Is it a man’s world?

8 September 2017
Motorsport is one of the increasingly few sporting activities where women are hugely under-represented when it comes to the list of competitors. But looking behind the scenes, there are countless women actively involved in motorsports globally. They organise events, are active in race control, as team managers, mechanics, engineers, in marshalling and fulfilling a host of other important roles. The same is true for the Blancpain GT Series. In the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup alone, there are six women who inspire others. Meet the team managers of the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup: Lucie Nahodilova (Emil Frey Lexus Racing), Lucie Horova (ISR Racing), Astrid Lang (Rinaldi Racing) Tiziana Borghi (Kessel Racing), Sarah Ahmed (ROWE Racing) and Nancy Kahnt (Attempto Racing). In this six-part series, we will look at the women who play a major role in making the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup a success.
