A Brief History of Women in Motorsports

The first motorized tricycle race for women that we know of took place as early as 1897. Comparing these pioneering ladies to modern day racers shows one major similarity, courage. The Sports Techie community blog readers and followers represents thousands of women across the planet as equals to men. Yet, to this day motorsports are associated with dudes and are usually seen as a type of sport showing masculinity at its finest.

This discipline is one of the very few where men and women can compete against each other in big competitions, as well as there being ‘female’ clubs and associations to inspire, promote and protect sportswomen.  For this reason, in hope to motivate, we are presenting you with a brief history of women in motorsports.

Watch as Kia takes you on an animated journey since before most any of us were born, to  the roaring ‘20s when the gas gauge was invented up until last decade and the integration of GPS tech. I have seen cars from the 1960’s era onward, our five month old baby has seen none of it before we watched it together for the Sports Techie community blog and both wondered memories are triggered when you see the introduction of rubber tires, power steering, air conditioning, and of course, the radio that morphed into the record player, cassette player and CD player...
