When I first started racerchicks.com thirteen years ago I never thought it would have opened so many doors for me – I have met some great people and have gone on some great adventures as an automotive journalist.  Since then I have watched more and more women get involved in racing and in the automotive industry and I’m happy to see more acceptance.  While I would like to say racerchicks.com had a small part of it – it really is the many women of all ages that followed their dreams…..and for the many that respected them for it.   A car doesn’t care  the gender of its driver — no olilNIKA.jogne else should.

In thirteen years so many things have changed not just on a business level but on a personal level.  I have a wonderful and supportive husband and my own little racerchick now.  Only thirteen more years until she can have a drivers license – I will get back to you about that fear some other time.

Thanks to the original crew that helped me with the website so many years ago Doug and Jeff – to the many racerchicks that wrote me proudly announcing that they are “racerchicks” too….my friends and family and to my new website design master – ( a different)  Jeff . Let this site be a venue to discuss, proclaim, rant and debate all things wonderful from a car/race girl’s point of view.

Here’s to another lucky thirteen
