Mclaughlin becomes new BWRDC president
The British Women Racing Drivers’ Club has announced Lorina Mclaughlin as its new president.
She is one of a handful of female drivers to have driven Formula 1 machinery in competition and currently owns an ex-michael Schumacher Benetton B192 in which she set her ninth “fastest time by a lady driver” at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2018.
She has also set women’s records on the Goodwood hill in an ex-james Hunt Mclaren M23.
Her previous achievements include a second place in the 1974 British Formula 4 series, which earned her the Lord Wakefield Challenge Trophy for outstanding performance in motorsport by a woman. Later, she won the BARC Formula Ford 2000 championship.
She is now one of the names behind The Force F1 Legends.
Record holder: Lorina Mclaughlin
