Doriane Pin, one of the four finalists in the inaugural FIA Girls on Track – Rising Stars programme, has become the second driver integrated into the Iron Dames stable.
After reaching the final stage of the first edition of FIA Girls on Track – Rising Stars hosted at the Ferrari Driver Academy, young French racer Doriane Pin continues to impress and has secured a drive in the 2021 Michelin Le Mans Cup as part of Deborah Mayer’s innovative Iron Dames programme.
Such was the impression Doriane made on the experts at the Ferrari Driver Academy she, along with the two other finalists who finished runners-up to Maya Weug, were awarded a test session in a Ferrari 488 Challenge EVO. Doriane, who is the first to have undertaken the test, had the opportunity to shine once again a month ago at the Mugello circuit and the 17-year old demonstrated yet more potential with her commitment and speed.
After this successful debut with Iron Lynx, the team invited her to the Circuit Paul Ricard for a three-day Ferrari 488 GT Evo test. The outfit, supported by Deborah Mayer and her Iron Dames women in motor sport project, has now offered Doriane a season in the 2021 Michelin Le Mans Cup alongside experienced Italian racer, Manuela Gostner, a member of the current Iron Dames line-up competing in this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship.
“We are extremely happy that Doriane is joining us,” comments Deborah Mayer, project leader, Iron Dames. “In Iron Lynx, Doriane will be surrounded by a group of amazing and very experienced drivers which is sure to help her integrate and develop within the GT environment. We look forward to seeing Doriane and Manuela racing together this year. We are sure that together, they will do a great job,” she concluded.
