Iran: Female race car driver barred from competition

http://www1.adnkronos.com/AKI/English/Sport/?id=1.0.1630367850


Tehran, 4 Dec. (AKI) - Iran's top female race car driver, Laleh Seddigh, has been banned from competing in Iran for one year by the Iranian racing federation.

Seddigh, who is known as the "Schumacher of the East" after the German Formula One champion, was accused of having tampered with her car's engine during her last race in Iran.

"It's a conspiracy," said Seddigh in an interview with Adnkronos International (AKI). "I did not commit any irregularities. They simply want to exclude me from racing because I'm a woman," she said.

"I changed the car before the start of the race because it was faulty and gave the federation lots of notice," Seddigh told AKI.

1. I have this theory that Iran is exactly like the USA and that 7 presidents have lied about it

 

Other than the hijab, she could be Danica Patrick.
