Heinricher Racing w/ Meyer Shank Racing Making History

Thanks But No Thanks

The ACO and FIA World Endurance Championship have declined the Le Mans entry originally slated to run in the LMP2 class. The team was to have collaborated with Micheal Shank Racing, and Algrave’s all-female team given previous experience in the 24 Hour event.

“I thought we put together a good package that has been making a positive and successful impact so far here in the States…”, said team owner Jackie Heinricher, “we thought it would be successful at Le Mans. With our team and partners and drivers, we felt we could have done a very good job. I’m also disappointed that Katherine, who is one of, if not the fastest woman racing in the world, deserved a shot, not to mention the great people at Meyer Shank Racing.”

Ah yes, but then, only the Europeans truly understand ‘female empowerment’ – right?

Too Bad By Half
