Lindsay Rice - #HaveYouMetHerYet?

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

Lindsay Rice is a Canadian race car driver. She is also an entrepreneur, brand ambassador, and philanthropist.

What is your story? What do you do and how did you get to where you are today in your career?

I am a 27 year old race car driver from Mississauga, Ontario in Canada. I have wanted to race cars since I was a little girl, and I finally made it happen at 23 years of age. It was a long journey to get into racing for me as I wasn’t sure how to do it as a first-generation racer in my family. One day I made a decision to start volunteering with a race organization, and I remember telling everyone – ‘one day, I will be in one of these cars’. In 2016, I made it happen. I gathered some sponsors, I found an amazing team and coach, and I haven’t looked back since.

Do you have a professional mentor or someone who inspires your career?

I have many mentors in racing – first of all there is Marco Cirone, he is a 5-time Platinum Masters Champion with the Porsche GT3 Cup racing series here in Canada. He has been my coach and partner since the beginning. I have him to thank a lot for helping me get into racing and following in his very reputable footsteps. Another would be female racer Katherine Legge. She races in GT racing in the United States (but originally from the UK), and she is just reeeeally awesome. I enjoy her abilities to fight for podiums and win amongst men in her field. She doesn’t put a huge emphasis on her being female, she simply goes out there and drives – and drives very well. #weraceasequals

What is one piece of valuable advice you would give someone who wants to get into your field?

My piece of advice is to always, always, aaalways put the work in. It is so important to put your head down and really work for what you want in life. Racing is no different than any other job in this perspe
