Motorsport is one of the world's biggest money earners besides football and a few other sports.
Unfortunately unlike a lot of sports motorsport is predominately male oriented. Is this a problem? well yes in my view there are a lot of great talented girls & Ladies out there that want to race but a lot of race teams are reluctant to give them seats in their team formula 1 being the most common.
Thankfully there are lower series teams that are actively supporting them in the likes of the BTCC support series, as a motorsport fan I love to see new female faces mixing it up and to be honest at the moment some of my fav's include
Hannah Chapman – Celtic Mini cup – Ladies Champion 2014 UK
Hannah's a great inspiration to young ladies wanting to enter motorsport she often responds to her fans on Facebook and has a great sense of humour and calls her Mini Cooper race car Lola which she also often mentions in her posts on her fan page and shows pictures of
Sophia Florsch – Ginetta G40 Juniors UK
This girl is only 14 and could not race in her home country of Germany but instead of giving up on her dream's she moved to the uk and Joined the BTCC support package and the ginetta's which are probably one of the most popular Support races in the BTCC for the fun destructive nature of these races and also to see talent like Sophia's and the others develop.
I know a few others but to save the take being very long I will keep at these 2 lovely young ladies there others I also follow as well
While these lower level teams and series are taking the likes of young ladies and developing them into talented racers , there are still others out there that are opposed to women racing and come out with horrible comments “Like women can't drive at that level” but again thankfully that view is slowly dissolving like a Alka-Seltzer tablet with a lot but being replaced with as I say the above statements like “Reluctance to give them a seat”
Should stubborn teams look at a female racer in something like F1? Yes in my view it would increase the number of female race fans for starters something its been fighting for years and with numbers still falling and likely to continue is it time?.
And for the boys who would not want to see a pretty racer girl on the grid?
What's your view more girls in motorsport or less and do you want a girl in something like F1 or a touring car series ?
Sorry if this take is not brilliant but I am improving my already ok English with a English level 2 grammar refresher course in sept 15.
