Frey back in the FIA WEC

Rahel Frey will return to the FIA World Endurance Championship 2024.

The Swiss racer will be racing for Iron Dames Lamborghini #85 together with Michelle Gatting and Sarah Bovy at 5 of the remaining 7 rounds.

The change is down to Doriane Pin having another single seater programme added to her 2024 schedule. The original plan was for Pin to do FIA WEC for the full 2024 season, while Frey would do the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (Endurance rounds only) and the European Le Mans Series together with Gatting and Bovy.

Frey was one of the “original” Iron Dames from 2019, when it all started in the European Le Mans Series, together with Gatting. Bovy joined them in the middle of 2021, and has improved astronomically since then, and has become of the the best Bronze drivers in the world. Bovy has alongside Gatting been Polesitter, and won in both the European Le Mans Series and the FIA World Endurance Championship. Pin was part of the winning crew at the ELMS victory in Portimao 2022, while Frey was in the car alongside the Dane and the Belgian at the FIA WEC round in Bahrain 2023, when they claimed a historic final ever GTE win.

Irom Dames participates with a Lamborghini Huracan LMGT3 Evo2 in both FIA WEC and IMSA, while they are racing a Porsche 911 GT3.R LMGT3 in the ELMS 2024.

Doriane Pin participates in both F1 Academy and Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine in 2024, and has a connection to Mercedes F1 Team. Pin will race at the FIA WEC round this weekend at Imola, and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this June, but will be skipping Spa Francorchamps, Interlagos, COTA, Fuji, and Bahrain.
