Back in the old days, it was a big deal for women to drive racecars.
Men usually dominate the world of sports for whatever reason, but women often end up excelling at them too.
When people speak of women in racing, they usually are thinking about the pit babes with their sexy bodies and gros seins on display.
Well, we are here to educate you that that is not representative of reality. There are plenty of women out there who are just as talented behind a wheel as they are sexy.
So, below is a list of the sexiest but also most talented women in the world of racing.
Our picks for the Sexiest and most talented current and past female race car drivers
Lella Lombardi made her debut in the Formula 1 racing circuit in 1974.
She was one of few women who broke through the barrier into a sports world where most competitions were held for men.
She was able to prove that she could hang with the “big leagues,” though, by competing in 17 Grand Prix Formula 1 Championships, before her retirement in 1988.
She didn’t give up after her racing career ended; instead, she became an active businesswoman and owner.
Her presence at the Grand Prix was phenomenal, not only because she was the first woman ever to finish sixth in a World Championship event, but also because she was the first female Formula One racer to have done so.
Lombardi was one of the first women to drive professionally and claim championships in both touring cars and Formula One. She won six hours of racing at Pergusa and Vallelunga in 1979.
Milka Duno is another woman who can compete at the top level of motorsports.
She holds the record for the highest finishing position by a woman at the 24 Hours of Daytona.
Milka is an unusual one when it comes to female drivers – or anyone else for that matter.
She was once a model. It’s not common for models to be race car drivers.
She started driving race cars when she was 24 years old
It’s really amazing… Most people who become successful racers started racing at an early age.
If someone claims that Milka isn’t a skilled driver, they’re just plain wrong.
Simona de Silvestro
Another woman who has it going on right now is Simona de Silvstro.
She’s a Swiss race car driver who goes by the nicknames “The Iron Maiden” (a reference to a band) and “Swiss Miss”.
They’re both pretty unusual names. There’s one that’s totally hardcore, and another that’s totally ridiculous.
She’s well known for her success in the racing world and has won several races.
When it come to women who know what their talking about when it come to racing, Simona gets a ton of respect.
