Rebecca Palson was the only female driver in the Barcelona Big Bang and was driving a Nissan GTR
The only female driver – 33-year-old Engineer Rebecca Palson (on the right) – described having the chance to race at the Formula One circuit as a ‘one-off’ opportunity and the set-up as ‘spectacular’ . She took to the tracks in a Nissan GTR with her father as co-pilot. Here, she is pictured alongside Lucas Fox social media consultant Dot Lung.
“Driving high performance cars has been in the family for a long time” Rebecca explains “I was an only child so it seemed logical that I carried on the tradition, despite being female. My dad taught me everything I know! Montmeló is an iconic track but, for me, driving is all about the physics and the technical side rather than emotional.”
