We often fear being tailed by women drivers when on road and we all are aware of the general perception in India about abilities of the fairer sex on tarmac. Rubbishing all the babble, here is a group of 8 women that have proved their mettle, not just on the road, but on the racetrack as well; not just with any other car, but the raging bull, Lamborghini.
Italian sports car maker, Lamoghini, recently conducted a Super Sports Car drive in the capital city of India with all women participants. Hogging the limelight was Sheetal Dugar, the first lady to have owned a Lamborghini in India.
The drive was flagged off at the Shangri-La hotel, New Delhi from where it headed to the Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida spanning 45 kms. In between, Lamborghini showcased the practical side of its sports cars while the ladies were taught the finer aspects on driving on the track by Armaan Ebrahim, the Indian contender for Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.

”It was a privilege to be a part of the first ever super sports car drive for women conducted by Lamborghini in India. It was the first time, I have ever driven in an all-women drive. Events like this should motivate women in our country to follow their passion for driving super sports cars. It feels I am exploring new horizons and crossing more boundaries every time that I am behind my steering wheel.”
Andrea Baldi, General Manager Automobili Lamborghini Asia Pacific
“With the number of women car buyers increasing every year globally, we are glad that Lamborghini India tookthis initiative to provide a platform for women to drive super sports cars in India.”
Mr. Sharad Agarwal, Head of Lamborghini India
“We intend to serve as a catalyst for the passion of driving amongst women. Lamborghini India will take this initiative forward across other cities in the country.”
