Susie Wolff, BBC "Driven" Documentary - thoughts, raised....
Hello, again, folks.
This one nearly..... slipped the speedsix net, but I did mention it on last week's MWM Thread.
I recorded the Documentary and watched it this evening.
I thoroughly enjoyed it!! (and yes.... I am still pumped up after this weekend's RLM Broadcast from Silverstone!).
For me, the Documentary raised a few questions.
Why are there not more Female Drivers in Motor Sport? - High profile, or Local to you....?
Obviously, I could list many names of those, of whom... are, and have been.
BUT. The problem.. in the past... was physical strength.
These days, we have Racing Power Steering, "Flappy Paddle" Gear selection etc, etc...
So.... the only limitation is upper body strength to cope with G Forces.
Well, the Gym (and a good Physio) can sort that out.
So where are the Ladies?
If you have the Racing Talent, where are you?
Are we STILL restricted by stereotype?
Is it a question of time?
