Meet the Iron Dames, a team comprised of only women drivers who are set to kick some ass and take some names, especially with their latest racecar - the team has moved from Ferrari to Lamborghini, and that means more style, more speed and a pretty damn cool Hot Pink Huracán. Founded in 2018 by Deborah Mayer, Iron Dames is a project aimed at supporting women in motorsport, from drivers to mechanics, engineers, and managers. The race team is now comprised of four female drivers, Rahel Frey, Michelle Gatting, Sarah Bovy, and Doriane Pin. As the name suggests, Iron Dames is a project run by the well-known outfit Iron Lynx, the Italian racing stable chosen by Lamborghini Squadra Corse as the operating team for the IMSA Endurance Cup 2023. They will be helping the team excel behind the wheel of that absolutely amazing-looking Hot Pink Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 - which will compete under race number 83. The team shares one vision: “We wear a pink suit, it’s true. But when we put our helmets on, we’re drivers who want to win. And nothing more.” Racing head-to-head with their male colleagues, Iron Dames will be competing in the IMSA Endurance Cup at Sebring this March. The four team members will do that usual driver swap so they each get decent stints in during the longer endurance races.

Team member Rahel Frey was the first woman to win a Formula 3 race and she has been a professional driver since 2011, and in this case, she also doubles as the project manager for the Iron Dames race team. She is committed to using her 20 years of experience “to grow the role of women in motorsport.” Michelle Gatting, born in Denmark, has 14 race wins, 61 podiums, and 8 pole positions in her career so far - a brilliant record in anyone’s books. Sarah Bovy, born in Belgium, is now in her 3rd season with the Iron Dames and says she loves the battle on the track. Doriane Pin, a French driver, has shown promising skills and has many times been on the podium of the GT3 Michelin Le Mans Cup. Iron Dames is doing their part in pushing the racing world beyond limits and gender barriers and with a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 as the weapon of choice they’re going to be pushing hard. As Deborah Mayer, Project Founder of Iron Dames said, “We race to inspire women to follow their dreams and take the first step into motorsport because we have proven that anything is truly possible.”  The new Huracán GT3 EVO2 the team is campaigning was designed and developed by Lamborghini's Squadra Corse at Sant'Agata Bolognese in Italy and is based on the street-legal Huracán STO. It features that iconic screaming normally aspirated V10 that sends just about 480 Kw to the rear wheels.

Take a look at the YouTube video that shows you more about the Iron Dames and their race team and a bit on what they're all about - they do need to get a new vid up though because of this upgrade from Ferrari to Lamborghini: IRON DAMES: Women driven by dreams | Iron Dames
