The Iron Dames Team is thrilled to announce their return to one of the most famous and competitive endurance racing series in the world, the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) Sportscar Championship for 2024.
Since its inaugural season in 2014, the IMSA Endurance Cup has taken teams to the most iconic tracks in US motorsport, with next year’s series again including Daytona and Sebring in Florida, Watkins Glen, New York before finishing at Raceway Road Atlanta, Georgia. For 2024, the penultimate round will take place at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indiana, adding to the excitement.
The Iron Dames joined the IMSA grid for the first time in 2023 and can look back on a highly promising debut season, demonstrating that they hold a rightful place in one of motorsport’s most highly contested championships.
They will kick off the season in January at the legendary Daytona 24 Hours, building on their resounding end-of-year achievements with the first win for an all-women’s team in the FIA World Endurance Championship in Bahrain and second place in the overall championship. The pink squad will be keen to reconnect with their American fans and continue to demonstrate that gender knows no bounds and boundaries when it comes to competitive racing.
For the 24 Hours of Daytona, in the GT Daytona class, the Lamborghini GT3 EVO 2 #83 will be driven by Sarah Bovy, Rahel Frey and Michelle Gatting, with the fourth driver to be confirmed.
The names of the drivers who will make up the exceptional all-female lineup for the remainder of the 2024 IMSA Sportscar Championship will be revealed in the coming weeks.
We are very pleased to announce our return to IMSA Endurance Cup and I would like to thank John Doonan and his team for their very warm welcome to this major championship. The Iron Dames have consistently shown remarkable passion, determination, and never give up attitude in the competitive world of endurance racing. We’ve recently finished our first season in IMSA and it’s a pleasure to be back in 2024. We can’t wait to come back to the heartfelt atmosphere and good adrenaline of the American circuits and the enthusiastic support from the American crowds for the Iron Dames. We are looking forward to opening the 2024 season at Daytona.Deborah Mayer, Iron Dames Project Founder
