There was a time when motorsport and the participation of women in it remained an alien concept. Not anymore. The example of the collaboration between Lamborghini Squadra Corse and Iron Lynx is a worthy one to underline the changing times. Here, a crew of women called Iron Dames takes control of a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2 with number 83 in a competition known as Race to Inspire.

Zipped and ready in their pink racing suits, the team of women comprises drivers, mechanics, engineers as well as managers. The age of the members ranges from 19 years old to 36 years old and each says that they are determined that slowly but steadily mentality toward motorsport will change. “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," they add.
