One of the highlights of 2022 for women in motorsport was Iron Dames winning the Gold Cup at 24 hours of Spa, one of the most prestigious GT3 races in the world. It was the first time for an all-female team to win this endurance race.
Iron Dames held two pole positions this year, and they were the first all-female team to reach Le Man’s Hyperpole.
Iron Dames was a special project by Deborah Meyer, president of the FIA women in motorsport commission. Current Iron Dames drivers are Sarah Bovy, Rahel Frey, Michelle Gatting, and Doriane Pin.
In a statement after the 24-hour spa win, the team said, “We drive in pink suits in a pink car, and this is just underlining the message we want to spread about getting females involved in motorsport. It was a tough race, and we keep fighting, as hopefully more successes can follow this.”
