Hollywood, CA, May 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The 2012 UMP Summer Nationals "The Hell Tour" is a grueling 29-race event that takes place over 31 days, in 8 states and Kathy Jarvis will be the first woman in history to compete. Widely considered the most grueling touring series in all of Motorsports- what would posses a woman to partake? Well, Jarvis is not your average blonde haired, blue-eyed Hollywood film and television star.
Starting in 1988 this intense touring series quickly became dubbed “The Hell Tour” because of the grueling conditions that the drivers had to endure to compete. Not only is the constant racing financially straining for the drivers that compete, it is also physically and emotionally grueling. No hot showers, no privacy, no down time, constantly on the go, non-stop traveling, on and off the track. Even the most seasoned veteran will find this difficult, but Jarvis, with her flowing blonde locks and bright blue eyes, does seem to stick out like a sore thumb. But the last thing you should do is doubt that this beauty can compete.
A Stunt Professional on hundreds of projects since 1994 Jarvis isn’t a stranger to the inevitable chaos of high profile events. As a coordinator, stuntwoman, and stunt double Jarvis has been blown up, thrown off cliffs, and lit on fire. To put it lightly- she clearly isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty and isn’t one to fold under pressure. And she can drive.
As a rookie in dirt racing, she was “rookie-of-the-year” and placed 9th in the state of Michigan in a Late Model. The first time a rookie has ever been in the top ten. On the Rally America Series, Jarvis placed second in the nation in class – in her rookie season. She was the first woman to tackle the notoriously grueling Tecate-SCORE Baja 1000 as a solo woman driver in a Protruck. And because of her skills, she was chosen out of 84 women to drive a land- speed rocket car.
Now, she’ll take on the UMP Summer Nationals Hell Tour. Jarvis is asking fans and investors to become a part of history with her and Femmefatale Motorsports. She is seeking donations and sponsors for the tour. Jarvis has an Indiegogo page with a price breakdown of the cost of the races. This is a great marketing opportunity for those seeking Logo placement on her car.
When asked why she is racing, she said "It’s about inspiring women, inspiring people, to do things they normally would not.” Jarvis wants to be a positive female role model and show people and kids, you can do whatever you put you mind to- especially if it means making history."
