Palmowski contested the 2021 Ginetta Junior Scholarship, finishing in the top-eight but claimed the prize the following year. She rounded out her racing year last November by impressively recording two poles and two podiums in the Ginetta Winter Series. 

Words from Alisha Palmowski

Alisha Palmowski, said: “My main goal this year is to be a competitive and consistent front runner challenging for the championship. I am very proud to be joining Elite. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to race with the reigning Ginetta Junior Champions. I’m confident we can work together to have a successful 2023 season and am very excited to get testing underway.” 
“2022 was a big learning curve for me going from karts to cars. My greatest satisfaction was finishing the season on a high by becoming the vice champion of the Ginetta Junior Winter Series.
I achieved my first two pole positions and first two overall podiums!”
