Louise Cook made history in 2012 becoming the FIA Production car Cup for Drivers of 2WD Champion and the first female to gain a FIA Rally Championship Title not specifically for women.
Louise got her first taste of driving when her late father bought her a battery powered car aged 6. Louise wrote off the conservatory window twice, 2 garden fences and took the front axle clean off.
Louise’s first taste of rally driving was at 19 whilst studying Car Design at Coventry University. Louise entered a competition and was runner up from 1000 women. This gave Louise the confidence to gain her rally licence and enter her first ever rally thanks to her student loan.
Louise financed a career in rallying by selling small spaces on her rally car. Louise walked the local industrial estates and trade shows managing to get 300 £50 supporters, enough to get her first season under way in 2010.
