The topic of advancing women in motorsport has been raised many times around the table at meetings of the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) Endurance Commission, chaired by Richard Mille, as well as by Michèle Mouton, the famous French driver, head of the FIA commission for Women in Motorsport. Too often with the same conclusion that, despite the emergence of new talent, access to the highest levels remains a challenge: the few who make it are often far from being included in the top teams.
A man of strong convictions, as well as being a man of action, Richard Mille lost no time taking the lead and creating an all-women team. The LMP2 category, open exclusively to privately owned teams, makes it possible to use an ORECA 07 chassis with a 600 hp Gibson engine, fitted with Michelin tyres. Technical support for these drivers is provided by the Signatech team belonging to Philippe Sinaut, WEC champion and winner of the last 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP2 category.
The Richard Mille Racing Team is here for the long haul, haul, competing in LMP1 season championships and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
'For more than a decade, we have worked hard to promote women in our sport, trying to open the door so women can have an equal opportunity to show they have the talent to compete at the highest levels'
Michèle Mouton, president of the FIA's Women and Motorsport Commission
