MY DREAM TEAM TO DATE
Tim White – Race Engineer and Advisor
I certainly would not have made it through my 86 season or felt so well prepared for the shootout without the efforts of my engineer Tim White. He really put in a lot of additional hours behind the scenes, sourcing new opportunities for learnings, teaching me so much about data and car set-up and importantly keeping the faith and helping me fire up my passion and love for this sport when times were tough.
Rob Wilson – World renowned Driver Trainer
Rob needs no introduction, his skills and client base are elite! Rianna has enjoyed multiple trips to the UK to work one-on-one with Rob and will continue to do so into the future.
Greg Murphy/ Tom Alexander – Driver Trainers
Greg Murphy and Tom Alexander have both spent time with me driver coaching and continue to offer advice and expertise.
Shane Helms – RaceLab, Team Principal
RaceLab assisted me with testing in their Aston Martin GT4 prior to the shootout and are now continuing to help me grow both as a driver and individual providing an exciting partnership opportunity through 2023 and beyond.
Anthony Klarica – Elite Performance
Anthony is a well respected sports psychologist and performance coach. He has worked with Australian teams internationally and at the Olympic games, with national sporting bodies, AFL clubs, tennis Australia, motorsport drivers and teams, rugby teams and with a wide variety of other sports and individual athletes. He has also worked through this exact scenario previously with other athletes.
Greg’s passion and commitment to all things motorsport is unrivalled in the media game. Greg is working with Rianna to fine tune and hone her natural abilities in this area to ensure she has all the skills required to maximise not only her own brand but yours also.
Heremana Malmezac and Francois Beziac – Aedifice Property Group and FHK Racing
Heremana and Francois came on-board towards the end of 2022 and put a deal together that allowed me to race their GT4 Porsche Cayman at Round 3 of the SuperSprint GT Series at Taupo, and again at Manfeild Raceways just days prior to me leaving for my first race at Sonoma There is no better prep and I am so appreciative. I have recently completed some successful testing in their Porsche GT3 Cup MR car and hope to be able to race that in the future.
There are currently some early plans and discussions regarding driving with the team in some European endurance events though 2024.
Ethan Smith and Erin Jackson – Golden Homes in the Southern Lakes
Ethan and Erin, provided funding for my preparation allowing me both seat and race time pre-test, and are continuing to support my growth through 2023. They have also coached me through media interview techniques and provided additional tools to use for public speaking. An awesome husband and wife led team with so many skills between them – lovely people and inspirational mentors.
Deb and Martin Day – Dayle ITM
Deb and Martin from Dayle ITM are already massive sponsors of so many and have also been a major contributor to my recent motorsport journey. I feel privileged to be on their team and excited to see what we can generate for each other in 2023 and beyond.
Highlands Driver Pro
When not racing or working in Australia I am employed by Highlands (part of the Tony Quinn Group) as their first ever female driver pro. I am entrusted with many aspirational vehicle brands and let lose on the track taking clients for rides and or driver training.
Hampton Downs Driver Academy
Working with Dan Gaunt and his team at the academy, training and assisting new talent is extremely rewarding and beneficial for both parties. I love it.
