Video: Meet the Ferrari Challenge's female racers

Two female drivers are in action at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali at Mugello this weekend - and they're sisters. We meet Manuela and Corinna Gostner in an exclusive video.

Manuela and Corinna compete together in the Coppa Shell division of the Ferrari Challenge Europe series, where they ran 12th and 21st in the points respectively prior to the Mugello weekend.

"I was here in April and it’s my second time here in Mugello," said Corinna. "It’s my first complete year with my own car. I entered some races last year with my father’s car.

"This year I scored two 10th places. I’m satisfied but let’s see what happens next year."

Corinna and Manuela aren't the only Gostners in action at Mugello - David Gostner is one of the leading lights of the Trofeo Pirelli class, while the sisters' father Thomas Gostner is a fellow Coppa Shell competitor.

"My brother [David] is really fast and fortunately he’s not competing with us in the Coppa Shell, but I still have lots of fun with my father [Thomas] and my sister," said Manuela.

"Last time around in Valencia I ended up fifth, but the most important thing is that I was in front of my dad for the first time. It was really exciting."
