Shea Holbrook, a 2008 Montverde Academy graduate, and 25 year-old native of nearby Groveland, Florida, is a professional racecar driver currently featured in national television TrueCar advert promoting Honda cars! See the entire commercial, filmed in Groveland, Florida, HERE! According to her official website, Holbrook is committed to the slogan that “…through determination anything is possible…Fear is a state of mind, will is an action taken.” And Shea has taken action – having raced cars since 2006. After enrolling in the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Daytona Beach, Florida, and then eventually obtaining her racing license from the Driving School at the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), Shea was also able to graduate with an Interpersonal/ Organizational Communications degree in 2012, and during her college career competed in many races as a full-time racecar driver – including impressive victories at the Long Beach Touring Car Race at the Long Beach Grand Prix.
Before attending UCF, Shea also received her Associate’s Degree at Valencia Community College. Shea has also been a driver for entrepreneur Richard Branson’s Virgin Group and TrueCar Racing, the world’s first all-female racing team. Over the last few years, Shea has been involved with philanthropy linked to muscular dystrophy, and launched her own company (Shea Racing) to further “steer” her career and “business track.” Shea currently races as a competitive member of the Pirelli World Challenge.
