  • Women have always had a hard time breaking into professional auto racing, including NASCAR, Drag Racing and Land Speed Record Challenges.  If you're interested, here's a couple of movies that document the trials of women entering into a "Man's World."

    "Heart like a Wheel"  The Shirley Muldowney Story  (Drag Racing)
    "Silent Victory":  The Kitty O'Neil Story  (Land Speed Record) 


    These are five Formula One Woman drivers ...

    # Name Seasons Teams Entries
    (starts) Points
    1  Maria Teresa de Filippis 1958–1959 Maserati, Behra-Porsche 5 (3) 0
    2  Lella Lombardi 1974–1976 March, RAM, Williams 17 (12) 0.5
    3  Divina Galica 1976, 1978 Surtees, Hesketh 3 (0) –

    I'll have to try and find them ....thanks...There are none in England though...
    Germany has professional female drivers ...they have a female driver that takes people around the private race track where the public can take theirs cars to drive like maniacs.....Hopefully I might get to go there....:)

  • Cool ... that sounds like fun!  I got to drive the track at Laguna Seca once. Fun to see the track from the racer's point of view.

    I can drive off road bikes and Quads ...but bike racing leaves people with to many broken bones ...
    Do you ever watch the Isle of Man famous yearly TT races...?

  • No, but I've heard of them, of course ... OUR motorcycle racing doesn't get much TV coverage here in the states, let alone racing that happens aboard. OUR Kenny Roberts went aboard to contest the MotoGP circuit in Europe ... won the championship three out of four years and I don't believe it was televised over here. We could buy the tapes from Diamond P Sports ... that was about it.

    I didn’t want to break any TOS rules. I’m unsure if it would violate them. Here goes. Warning, this is purely a  joke. I was going to say the women were too busy nagging the men about their driving.

    LOL. I’m glad to know some people still have a sense of humor. Sadly, this will offend someone even though it’s a joke.

    Many of us tease each other all the time once we get to know them. I have known some members here for 9 years. No worries.
