Yara Shalaby is Egypt's first female rally driver. She's mastered the sport in some of the country's toughest desert terrain, while also putting up with a lot of detractors - people telling her that women can't drive. In spite of that, she's risen up in the sport and has beaten many of her male competitors in the process. Get in touch: Presenter: Jo Fidgen Producer: Catrin Manel Picture and credit: Yara Shalaby
