There aren't many Australian race car drivers that can say they are their own team owner or manager but Emily Duggan is one of them.
The Brisbane born driver currently drives in both the Super 3 Series and the Toyota 86 Racing Series, where she sits sixth and 35th in the respective standings.
Being her own boss has seen Duggan take responsibility for a range of things from inputting paperwork, preparing booklets for her mechanical engineer and a travel itinerary to making sure her team have meals during races.
While there are both negatives an positives in being the team owner and managers, it's not something Duggan recommends.
"If I had to do it again...I probably wouldn't do it that way but I had no other option," she said.
Duggan does this all while juggling two jobs to support her dreams. One as night fill at Woolworths and the other at an installation business.
"I don't mind that aspect of it because I know that it allows me to continue racing," Duggan said.
"It's something that you just kind of have to do, I don't come from a wealthy family.
"So it just what you have to do, but if you do it with a smile on your face, then you'll enjoy anything."
Growing up Duggan wasn't involved in motorsports and it was only in 2014 that she started coming into the sport.
"It was always something that I really wanted to be a part of that kind of got shot down as soon as I mentioned anything about it," she said.
"So it wasn't until a little bit later that I was able to take my own path and buy my own car and start racing."
