| Laleh Seddigh|| Race car driver|
Laleh Seddigh (born 1977 in Tehran) is an Iranian female racing driver.
Seddigh started driving at the age of 13, taught by her father. She passed her driving test at 18.
Seddigh had to get special permission from a local ayatollah in order to compete against men. Permission was givin since driving is not deemed a contact sport, and on the condition that Seddigh would confirm to dress-codes.
Seddigh's story is featured in a BBC TV documentary called Girl Racer, transmitted in 2008.
