A new day in motorsport
If anyone breaks the norm, it is Aurora Straus, the only professional female sports car racer in North America. In order to participate in the Pirelli World Challenge series, she even graduated from Harvard for a year in 2018. She is not satisfied with challenging the limits and stereotypes in fast driving. The rest of her time is spent on an American musician, passionate sportsman and precocious role model, and has greater dreams for the future.
‘What I’m slowly falling in love with is my status as a woman in the motorsport world. It’s not that I was treated differently on the track, but I think I am in a unique position because I can reach a whole generation of young girls. ’
Aurora drove for the first time at the age of 13, without any experience. Her enthusiasm for motorsports grew rapidly, and she started wheel-to-wheel racing at the age of 15. In 2017, she made her debut in the professional competition of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge and was finally named the rookie in her class with the best performance of the year. She is currently participating in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.
Aurora has been a partner of the brand since 2018, wearing a white ceramic RM 07-01, jasper and diamond dial.
‘As long as I wear a Richard Mille replica watch, I will know that whatever I do, I’m fine. It has participated in every game of mine and worn on my wrist every time I train, but so far, it has not even been affected in any way. “
Aurora named itself in different fields. Judging from her ambitions for the future, this name may deserve our attention.
“I grew up in a stereotyped male-dominated sport, in this industry I am’other’ rather than’given’. I have learned a lot from this. I feel that I am on track. I am ready. It’s easy to enter the government and have expertise in many different fields. At that time, I will apply what I have learned outside the political world to the political field, and we will see what happens.’
She founded her non-profit organization “Girls with Driving Forces” to help raise awareness and excitement about male-dominated career paths among young girls. She can devote more time, money and energy to creating plans that will help young women want to participate in these career paths, the better. discount women watches
