Excerpted from Racer.com, Lyn St. James discusses the future of women in motorsports:
I’m encouraged to see so many more girls and women actively engaged in racing in various roles across all forms of motorsports. It takes a critical number of anything to make an impact, and support the idea that there is growth and change. It’s much easier today to find out how to join a car club or organization of like-minded people who enjoy what you love, and to learn what’s out there.
It’s hard to single out individuals because there are so many, but here are some who are doing great things already, who have a bright future ahead of them, and who have received support from industry leaders to help advance their careers. Besides having the talent and desire to succeed, what impresses me most is how the leaders of motorsports are not only recognizing how important it is to provide the support, but they’re taking action and doing it.
