LORINA McLaughlin, one of the UK’s most successful female racing drivers, will be roaring into Bournemouth for the Motors By The Sea Festival this weekend.

Lorina will be displaying the ex-Michael Schumacher 1992 Benetton B192 Formula 1 car at Boscombe Precinct on Sunday.

Driving Formula 1 cars both in the UK and Europe, Lorina is a regular fixture at the big historic motorsport events including the hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed where she has won the ladies award no less than seven times so far.

She is also the only female to drive so many different F1 cars throughout her career including James Hunt’s Marlboro McLaren M23, Denny Hulme’s Yardley McLaren M19, Arrows A9 Turbo, Arrows A10 Turbo, Toleman Benetton, Osella FA1D and of course her own current car the ex-Michael Schumacher Benetton B192.

During her career, she has won numerous races, held lap records and has been lucky enough to have raced twice at the historic Monaco race in her ex-James Hunt Marlboro McLaren.

Currently, Lorina takes part in the UK and in Europe mainly driving in F1 Demonstration events in the Benetton which she organizes with her husband David for THE FORCE – The Historic European Formula One Race Car Entrants.

Motors By The Sea co-founder David Jones said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Lorina. She will be exhibiting the stunning Benetton Formula 1 Car on Sunday in Boscombe Precinct and we are sure it will be a huge draw for the crowds.”

The inaugural Motors By The Sea Festival is coming to town from September 14-16 and promises to deliver a fantastic spectacle for car enthusiasts, fun for the local community and families and to promote Boscombe’s lively and bohemian atmosphere.

The free festival brings an eclectic mix of events, workshops, exhibitors and classic and special vehicles to town.
