Nabila is a vibrant young woman, looking to make her mark in the world of motorsport. Having been introduced into Motorsport by her father, who caught the bug from his father who was a Safari specialist. It only then makes sense that as the third-generation Nabila had to carry the on the mantra. She got her first rally car at 15 and learnt how to drive around fields, this is when she realised that this was what she wanted to do! However due to educations commitments, she started competing later.
Nabila moved to the US in 2010 to complete high school in Florida and was accepted into University at American Universities, Kogod School of Business in Washington D.C, where she completed her degree, a BSBA in International Business, Entrepreneurship and Management and International relations at the end of 2014.
2015, was Nabila’s first year rallying, she passed the BARS test and went straight into competing in single venues. She spent part of the year training with Bill Gwynne at his rally school, in order to increase her driving skills. She was also able to drive her grandfathers restored Daf 55, from the 1971 East African Safari Rally, at the Eifel Rally in Germany, as well as Rauno Aaltonen’s Datsun 1600 SSS.
In 2016 the team decided to make a big jump and compete in, the DMACK Junior British Rally Championship. This was a huge step and a big learning curve, but there is nothing like jumping into the deep end and learning how to swim! The Junior class had some incredibly talented guys competing in it, Nabila was nervous but excited for the challenge. With an announcement at Autosport 2016, and joining the team MH Motorsport, the year was set.
With very little seat time in the new Fiesta R2, Nabila started the championship in far from desirable conditions, whilst also being the first time she ever drove in the forest. The Mid Wales Stages, and the British Rally Championship as a whole, was certainly a Baptism of Fire.
Circuit of Ireland was a massive challenge not only being a British round but also a European Round. The competition was fierce but Nabila in only her second event finished 4th in class, 1st in the European Ladies Championship, and 16th overall in the BRC. This was a big achievement when she had only driven the car for 3 months.
2016 was a major year for the young driver, in competing in the biggest championship in Britain, and finishing 8th out of 16 Juniors in her first year. With lots learned and experience gained Nabila will be looking to expand on her achievements in the next few years.
2017 saw Nabila become the BRC Ladies Champion, as she further progressed in the sport.
In 2018, Nabila decided to begin competing more abroad, with a progression into the Peugeot Rally Cup Iberica championship. It will allow her not only to compete in events in Spain and Portugal, but also expand her WRC experience, with Rallye Portugal, Spain and GB. Along with this Nabila will still compete in the BRC, in order to try and secure her title for the second year.
