There was a time when the exciting but dangerous sport of race car driving was purely a man’s world. It was unheard of to have a female race car driver. But those times are in the past. The sport has been invaded by females, and some of them are drop dead gorgeous. They could rival the Hollywood vixens and sultry singers any day. Why would these beautiful women risk life and limb in race car driving, when they could do many things safer? They look good enough to be models or actresses and earn much more. Maybe it is the thrill of danger, the need for speed. Whatever the reasons, these ladies make watching racing a whole lot more fun.
So check out some of the gorgeous girls of race car driving:
This lovely lass is a former drag racer who competed on the NHRA tour. She drove for John Force Racing, the team of her dad who is a 16-time NHRA World Funny Car champion. Courtney herself is the record holder of most Funny Car wins by a female driver in NHRA history, beating her sister’s record when Ashley Force Hood retired in 2011. Courtney was a former cheerleader of Esperanza High School in Anaheim, California. She is married to Indy Car racer Graham Rahal, who is the son of 1986 Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal. So racing is definitely in her blood, and she married into another racing family. She retired January last year, after a celebrated career in race car driving.
Claire Jedrek is a Singaporean race car driver married to Yuey Tan, another Singaporean racer. They both love fast cars, and live life in the fast lane, literally. Claire had just given birth recently to their 2nd baby, and plan to raise a new generation of racers. While she was pregnant, Claire stopped racing, but was a presenter for different international racing series, as well as an emcee. But, Singapore’s only female race car driver will definitely be back in racing soon. Surprisingly, she took up racing only in 2013, and placed 2nd in the 2015 Malaysian F1 support race. She and her husband own a go-kart circuit, The Karting Arena. She also is a motorsports contributor in Evo magazine.
Natalie is young, only 22 years of age, and she definitely is a head-turner. But this beauty is also an american professional stock car racing driver. The Decker family was prominent in snowmobile racing in the 1970s and 1980s. They raced alongside the family of Danica Patrick, another popular female race car driver in this listing. The aunt of Natalie is the one who introduced Danica’s parents. Natalie was more inclined to gokarts when she was nine years old. In 2 years, she won 4 karting championships. A lot has happened since then with NASCAR, ARCA, and sports car racing. She may be young, but her resume in racing is one of the most accomplished. You are never too young to create a name for yourself, especially with good looks as well.
