From Formula 1 to Nascar, the world of motorsport has long been dominated by men. Enter Team Valkyrie– an all-female racing team that’s paving its way into the future of the sport. Since joining OnlyFans, Team Valkyrie hopes to inspire more women racers.
We caught up with the three UK-based members of Team Valkyrie– Shannon Tobin, Amy Riley, and Magdalena King and spoke to them about their experiences as drivers, the 2023 racing season, and their decision to join OnlyFans.
Why did Team Valkyrie decide to come to OnlyFans?
OnlyFans also gives its creators full control over their accounts, empowering them and allowing for greater creative freedom. It’s not driven by advertisements, or by what other people decide is popular, but instead by creators and subscribers.
As an all-female team, we closely align with OnlyFans' empowering stance, and stand for taking back control of your own narrative.
Will being on OF draw more women to motorsport?
There is a concept that “if you can see it, then you can be it." It's really important to see women out there succeeding in motorsport at all levels. It gives emerging talent something to aim for. If we can do it, so can they.
Our hope is that getting that message out to as many people as possible will increase the visibility of women in motorsport and help encourage others to pursue their dreams.
How does it feel to collab with OF for 2023?
It means a lot that we are going racing with the support of a company like OnlyFans. It helps to legitimize women as valid, sponsor-able racing drivers who deserve recognition.
People don’t realize that there is more to OnlyFans than you first think. There are now sports people from multiple disciplines using the platform to engage and interact with their fans more readily than other social media platforms.
Ten years from now, we’d like to see a more even split of men and women working in motorsport, in all roles: engineers, pit crew, team managers, and drivers.
Any advice to give aspiring women racers?
Pursue your dreams and don’t let anyone tell you that there’s no place for women in the sport. We are just as capable as anyone else. When your helmet is on and your visor is down, no one knows whether you’re a girl or a boy.
Just go out there, don’t give up, and keep going.
