Charlie is a British racing driver and LGBTQ+ activist, she has raced successfully in multiple disciplines including single seaters, GT cars and sportscars. In 2022 she finished 2nd in the North American Lamborghini Cup with teammate and OSOM Products CEO Jason Keats.
She has overcome huge adversity since transitioning mid way through her career, and works with leading LGBTQ+ charities Stonewall, Mermaids, Athlete Ally and Racing Pride to improve visibility, acceptance and inclusion in motorsport.
In 2020 she finished 4th in class at the Nürburgring 24hr in a BMW M240i, and now works with BMW as a Friend of the Brand. The combination of her proven track record, unstoppable determination and desire to succeed have all set the stage for one of the most unique & compelling stories in modern motor racing.
Her mission is to make LGBTQ+ history as the first transgender driver to compete at the oldest and greatest endurance race the World, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Welcome to one woman’s story of bravery, ambition & self belief.
If Martin attacks the challenge like she has the transition from hillclimbing to circuit racing, and transgender rights, then don’t bet against her making it to the World’s greatest sportscar enduro.
