Welcome to Turbos and Tiaras UK
Fun loving all girl car club for those who love their cars, bikes, anything with an engine
Remember to check out our other sections in the CAR SCENE
On the eve of lockdown, in a group chat on Facebook, prompted by a collective drive for an active, fun, accepting and safe space for all female petrolheads: Turbos and Tiaras UK was born. The group was founded by Claire Pooley and Emma Drew, two self-confessed car nuts, as a place that champions female empowerment, individuality and supports all female petrolheads no matter if their interest is in; cars, motorcycles, quad bikes, boats, planes, and even tractors! No matter what your passion, if it has an engine, it is welcome at Turbos and Tiaras UK.
Claire got her first car in 2007, a Fiat Punto named Felix. She has always named her cars, her current car, a Modified Ford Fiesta Red Edition, is named Joey! She got into the car scene a year later attending shows and meets, modifying her cars and making friends along the way. She has a love for Fiestas, all Fords really, modification, expressing herself through her vehicles and enjoying what other people do to their vehicles too!
Emma started out with cars young, being influenced by her dad's passion and when she met her husband she was further supported in the scene by his love of cars too. Her first car was a Blue Mk2 Ford Fiesta, which turned out to be quite the rust bucket! It was finally sent to the big highway in the sky by way of banger racing! Following this came a few different cars: MG ZR 105, Suzuki Swift, MG ZR 160, Toyota Aygo and finally her current car a BMW 135i E88 convertible with 380 horses, she loves the standard lines on this beauty so will keep it unmodified.
In 6 short weeks, the group has grown to over: 800 members on Facebook, 500 followers on Instagram, a small but growing group on Roadstr to house growing network of ladies there to support each other, enjoy each other’s enthusiasm and help one another with tips on how to work on your own vehicle, where to purchase parts or mods, what vehicle to buy and other non-vehicle related chat too!
Claire and Emma are supported by a team of online moderators and area reps who are already planning their first local meets after lockdown is over. The team are working together to organise national events, convoys to pre-booked events and cross club meets with other local and national clubs. This club is still young but showing plenty of promise! One to keep an eye on in the future!
