24 Hours of Le Mans – The web series dedicated to the Iron Dames project
A new web series shares details of the Iron Lynx team's all-female driver line-up competing in the European Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Iron Dames is a project created and managed by Ferrari ambassador Deborah Mayer with the goal of supporting women in auto racing. Since 2019, an all-female driver line-up including Manuela Gostner, Rahel Frey and Michelle Gatting has been competing in the European Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the Iron Lynx team's Ferrari 488 GTE. These women are helping to shatter the glass ceiling in motorsport: in barely two years, they have cultivated considerable experience and reached a remarkable level in competition. Last year, the crew finished the 88th 24 Hours of Le Mans in ninth place in the LMGTE Am class.
A recently released web series covers the adventure in six 20-minute episodes with behind the scenes info, daily life off the track, paddock interviews and race action. One entire episode is dedicated to their participation in the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans.
This project is supported by the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission.
