Even from a young age Charlie was attracted to speed & adventure, at age 6 she wanted to be a fighter pilot and over time this passion developed into a love of racing cars. Despite no family history of competing in motorsport, she knew it was her destiny was to race in the future, and after repeatedly visiting France to watch the Le Mans 24hr race she was hooked… she wanted to race a prototype on the closed roads of Europe.
But how do you do this when you live in England and have no one helping you? Without doubt Charlie is one of the most determined competitors you will ever meet – who else has the drive to buy a single seater, build their own transporter and travel to France without a mechanic or any pit crew to risk speeds of 250km/h on public roads?
Welcome to one woman’s story of bravery, ambition & self belief in the oldest (and quite possibly craziest) form of motorsport still in existence.
