Britain’s Catie Munnings, whose original ambition was to become a vet, started competing in motorsport from a young age after being inspired by her father, Chris Munnings, who ran the London rally school at Brands Hatch. Growing up on a farm, Catie was used to thrashing around on quad bikes from a young age before she started to enter local motorsport events across the UK. In 2016 and at just 18-years-old, Munnings made her ERC début at the Ypres Rally behind the wheel of a Peugeot 208 VTi R2 for Saintéloc’s Junior Team and went on to win the European Rally Championship Ladies’ trophy. In 2017 and 2018, she claimed a series of stage class victories while also forging a successful TV career as the host of CBeebies show, Catie’s Amazing Machines. In 2020, Catie made her debut in the FIA World Rally Championship before she was signed by Genesys Andretti United Extreme in 2021 to compete in Extreme E alongside Timmy Hansen. Catie and Timmy won the inaugural Arctic X Prix in Greenland and scored three podiums on their debut season. Catie finished the year third in the overall drivers’ standings.
