The news come in light of Logan making history as the first female to ever compete at the F4UAE championship.
Logan Hannah “This is a big step forward in my driving career, an excellent opportunity to learn, grow and mature as an athlete. I appreciate the opportunity offered by TBOS and Arden, I recognise their commitment to me and I acknowledge that it will take determination and hard work together to succeed.”
The Business of Sport CEO Jamie Horner, was on hand when the deal was signed and is looking forward to being involved in Logan's development in the sport over the coming years:
Jamie Horner “We are delighted that Logan has joined the TBOS Driver Management Programme. She is a very talented, driven and personable young woman who is showing all of the attributes required to succeed at the highest level.
Becoming the first female to compete in UAE F4 is, in itself, a significant achievement. We are looking forward to playing a key role in her future development on and off track."
This step up for 2018 comes after a milestone pair of racing seasons for the 16-year-old girl racer, where she took third place overall in the Al Ain Raceway Challenge Trophy, reached the finals of the Ginetta Junior Scholarship competition and won Karting Magazine’s Female Driver of the Year award.
The biggest step was breaking new ground and moving into single-seater racing via the UAE F4 Championship. After making the step into Formula Cars, specifically an FIA F4 Certified Championship, Logan is able to set her sights on the next steps to further develop as a driver and continue her racing career.
After a very successful opening test in the UAE F4 car, BBC News Scotland were able to catch up with Logan and got her feedback on her latest experience as a girl racer, breaking further ground in a male dominated sport.
Logan Hannah “(The test) went as well as could be expected! It was my first time on that track. I’d driven it on simulators, so I knew which way the track went and what gears to select when going into the corners. But it’s totally different when you’re doing it for real, dealing with the g-forces, the wind and the heat. After driving that car, though, it’s just made me want to do this even more.

Attention now heads towards the 2018 season for Logan, working with TBOS and the YRDA – the next steps on her racing career will be announced soon!
