Team SGR has continued to innovate and evolve with the Canadian motorsports community over the last 16 years.
“In 2004, we branched off as a separate entity and set out to be a social organization that not only wanted to focus on advanced driver training, but give a voice to women in the automotive industry.” said Anna He, President and co-founder of Team SGR Advanced Driving. “As the times changed, we felt that that we’re ready to grow and broaden our appeal because advanced driving is important for men, women, teens and the elderly, especially in our adverse Canadian weather during the winter.“
“With our new 2015 Team SGR membership program launched this year, we are confidently able to offer a wider range of advanced driver training programs, car care clinics and charity fundraisers. Starting from our 1st gear car control programs in go karts laddering up to our 5th gear performance driving race license program with our various partners, our events are more accessible and affordable to Canadian drivers and their families than ever before.”
