So there are three awesome drivers at the IMSA racing that we want to point out; Katherine Legge, Aurora Straus and Christina Nielsen.

 Christina Nielsen is a second generation auto racing driver after her legendary father Lars-Erik Nielsen, who raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 2000s.

She is the first female driver to win a WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series title in 2016 with the Scuderia Corsa team. She riders an awesome Ferrari 488 GT3!

Christina has also been testing with Ferrari for years! We love the RED colour of Ferrari on her!

The second is Aurora Straus, which we literally can’t wait to see. Now she drives an Porche! Aurora is our favorite driver of the year 😀 😀 😀 !

Aurora started professional driving at the age of 13! She is also a musician, composer and a student in high school! But she will graduate from high school in 2017 to Harvard University’s class of 2021. She plans to pursue degrees in both mechanical engineering and English literature.

Imagine competing as an IMSA woman driver at that age!

Aurora made her first appearance at the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, as the youngest driver. At Watkins Glen, she drove the  number 18 RS1 Porsche from 24th to 9th place, ultimately finishing 8th with co-driver Justin Piscitell.

In 2017, Aurora is competing in the #18 ModSpace RS1 Porsche for the entire season with co-driver Connor Bloum.
