Woman’s Crush Wednesday: Penny Harrison
Written by Bruna Brito, Edited by Harshi Vashee
Penny Harrison is the head of the social media of W Series, the women’s championship using the Tatuus F3 T-318, the race car is similar to the latest FIA F3 specification.
Penny has been working for the Series since 2018, being one of the co-founders and idealists of the championship whose goal is to inspire girls to practice kart and getting more women into the base of the sport. The W Series mission is based on the idea that if you can see it, you can be.
Harrison has worked for Mclaren for four years, her work and excellence earned her a nomination for The Drum Social Buzz Award with the British team. Again being nominated in her recent years, as in charge of the W Series media.
Not only does Penny hold her multiple nominations working on the papaya team, but also her amazing friendship with Charlotte Sefton, communications manager for the McLaren drivers.
In her words Penny describes her purpose with the WSeries: “I am very proud to be a part of something so innovative. We’re not saying men and women can’t compete again (far from it), but we’re here to create opportunities, training, and experience.”
Faithful to her ideas, competent and determined, this is how we see Penny Harrison’s work on and off the track. We as DIVEBOMB wish her every success in her career and may she continue to inspire thousands around her.
