Women Fitness joins the fast racer for an interesting conversation!
You won your first Indy Lights race at Nashville Superspeedway in 2008, becoming the first woman to win a race in the Indy Lights series and soon after became the first woman to win a race car event at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa in 2009. Tell us what attracted you towards auto racing as a career, if you were to sum up in a few words?
ANA BEATRIZ FIGUEIREDO:
Well, those two races I won in Indy Lights were definitely one of the most important of my career however I have more than 30 wins in Brazil before that in Karting and Formula Renault Series. Since I was a little girl I was attracted by cars and racing. My dad realized it and took me to a go kart race when I was 5. I loved it and kept bugging him until he finally took me to a karting school in Interlagos – São Paulo when I turned 7.
