Today, all-female racing team, Iron Dames, has confirmed its participation at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, with Sarah Bovy, Michelle Gatting, and Rahel Frey driving their Ferrari 488 GTE car up the iconic Hillclimb on all four days of the iconic motoring event.

With cars from the past and present appearing at Goodwood House in West Sussex, England on 23–26 June, the event is a perfect opportunity for the Iron Dames to show its striking livery as well as spread the team’s message of female inclusivity in motorsport. Iron Dames was established in 2019 to encourage women into motorsport at all levels, from drivers, through to management and engineers and is achieving great results on track.

Iron Lynx Team Principal, Andrea Piccini, said: “We are honoured to be invited and take part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed with one of our GTE cars. It’s one of the most beautiful and iconic motorsport events in the world, with some incredible winning cars from the past several decades on show for everyone to see.

“It will be a memorable experience for the whole team, and especially the Iron Dames, as this is the first time we have taken part in an event such as this. It’s not really about racing and being the fastest on the Hillclimb, but more about sharing a mutual love and passion for racing.”

The 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed will run from Thursday 23 June to Sunday 26 June. You can also follow Iron Dames on social media platforms here.
