Strength, passion, courage & boldness describes Portuguese race car driver, Carina Lima. Born in Angola in 1979, she developed a passion for cars and speed at a very young age. The audacity to compete in a sport reserved for mostly men with an edgy casual fashion sense is what makes Carina a Michael Allenova Woman!
Carina started racing in 2012 with a small participation in the GT championship in Portugal driving the Ferrari 430. She entered her first race in 2014 in the Lamborghini Supertrofeo but due to unforeseen problems did not complete the season. Her participation in the Lamborghini Supertrofeo in 2015 proved to be a success for her and her co-racer. Both won the category Gallardo AM and obtained the title of European champions.
No stranger to high-performance cars, Carina purchased the very first Koenigsegg One: 1, chassis number 106, which was the original pro type used to develop the car valued at $6,000,000. Her portfolio of cars includes Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Lamborghini.
Carina’s story is proof that it’s never too late to fulfill a dream. Get to know her a little more through these questions:
How do you feel about fashion and style?
I love fashion but I don't follow it as my daily bases. I am very simple many times and can be also dressed with style. But normal I am more casual.
Do you feel like you influence fashion and style?
I think we can please some and others no, so it's all a matter of who and how and where :)
What are 3 of your best accomplishments?
I can only think about one... not accomplishment but the best thing in life, being a mother!! All the rest are daily fights, every day we have new challenges and we must fight for our dreams always.
