Hi I'm Becky! I've been interested in cars and driving for as long as I can remember - when I was young it was so frustrating having to wait until I was 17 and allowed to drive properly, however once I reached that milestone I was straight out onto the road!

After many years watching rallying on the television I got my first real taste of the sport in 2001 when I did a one day rally driving course as a birthday present. After a day spent power-sliding and handbraking a Mk II Escort around in the gravel, I immediately caught the rally bug and made it my mission to somehow get properly involved in the sport!

I started off by doing a bit of marshalling at various forest rallies which was a great way to learn more about the sport and to meet more like-minded people, but my real chance came in 2006 when I entered the national Lady Quest rally driving competition and, after a lengthy assessment process, I was lucky enough to win!

The Lady Quest scholarship prize was a series of events in an MG ZR rally car, beginning with the very tough Lombard Rally in October 2006, a real baptism of fire with four days (and nights!) of competition all over the country.

In 2007 I undertook a programme of events in order to qualify for my National A competition licence. This enabled me to end my Lady Quest scholarship with the prestigious Swansea Bay rally. My time in the little ZR finished on a high when I won my class in Swansea, an achievement I was delighted with.

After a few events in a VW Polo 1400 I made a full return to competition in 2010 and I competed in the national BTRDA Rally First championship which takes place all over England and Wales. I used a Rally4Real Nissan Micra and despite having a bad crash on one event I took the BTRDA Ladies championship title, an achievement I am very proud of.

For 2011 I purchased a new car, a Ford Fiesta ST which I used in the high-profile BRC Challenge championship. Another very successful season saw me win the BRC Challenge Ladies title and also take second place in the overall championship for my class which I was over the moon with! I ended the year by competing on the world championship Rally GB event where I battled through four days of tough competition to win my class.

Getting married and having a baby meant that my only outing in 2012 was at the Ormskirk Motorfest and I have since had another child so I've been away from competing even if my car hasn't - my husband has been using it! I am hoping to make a full return to competition in 2018.
