The history making motor-racing Annie Seel inspires young women to get behind the wheel.
The Rally Princess of Sweden
Annie Seel made motor-racing history last year when she became the only Swede to ride both a motorcycle and a car in the Dakar Rally.

Very few women take part in the Dakar Rally in South America and Seel wants to encourage more women to get involved and has set up a women’s only rally course just outside of Stockholm.

Speaking to Sporthour’s Nathalie Rothschild, Seel says “we are all the same level from the beginning”, but that women sometimes need to find that confidence away form men.
