We have started off a journey for the girls and the team. The aim is to move from the British Cross Country Championship where the girls won their class in 2021 into the European Baja series and ultimately compete at the famous Dakar Rally.

2023 will likely see a change in vehicle for the team, watch this space for more news on that and if you are interested in buying our current T2 Mitsubishi Pajero, more details can be found here – https://bit.ly/3G7CrQ5

“It will be a tough route to follow but we have come a long way in a short space of time and we have a crew and backroom team talented and determined enough to cope with it.”
– Team Principal – John Hardy.

“We are very much looking forward to our second competitive season, and looking to build on the successes of 2021. We are on a journey that promises so much over the next few years. And we are so grateful for all those supporting us in our endeavours”
Sponsor and Partnerships Manager – Dean Faulkner


Excite Rally Raid is a privately owned motorsport team specialising in off-road and cross country rallying.

The Team is based in the south of the UK in Dorchester, Dorset with offices also in Woking, Surrey. We run a unique all-British, all-female crew starting out on a journey to compete in the world famous Dakar Rally. The girls demonstrate the virtues of women in motorsport and in technology and engineering in a wider view.
