Seddigh started driving at the age of 13, taught by her father. She passed her driving test at 18.
Seddigh had to get special permission from a local ayatollah in order to compete against men. Permission was givin since driving is not deemed a contact sport, and on the condition that Seddigh would confirm to dress-codes.
Seddigh's story is featured in a BBC TV documentary called Girl Racer, transmitted in 2008.
