- BECKY EVANS -
Becky Evans, aka Queen B, is one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming personalities in automotive. Her passion for car culture and modification is infectious. She grew up in a family of dedicated petrol heads, spending most of her childhood at drag strips and race tracks alongside her dad.
Becky represents an audience which she saw was going unnoticed by the car industry. She combines her encyclopaedic knowledge of all things automotive, with her passion for urban culture, to help spearhead a new wave of car lovers. Showcasing how to enjoy the industry in a way far more relevant way than what’s currently on offer.
Fuelled by a constant hunger to learn more about the industry around her, Becky spent the summer immersing herself in the drifting scene. Her journey started by understanding how the sport is positioned in the UK, before setting off to Japan and the US to learn more about its origins and how its evolving around the world. The end result was Becky building her own car with the ambition to compete in the sport in the near future.
With her influence and social following growing by the day, Becky’s stock as an automotive personality is rising just as fast. It appears that a new generation of car lovers has finally found its voice.
- CATIE MUNNINGS -
Catie Munnings is a 20 year old female Rally Driver competing in the European Rally Championship (ERC) . In only her first season of rallying, 19-year-old Catie Munnings became the Ladies European Rally champion in her Peugeot 208 R2, winning both of the rounds that she competed in. Catie’s success has seen her career skyrocket, netting her ties with organisations like Susie Wolff’s Dare To Be Different campaign and the IAM RoadSmart group.
Not bad for someone who first tested a rally car in September 2015!
Catie's career is slightly different, whilst she has grown up around motorsport with the family business, her route to international competition was far from traditional grass roots. Catie showed potential during a test and it was decided that she should fast track straight into the ERC, a steep learning curve to give her as much experience as fast as possible. hashtag ProjectKT has proved a very popular way to follow every step of her "in at the deep end" journey via social media channels.
In 2016, her first year of competition and aged just 18 Catie won the FIA European Rally Championship Ladies trophy. Rallying is a sport where the ladies compete directly against the men and Catie's ultimate goal is to compete in the World Rally Championship (WRC) This is the F1 of the rally world and Catie is right on track.
A young girl competing at this level in such a male dominated sport always attracts plenty of media attention and Catie is no exception, so much so that there is some very exciting news on the horizon later this year......
- ABBIE EATON -
If you're a car fan and you hadn’t heard of British racing driver Abbie Eaton before last year, you’ve probably heard of her now. In 2017, the GT racer got the call up of a lifetime to become TV show The Grand Tour’s test driver, seeing off a host of rivals for the role – including ex-F1 racer Mark Webber…
Since Abbie’s father Paul , who used to race himself, brought her to the race track aged just 2 months old Motorsport is truly in Abbie’s blood. At just 10 years old Abbie started Karting & competed for 4 years in the various karting echelons gaining many wins and podiums. Abbie moved onto cars aged just 15 & has since raced in the SAXMAX Championship and the Production Touring Car Championship, where she was the Class B champion. She’s also driven in the Mazda MX-5 SuperCup and was crowned the champion there as well.
After that, she drove in the GT Cup, the British GT Championship and with the Blancpain Endurance Series, where she was the first woman to finish first in her class. And when she’s not doing all of that, she also works as a driving coach at Silverstone.
