Charlie Martin – #Petrolheads


We meet a determined hillclimb racer who built her own car despite having no experience, Charlie Martin.

Charlie Martin was interested in cars from an early age, but it was only after University that she began to see a possibility of becoming part of the motoring world.

She managed to buy a Peugeot 205 with a roll cage and spent a year working on it. Despite having no experience of working on cars, she was determined that nothing would stop her.

She contested several sprints and hillclimbs in the UK before she set her sights on competing in Europe. She built her own transporter and headed off to France to race, not even taking a support crew. And yet she proved herself a very competitive racer.
