Catie Munnings is a motoring prodigy. In her first year in the sport Catie won the FIA Ladies European Rally Championship making her the first Briton to win a European Rally title in over 49 years – all whilst sitting her A Level exams. Catie’s interest in motorsport began at an early age. She spent her childhood in her father’s workshop and as a passenger in his rally car. Aged 14, Catie began competing in auto-testing: a motorsport that develops car control and efficient manoeuvring. By 17, she was invited to test a factory rally car in the French Alps among the best drivers, cars, and teams in Europe. The teams were so impressed they offered Catie a drive for the following season. Catie had four months to train and find sponsorship – and she loved it.
Catie now competes at the highest level in European Rally Championship and she’s worked with an ice driving school with ex-world champions on the frozen lakes of Sweden. Following her success in the ERC, Catie has ambassador roles for: UN Tolerance Day, The London Motor Show, Sean Edwards Foundation, Woman Of the Future, IAM Roadsmart, Peugeot UK, as well as being shortlisted for The Sunday Times Young Sportswomen of the Year awards. Catie inspires a field much larger than motor sport. Not only does Catie compete in a male dominated sport but she also works closely with organisations that address gender ratios in the workplace and encourage the next generation to challenge gender stereotypes. She also presents Catie's Amazing Machines on the children's television channel CBeebies.
What the audience can expect
Her passion for life and doing what she loves is contagious. Having proven how much one can achieve in a year if they put their mind to it, Catie is an example of how a positive and determined mindset coupled with dedication and training can achieve limitless success. Catie helps her audiences recognise the boundaries the mind can erect - stifling self-belief and ambition - and explains how with training you can dismantle these boundaries to discover your capabilities.
