In a guy-dominated sport like car racing, finding a woman who can do it just as good (if not better) is rare. But it is also in these rare occasions where we find girls who deserve to be called badass. You’ve seen all the Fast and the Furious films, watched Formula 1 with your bros, and stalked Matteo Guidicelli, Marlon Stöckinger and Michelle Bumgarner, but we bet you haven’t seen anything like these women yet. Looking hot in a race suit (sometimes with a red lippie to match), meet the five Filipinas who like taking the driver’s seat to satisfy their need for speed.
We're sure you've seen Rhian's racing posts on IG and thought, wow, what a cool chick she is. But what you didn’t know was that she actually only learned how to drive a stick two years ago for the Vios Cup. We guess she’s already fallen in love with what started out as a hobby, because until now, she can be seen competing in the tracks.
These days, if Jasmine’s not at school, work, or at home, you can find her in the tracks. She may still be a freshie at the sport but we see passion in her eyes. If she keeps this up, she'll definitely go places. Can't deny that she looks ridic good in the jumpsuit, too.
Joyce takes racing seriously. And by that, we mean she works out and eats right to prepare for races. All of which lead to her winning the best new driver award and beating the guys such as Derek Ramsey and Fabio Ide in the process.
Kylie Padilla, with her fair skin and red lips, gets her hands dirty with the grit and grime of racing. She’s had her fair share of minor crashes but knows that it’s all part of the game.
Did you know that Phoemela likes living in the fast lane? Truth is, out of all the girls in this list, she has the most experience and has been wearing the helmet the longest. These days the fight for the pole position always boil down to this hottie and Sam YG.
Note to the boys: They can take you on, anytime, any day.
