Reema Juffali, the Saudi racer starting her own team: 'It's about sharing – it's not my story anymore'

She broke new ground as Saudi Arabia’s first female racing driver, but that was never going to be enough for ambitious Reema Juffali. Following a tough apprenticeship on the UK’s single-seater nursery slopes, the 30-year-old switched to GT racing for this year – but as of this coming weekend, not simply as a driver alone. Juffali is pressing on to chase her dream of one day making it to Le Mans, and on her own terms, by launching her own race team. The pioneering spirit is compelling, especially as she appears to be surrounding herself with exactly the right people she’ll need to achieve her considerable goals.

'It Wasn't Even a Dream': Reema Juffali on Being Saudi Arabia's First Pro Woman Driver

Banned from driving in her home country for most of her life, Reema Juffali is now making up lost time. It's Formula 1's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix this weekend. That's a big enough deal in the west, but a considerably bigger deal in Saudi Arabia, where for most of the past 40 years an event like this wasn't even conceivable. Motorsport wasn't outlawed per se, but no FIA-sanctioned event could have taken place while women were banned from driving and crowded, mixed-sex attendance events were an absolute no. That's the world Reema Juffali grew up in—but now she's been competing internationally for four years as the Kingdom's first professional woman racing driver. I spoke to her this year about her own journey and the rise of motorsport in Saudi Arabia at what appears to be a critical moment for the nascent scene there.

Reema Juffali is Saudi Arabia's racing pioneer — despite female driving ban

What counts in motor racing? Just the taking part? No one really buys into that. Winning. That’s what matters when you get down to the grain. Except in some cases defining winners in sport simply by results is blinkered and means remarkable stories can be overlooked. For some, just getting on to a grid is a victory in itself.
