The Endurance category had some exceptional winners. Endurance is about strength, determination, speed (a lot of the time), and adrenalin. Our judges, John Constable (CEO of STA Travel and a man who thrives on adventure) and athlete Amy Hughes (who ran an incredible 53 marathons in 53 days) chose our two winners based on those key attributes, alongside their amazing achievements and big ambitions.
Put your hands together for one of our two endurance winners Georgia Shiels!
Georgia Shiels is a young rally driver who has learnt to drive on gravel, closed roads, and a left hand car – all without any tuition or guidance. She is on a mission to becoming the first ever female World Rally Champion.
I decided to sign up for Young Brits for the opportunity to work with a brand who support and mentor young British talent.
Particularly as I will be representing Great Britain in the Junior European Rally Championship 2016.
My friends are so proud of my achievement!
My phone has been going crazy with hundreds of people congratulating me on the success. I couldn’t have done it without them. They told everyone they met to vote for me.
The mentoring is going to be amazing.
I can’t wait to work with John Constable, CEO of STA Travel, to take my rallying career from success to success. His company has already helped thousands of young people fulfil their travelling dreams.
I have so many embarrassing stories…
On one of my first rallies when I was just 16 years old, I reversed into one of the marshals as no one had taught me how to reverse! He was OK. My ego wasn’t.
Ten years from now…
I will be the first ever female World Rally Champion. And I’ll be working on creating an agency to work with young drivers to help them achieve their goals, including fitness, driving, mental strength and sponsorship help.
“Life is not just about the perfect results. I’m sorry, that’s boring. Life is all about the entertainment. Life is about living it to the fullest.” Said one of the greatest rally drivers of all time, Ari Vatanen.
