Reema Juffali is the first female pilot in Saudi Arabia

Cars News

Her name is Reema Juffali, she is 27, she drives racing cars and – like many other motorsport fans – dreams of one day racing the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The news alone deserves attention because there are still not many women who sit behind the wheel of a racing car. But Reema’s case is really relevant, because she is the very first ‘pilotess’ of Saudi Arabia since, in June 2018, by the will of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, women were granted permission to drive the Automobiles.

And to reiterate the exceptional nature of this event, Reema was called upon to pilot a zero-impact Jaguar i-Pace in an eTrophy race in Diriyah, near the capital Riyadh.
