YVETTE: Lead Foot and Warm Heart
I believe women have the ability to be powerful whilst also nurturing in a way that offers a unique way to lead. Yvette embodies this in a way that is infectious. As the co-founder of Track Day Club, Yvette has created a club that is like her, warm and inviting whilst offering the need to drive very fast... like really fast!
TRACK DAY CLUB: Wakefield Park, Sydney
Founded in 2012, Track Day Club offers the chance for any drivers to test their wheels, set personal bests and let out their need for speed in what is a family friendly, safe and super fun event. IVV got the chance to participate last winter at Wakefield park and was blown away literally (as it was seriously windy) and figuratively by the approachable, well organized family run event.
THE MOBILE CLINIC: A Pink Jeep
Midwives for Haiti are not only supporting women in the earthquake devastated country but maintaining natural delivery and the wonderful care that midwives offer. Rotary International donated a fully equipped medical Jeep (in pink) as a mobile clinic to allow MFH to reach more remote locations for pre and post natal care. Check out this great short film about this important service.
It's Not Rational
While it is totally rational to think I could have bought a reliable late 90’s holden for the same price and it would have air conditioning, electrics working, be fuel efficient etc etc… the real rational question to ask is… does it make me smile? Meet my new drive (and love) 1971 Mercedes-Benz 230.
SPEED SISTERS: Palestine
An example of grit, determination, strength and passion, these women are the Speed Sisters. Based in (and a product of) Palestine the Speed Sisters have managed to become the first all female racing group in the Arab world, smashing stereotypes whilst they're at it. Check out the trailer to their upcoming film about the inspired story of Noor, Marah, Mona, Maysoon and Betty.
