Racing Pride

I'm Rowena Purdy and I'm an industry ambassador

About Me.

Rowena has been actively involved in motorsport for a number of decades. She has competed, and continues to compete, in an array of rally events as a driver, but has also acted as a navigator, organiser, instructor, marshal, official, commentator and reporter. Rowena’s main role will be helping Racing Pride to build a range of contacts and partners in rallying.

“As I enter my 51st year in competitive motorsport, but only my 6th as a transwoman, I have become more aware of the difficulties we must overcome. Racing Pride is just the movement of which LGBTQ+ competitors and supporters should be made aware. We can inspire and motivate as well as help LGBTQ+ individuals to become their true selves whilst engaging with motorsport at all levels and in all capacities, including as marshals and officials (without whom we cannot compete).”
