As a former Rally Champion and World Rally Championship competitor, Penny became the first woman ever to compete in a World Rally Car (the equivalent of an off road Formula 1 car).
Penny is an expert automotive broadcaster she has fronted numerous programmes including Channel 4’s Driven, ITV’s The Used Car Roadshow, and Discovery’s Classic Car Show. She reports live for ITV’s Daybreak and BBC Breakfast.
In her top selling book Take Control Of Your Life Penny Mallory uses her driving successes as analogies of how you can transform your life. In 9 Special Stages she shows you how to identify goals, design strategies and have the mental discipline to achieve them, charting her life from homeless teenager to successful businesswoman.
A highly sought after motivational speaker and conference host Penny also works in schools and prisons to help people get their life on track.
Penny’s passion for working with elite sports people to help them ‘get their head in the right place’ has led to her working with top golfers and racing drivers to significantly improve their mental performance when competing. She is a qualified Sports Psychologist and Performance Coach.
A mother of two she still finds time to set herself a new challenge each year to test her own comfort zone. Last year she completed an expedition to Europe’s highest mountain, Mount Elbrus, taking the tough route via the remote north face. She is also a boxer, marathon runner and active supporter of her two chosen charities Barnardo’s and Crisis.
