Nothing makes driver Emme Hall happier than climbing behind the wheel of any air cooled VW desert racer and pinning it. In addition to driving for Mega Monkey Motorsports, she has been an occasional guest driver and co-driver with Desert Dingo Racing in their Class 11 VW. She is one half of Team Courage Gazelles and while the team was sidelined for a year due to health reasons of the navigator, they plan to compete in the 2013 Rallye Aicha des Gazelles, a 9 day all female rally through the grueling terrain of Morocco using only a compass and an outdated map. She can think of nothing more awesome!
Evoking a high energy personality with a determined disposition, she earned 2nd in class with the Dingos at this year’s USA 500 and first in class at the recent 24 hour endurance race with VORRA. She is the current record holder at the Buffalo Peak hill climb in Colorado, co-driving for JT Taylor in an ultra-4. For the past four years Emme has driven in the annual Powder Puff race in Barstow to raise money for Cedar Sinai Breast Cancer Research Center. She’s finished 4th and 2nd in class, unfortunately was DNF in 2011 with a broken torsion bar, and took 1st in 2/1600 this year.
Emme has been featured in Dirt Sports, Dusty Times, S&S Off Road Magazine, Dirt Newz, Race Dezert, Moto IQ and Gearbox Magazine. You also may have heard her running her mouth on internet radio shows such as The Down and Dirty Off Road Show, Speed Freaks, and the Off Road Round Up on KCBQ. She also blogs for Female Racing News. Emme holds an MFA in Costume Technology from North Carolina School of the Arts and is also a graduate of Yale School of Drama. She lives in Washington DC and works at a well known regional theatre when she isn’t reviewing new cars for Roadfly TV, the fourth largest car review channel on You Tube. She autocrosses her 2nd generation Mazda Miata whenever she can.
