Welcome to Rally Queens!

Hi and welcome to the Rally Queens website.

samira khanMy name is Samira Khan and whilst some say I often have my head in the clouds, I prefer to consider myself as a pilot for Kenya Airways. Whilst flying a plane is a lot of fun nothing beats the thrill of flying down a gravel road in a rally car. This is my true passion and after spending time co-driving for my uncle, Aslam Khan, I have now swapped seats and taken up rally driving myself.

I feel that I have nothing to prove and rally purely for fun and if I beat the boys then that's even better. The Rally Queens project was set up to allow us to raise the funds to compete in the 2011 East African Safari Classic and in the 2012 Kenyan National Rally Championship. With extended support from Kenya Airways, we will be tackling the same events in 2013.

As both myself and my co-driver are women, we are attracting a lot of media attention and are thus quite marketable to any company wishing to gain press coverage. And thanks to the endorsements of the likes of Michele Mouton and Yvonne Mehta, it's nice to know that we have a lot of support from across the globe.

Please join our Facebook group to keep up to date with our progress.
