However, Angelo found out the exciting news a bit later than expected. 

She received five calls from her manager while at work but she was unable to call back until her shift ended so when she called back she didn't know what was about to happen.

"He said 'we did it'," Angelo said.

"I'm like, 'what are you talking about?'.

There had been so much organisation and behind the scenes work going on that they forgot to tell Angelo about the exciting news. 

"It was a good surprise," she laughed. 

However, the Melbourne-native hasn't got long to prepare with the first round of the TCR Australia Series starting at the Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend. 

While those from the outside might see this as a challenge, it hasn't been one for Angelo who has done the best to prepare herself if the chance to race popped up.

"It's been good because I've had this little thing in the back of my mind knowing I'm going to be the best prepped I can," she said.

"I'm going into this weekend having no expectations, a clear mindset and no overthink things too much."
