Van der Merwe started racing in the regional circuit when she was 19 and is one of the few females in a male-dominated sport.

“It is a huge honour for me to be sponsored by Hot 91.9FM,” says Van der Merwe. “It affords me the opportunity to ensure that my car is competitive and increases my chances of being a championship contender.”

Hot 91.9FM managing director Lloyd Madurai says: “ We are delighted to welcome Charisse to the Hot 91.9 family and look forward to watching her race the circuit. We fully support women transforming sport and Charisse is an inspiring role model for all women wanting to participate at this level.”
