Penny was the first (and remains the only) woman in the World to compete in a World Rally Car (the Formula 1 of Rallying).

Penny’s early years were devastated by family alcoholism and mental illness. By 14 she could bear no more and left home, never to return. She found herself in London alone, and homeless for over three years. As Penny’s life spiralled out of control, she realised that she alone could take control of her life. A chance event allowed her to realise a childhood dream of driving a Rally Car and she was hooked. She turned her life around, and against all the odds went on to become the first woman in the World to compete in a World Rally car. She made the impossible possible.
