Iran's top female race driver gets her license

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

NICOSIA -- Iran's best female racing car driver Laleh Seddigh was awarded on March 17 her International Racing Driving License during the BMW School Series at the Bahrain International Circuit in Manama.

Seddigh, a PhD student from Tehran, is considered to be one of the most promising-ever racing drivers in Iran. She has even outperformed the best male racing drivers in the country.

Seddigh's driving skills have earned her the nickname "a little Schumacher" after the German Formula One champion.

Asked by the BBC how men felt about her success, Seddigh, 28, replied, "Most of them, I think, are jealous, and I don't care about that."

"I am just going and going and hoping to be champion in the next years and I will really try to achieve that goal," she added.

Seddigh said that she hoped that her example would inspire more women to take up car racing. Indeed, the sport is seen to be attracting growing numbers of Iranian women.

I am not! I don't know driving yet, why would I be jealous? :P

Said the point on hijaab cz she'll be getting International appearances now. It will be really good if she really sticks to hijaab, and extend it a few inches towards here forehead. Her own choice anyways. But I don't want something like, hijaab when she's in Iran, and when she moves out, no hijaab.

Off topic; Mrs. Seddigh wears hijab whenever she leaves the country for races, public appearances etc. I think shes the only exception for a excellent female driver :P

LOL Al Aleemu .. have you seen Iranian drivers come out of Iran and drive??? People honk at them the whole freakin time!!!

And don't get me started on drivers in IRAN !!!! They're always banging into your mirror because they drive so freakin close to you! And yeah, if you manage not to crash into someone, someone will manage to crash into you. Or you're driving real fast in the highway and some mofo is riding his donkey in the highway !!! OK ... so that doesn't happen too often, happened to me once and it wasn't a donkey it was just a really REALLY slow tractor.
