Hoonigan joined forces with Fiat to find the next great female driver to race the 400-horsepower specially made 124 Spider Abarth rally car.
The lifestyle-brand received over 150 entries and chose six drivers – Michelle Abbate (Las Vegas, Nevada), Collete Davis (San Francisco, California), Sally McNulty (Phoenix, Arizona), Sara Price (Canyon Lake, California), Rathyna Gomer (Colton, California) and Suzanne Valdivia (Modesto, California) – to compete for the title of “Next Female Hoonigan” and the opportunity to race the Abarth.
The drivers arrived at Hoonigan headquarters on May 24 and completed warm-up challenges before pairing off and road-tripping in production 124 Spider Abarth vehicles to the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Phoenix, Arizona. At Bondurant, the racers competed and proved their worth in 124 Spider Abarth production cars, aiming to earn the right to race in the rally car.

The winner will be named on Friday, July 14, following an additional competition, including the prestigious Mount Washington Hill Climb – a perfect venue given the hill climb heritage of the Abarth.
