Grip Trained!

I’ve never driven or raced on a rally ‘cross track’. Then, to be racing at Holjes Sweden – it was certainly not how it looks on TV. From the driving seat its wildly different! It is a totally different discipline to what I have been used to and what I trained for many years to do.Continue reading “Grip Trained!”

…..Shhhhhh!!

Only EV racing drivers will understand this most ‘un-natural’ feeling of sitting, poised on the start line, in a deathly quiet race car….. hands and feet …. at the ready!

Pants on Fire!!

You may not know this but some drivers have lucky underwear and they often form part of a routine.

I have had many messages of support from fellow drivers, teams, mechanics, potential sponsors, friendsContinue reading ““Blood, Sweat but no tears!””

First Test Drive – Austria

Natalie Barratt British Female Rally Driver – Here is footage produced by Stard on my first test drive in Austria – 8th July 2020. A historical moment as I was the first woman to drive this car. Personally, it was my first drive of a rally cross car after some time being out of the driving seat and being back behind the wheel brought tears of joy to my eyes. Thank you to Stard for this footage.
