Ground-breaking Northamptonshire disabled female racing driver shares her life story on new podcast
A Northamptonshire-based disabled female racing driver has had her life story told on a new podcast about inspirational women from Lamborghini.
Nathalie McGloin and seven others are featured in Automobili Lamborghini’s FAB (Female Advisory Board) Talks series about their transformational lives.
All eight women are part of the FAB, established in 2018 to create a dialogue between women about overcoming personal challenges and changing the status quo.
Katia Bassi, chief marketing and communication officer, said: ‘‘Lamborghini’s approach to challenge and change is reflected in the aims of the FAB and in the stories of our members, and we’re proud to tell some of those narratives through our podcast project.’’
In 2015, Nathalie was the first woman with a spinal injury to be granted a racing licence in the UK and became the first female disabled rally driver four years later.
She was appointed president of the newly formed FIA Disability and Accessibility Commission in 2017.
Nathalie talks about the car crash aged 16 which put her in a wheelchair through becoming a racing driver and inspiring girls to get into motorsport on FAB Talks.
Providing an inspirational insight into each woman’s personal journey, the podcasts provide support and advice for others who may find themselves in parallel situations.
Other women to be featured include Natalia Aranovich, a prominent LA lawyer from Brazil, Denise Yeung, a businesswoman and successful racing driver in Hong Kong and Zena Kaddour, creative director of an Australian jewellery brand.
The podcasts are free to download at future.fab.lamborghini and from all main podcast publishers.
