Renee Brinkerhoff is the Founder and Driver of Valkyrie Racing where she currently races a 1956 Porsche 356 A coupe in road and rally racing events. In 2013, at the age of 57, in her first race car of any kind, Renee became the first woman in the 30-year history to win her class in the La Carrera Panamericana, an event known as the world’s most dangerous road race. Raised in the U.S. and Southeast Asia her enthusiasm for life was no doubt shaped by her surroundings. For 30 years a voice in her head told her she would some day race a car. In her three years of running the La Carrera Panamericana, Renee continues to be the only woman driver amidst 80 plus men.
