Most of you might not know about this, but i’m a huge cars lover and i also used to be a racer many years ago. So, i really thought i should write a post about the first female racer ever!
Genevra Delphine Mudge is said to be the first female racing driver in the world, having started her career back in 1899.
She was a talented driver and she chose a Waverly Electric as her first car in New York City! A year later she took up gasoline powered racing in her own Locomobile and was the first woman in US history to be issued with a drivers license!
Of course there are many talented female racers worth mentioning ❤️such as Elfrieda Mais, Sara Christian and Arlene Hiss, but Genevra will always be the first one to ever try such thing!
Do you have any favorite racers though? Or even favorite cars? If so, leave a comment! 🏎
I should definitely write a post about vintage cars as well. Also, let me tell you that my instagram page is now changed to @avintageathenian!
If you haven’t, go check it out! Thank you so much for reading darlings! I really hope you liked it! I’ll see you all on my next post!
