BORN TO RACE – AGAINST THE ODDS
THIS IS ALLISON
Allison Raphael is the sole teenage female professional sports car racer in North America. While starting her career in go-karting, Allison Raphael was too young to notice the effects of being the only female driver. As she progressed, she began to realize she would be the only female at the track. Although surrounded by positive and encouraging male drivers, it was still intimidating being a teenage girl in a sport historically dominated by adult men. Raphael wants to set an example that no matter the adversity, women can persevere.

“There are various times during a race when your mind tells you to hit the brakes, but you must go full throttle.”
