Amanda Cartier is a 3rd generation racer following in the footsteps of her mom, who raced kid karts, and her grandpa, who was a kart, car, and motorcycle racer. After her grandpa passed away, the family found all of his old karting and racing gear in the garage. Knowing her grandpa never gave up that one of his grandkids would take up the sport, Amanda decided it had to be her (Everyone knows she's his favorite!). Little did she know racing would become her life’s purpose. She started karting in 2013, and is joining the F4 Western Championship in 2019. She currently lives in San Francisco, California, with her husband, Isaac, and daughter, Lilly.
