Penny Mallory


Against all the odds, Penny Mallory became the first woman in the world to compete in a World Rally Car. The story started when Penny was just fourteen. Leaving home, she found herself in London seeking a better life, but spent nearly 2 years in homeless hostels. As Penny’s life became increasingly out of control, she realised that she alone could take control, and through grit and determination, she worked her way to becoming a sound engineer and a graphic artist. A chance event allowed her to realise a childhood dream of driving a rally car and she was hooked.

With an underlying passion for the fast and the furious, Penny has also completed 4 marathons, various hell runners and a Triathlon. She has learnt to play polo and has recently completed a successful ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. She is patron of Modern Muse, a National movement to inspire the next generation of young women.
