THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE
RACING ON EVERY CONTINENT TO END CHILD TRAFFICKING
LA CARRERA PANAMERICANA
DATE: OCT 13-19, 2017 7 DAYS
Valkyrie Racing's world record attempt to race one car on all seven continents started in North America in the most challenging and treacherous tarmac race in the world, La Carrera Panamericana. 2,000 miles and a 7-day gauntlet through Mexico on roads with sheer drop-offs and few guardrails. Making history – Valkyrie Racing placed first in class.
DATE: APRIL 16-21, 2018 6 DAYS
The largest, fastest tarmac race in the world where hundreds of competitors race 6 days and 1,200 miles through the remote Tasmanian wilderness. With over 300 participants, we were the only female driven team and came away with the well-earned Targa Plate.
CAMINOS DEL INCA
DATE: OCT 20-38, 2018 9 DAYS
One of the oldest and highest elevation rallies in the world – our team raced through the Andes in Peru on gravel roads at altitudes over 15,000 ft. The only foreign entry -- and the first and only classic car to compete – Valkyrie Racing proudly crossed the finish line in Lima.
PEKING TO PARIS
DATE: JUN 2 - JULY 7, 2019 36 DAYS
One of the longest, toughest driving challenges in the world, this life-altering rally tackled both Asia and Europe. The 9,300-mile route began with roadless terrain & river crossings as we traversed the Gobi Desert. Considered the Everest of endurance races – the 356 made it to Paris with cheers of triumph.
EAST AFRICA SAFARI CLASSIC
DATE: NOV 28 - DEC 6, 2019 9 DAYS
This rally launched us into the world's toughest historic motorsport race. A nine-day battle over gravel roads open to local traffic and wild African animals. Our car was the first Porsche 356 to ever compete in an off-road rally of this caliber. The 3,000 mile route through the wilds of Kenya and Tanzania is notorious for sending cars airborne one minute and submerged in water the next. During the rainiest season in 40 years, we proudly accomplished this major feat and were the only woman driver, and all ladies team to compete.
DATE: WINTER 2020
The final, and most dangerous and epic trek of the World Rally Tour, is at the southernmost tip of our planet -- Antarctica. The car will undergo a total metamorphosis to brave the treacherous ice, extreme winds and cold of this polar region for 356 miles. The team will also be attempting a world land speed record for the Antarctic continent.

ABOUT VALKYRIE RACING
Valkyrie Racing is non-profit racing team led by Renée Brinkerhoff: an American racing driver best known for her success in the some of the most historic and challenging endurance rallies all over the world.
Renée's racing experience began with the 2013 La Carrera Panamericana, and she has since taken several class wins on this event, including a Sport Menor class win on the 2017 event: the first win in this class for a woman.
But the real mission behind Valkyrie Racing is the Project 356 World Rally Tour: an adventure that involves rally racing on all seven continents. Renée's lust for life and devotion to her classic yet custom Porsche 356 rally car has captured much media attention, which she is using to raise awareness of and funds for the fight against child trafficking. The next and final stage of this World Rally Tour is the Antarctica Ice Challenge, where Renée will race her custom Porsche 356 across the frozen terrain of Antarctica.
Our efforts have so far raised more than $500,000 dollars for the cause, and 100% of the donations have gone to the Valkyrie Gives charitable offshoot, which are distributed amongst leading charities and carefully vetted aid agencies working in this field.
