Yes, I know. And there are many of them. And I also know only one man who is good, no, just a great car driver. The only one with whom to ride is not scary and safe. Unlike girls, because everyone I know drives calmly, confidently and accurately.
In general, a stupid stereotype that a woman driving is like a monkey with a grenade, terribly enrages. I have not seen a single woman who would race 200 km per hour on some trough for the sake of showing off in front of the other sex.

I want to note that the question makes sense only in Russian conditions. In the United States and Europe, the gender composition of drivers is balanced: everyone studies at 16-17 years old, by the age of 18 parents buy troughs for their children (here you can find a car in quite decent condition for $ 1000-1500) so that they go to college, and everything is fine and quite the same.
So the question about the monkey with the grenade is closed as soon as the population has the money to have more than one driver in the family.
And yes, I drive without any 'but' a car without prayers, stupid and unpredictable maneuvers and lined mirrors in parking lots
yes. and this is "yes" without the expected "yes, but ..", "yes, under certain conditions", and other crap. driving for almost 20 years, not a pro, a traveler. when I bought my first car, I drove around Moscow time and the region, with a minimal break for sleep, drove all my friends and me, what is called, "perlo", well, all newcomers are familiar, I think?
and so: in in my life, at the moment, there are three women who drive cars better than me. and that's cool! as a contrast - I saw today ... a woman not just crossing herself before leaving the parking lot, but coming out and "making a sign" not only her basin, and adjacent fences, but also the asphalt in front of the car ...
This is a rather provocative question for any rider, since each of us considers ourselves to be the fastest. Always unfulfilled ambition begins to bubble up inside when asked such things, however, there is something to discuss here.
Are there women who own a car better than me? Unfortunately, it was not possible to compare with those on the track in equal conditions (in the same racing series on equal cars), so I cannot directly answer this question. But fast women in races are found, though very rarely. Take, for example, the "iron German" Utah Kleinschmidt, who in 2001 won the famous and incredibly difficult Paris-Dakar rally marathon. A great many top-class professional pilots who are known all over the world fought against her. However, it was she who was able to become the best, ascending one step higher than them on the podium. Or Susie Wolff is a test driver for the Williams Martini Racing team, which is capable of setting Formula 1 lap times as fast as the team's main drivers Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas. Well, I know Sabina Schmitz, who starred in the well-known Top Gear TV show, because I played with her in the same VLN championship (it only takes place on the legendary Nürburgring North Loop), albeit in a less powerful class. I saw with my own eyes how she courageously and courageously drives, aggressively works with traffic and wins races.
I take off my hat in front of such ladies, however, there are big drawbacks. Like any other male sport, car racing kills women’s attractiveness and sexuality. To fight ferocious men on an equal footing, you must, unfortunately, become the same. All great female racers (or, as they should be called, pilots) are not objects of desire for men, on the track it is useless. However, on the track such people are perceived as equals, so any rudeness in the fight for a place can be received in response to rudeness and spend the rest of the race hanging in the fence. But, again, such women can be counted on one hand, for the most part it is more like shocking, some kind of attempt to attract attention, and not a sincere love and passion for racing on their part.
