10 Women Who Know More About Cars Than You

Jutta Kleinschmidt

Known For: Only woman to win the Paris-Dakar Rally

In '01 Jutta became both the first woman AND the first German to win the Dakar Rally. The win came after seven years of rally driving, starting with a race in Dubai back in '94. A ridiculous story actually came out of that race. As Kleinschmidt finished that rally, she also passed the local driving hero, who was a man. The Sheik that organized the race blasted her for doing such a thing on camera, claiming that all the women in Dubai would now want to drive and cause chaos in the streets. How's that for starting a movement?
