Ayla has been driving since she was 7 years old. She started driving go-karts, and has competed in the World, European, Dutch, German, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian championship. This in addition to the European leading karting series called WSK. 2012 was her first season in Open wheel racing. She competed in the Skip Barber summer series, and brought home 4 podiums.
Just from looking at her, you may think that Ayla Agren is no different from your typical 19 year old girl. But behind the blonde hair and blue eyes lies a burning desire to be the best, no matter what it takes. No ordinary teenage girl would leave the comfort of home to go over 5,000 miles away and pursue the sport of professional auto racing, unless there was a true desire, and talent, to make it to the top.
In addition to her talent on the track, Ayla is also a full time student and will commenceher first year of College this spring. She also works with several organizations in Norway to educate youth on defensive driving.
