Women at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill
As one of the most grueling endurance races in the world, 25 Hours of Thunderhill is not for the faint of heart. Yet, 2018 was a year for the history books as more female drivers entered the race than ever before! Three teams of all-female drivers entered the race, two of which entered as part of the female collective of motorsports racers called Shift Up Now.
What Is Shift Up Now?
Shift Up Now is a collective of female racers who use motorsports to inspire confidence and courage in women of all ages. Lynn Kehoe, the founder and CEO of Shift Up Now, hosts a variety of motivational talks and leadership programs for young girls. Kehoe’s aim is to get girls interested in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) and to provide hands-on leadership training through driving. As a result, she has created a team of incredible motorsports racers!
2019 25 Hours of Thunderhill
After a successful year at this iconic race in 2018, Kehoe decided to enter again in 2019. This year, Shift Up Now is partnering with HQ Autosport Racing to form a co-ed team of three women and two men. The team will drive in the very competitive E2 class; HQ Autosports is the defending 2018 NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill Champions in this class. As such, the team expects to demonstrate the best of what motorsports can be when like-minded men and women work together for a common goal.
