class of GT World Challenge world wide, Erin Vogel has decided to step back from GT3 racing in 2023, and step into a leadership role with the all-new Round 3 Racing / Shift Up Now team.
In 2022, Erin stepped into the GP1 class with Loni Unser as part of the first Round 3 Racing / Shift Up Now all female team, and was part of the three-driver line-up who swept the Sebring race weekend with two wins from two races. While the level of competition to succeed in GTO is incredibly high, Erin is hoping to taste more success with her team-mates in 2023. The Bell Techlogix logo will be featured on the Round 3 Racing / Shift Up Now entry, and on Erin’s 2023 driver's suit.
Loni Unser is a fourth generation racer from the famous Unser family, who makes up the the third and final member of the Shift Up Now / Round 3 Racing all female GTO team sponsored by Bell Techlogix.
In 2021 and 2022, Loni and her teammates won many races in the GP1 class of World Racing League, and in 2022, Loni and her teammates also won the Eastern and National Championships in the class. Loni was part of the all-female GP1 team that swept the weekend at Sebring raceway, and in 2023, she finally has the opportunity to step up to GTO competition in WRL. The Bell Techlogix logo will be featured on the Round 3 Racing / Shift Up Now entry, and on Loni’s 2023 driver’s suit for this program.
