Reedy Race Announces First-Ever Female Competitor—And She’s Only 11!

The lists for who is racing and who is waiting are done and posted for the 2017 Reedy Race of Champions for off-road and a nice surprise was to see young 2016 Junior European 4WD Champion Malin Karlsen will be competing in the Invitational Class. At only 11-year-old, the Xray factory driver will be the first female Invitational driver in the 23-year history of the event, and I’m sure will have a lot of pros shaking in their shoes. Click this link to see our post about her when she was still only 10-years-old and beat current IFMAR 2WD World Champion Spencer Rivkin. Check out the video below to see her practicing recently with her Xray XB4.
