Sport 4 Development Ireland had a chance to speak with Irish Touring Car Driver Nicole Drought yesterday regarding International Women’s day. Nicole had this message for women everywhere; “Happy International Women’s Day to Women in Business, Women In Sport and Women on the Track”.
Nicole recently travelled to Le Castellet, France to test drive the Porsche GT3 with the Sean Edwards Foundation. At just 21 years of age, Nicole is the only woman competing in the Irish Touring Car Championship in her 250bhp Honda Integra.
Race Car driving runs in Nicole’s family, which is where she picked up her love of racing from her dad Owain, who was also a rally driver. Nicole is an inspiration to young women everywhere, showing them that you really can be whatever you want, once you put your mind to it.
