Loving Z cars as long as she can remember - Diane bought her first Z, a beautiful sleek black 1992 300zx with lots of Stillen mods back in 1998. Immediately joining the Ontario Z Car club she got her first taste of the track at their fall event at Mosport.
She was hooked, attending every track day she could possibly sign up for all over Ontario. In 1999 she purchased a 1971 Datsun 240z (shown here) with her good friend Bill Dawson, and soon after purchased a Safari Gold coloured street version of the same car.
Diane took over full ownership of the racecar in the early 2000's and started travelling to many tracks all over North America to compete in Vintage and Non-Vintage race events. With the help of Greg Whitehead, Tony Silvaggi and others at Whitehead Performance (and countless dedicated and well loved friends) she accomplished many podiums and even CASC-OR Sprint and VARAC Group 70+ series championships.
Along the way she maintained her membership and close relationships with her Ontario Z Car friends. In 2013 Howie suggested she step up to help organize the track day for OZC's pitch on ZCON 2016. Delighted to help out she found herself surrounded by an amazing team of people who made great things happen. Looking forward to continue that experience, she stepped in to help out with Social Media starting in 2017. (As well as organizing the Winter BlizZard Karting Series - let's go!)
