Catherine Woods

Catherine Woods started out doing rally crosses and quickly moved up into a group 2 car alongside Simon Losier at the National level. Woods helped Losier with the Quebec Rally Championship in 2007. She sat with top driver ACP in a Porsche 911 back in 2007 at the Black Bear Rally in Canada.

Doing less rallies in 2008 after a bad crash at LSPR in 2007, Woods had the opportunity to sit with Christopher Duplessis at the Team O’Neil rally in 2008. They finished first overall in 2WD. The partnership continued at New England Forest Rally where they claimed 1st place in 2WD and the overall win in Group 5.

Woods is guided and mentored by her father Doug Woods, who has been involved in rallying for over 40 years. Woods’ father is the only North American to have ever won a WRC event alongside his driver Walter Boyce at the 1973 Press On Regardless Rally.

Catherine is still to date the youngest journalist at the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) to have been an on-air reporter. She was 19 years old when she first started as a correspondant for the local and national news. Woods covered a variety of different stories such as murders, fires, accidents, sporting events, community news, arts and entertainment and she also had the chance to interview the Pittsburgh Penguins during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
