"108 Women challenge" team: Auresa

Our team consists of 4 girls - Rūta, Sandra, Vaida, and Laura. Rūta is the driver, Sandra is good with numbers so she is the co-driver. Laura and Vaida – eagle eyes and fast legs – doing all the tasks.

Rūta and Sandra were brought together by the same hobby – car slalom. Rūta and Vaida are cousins and Sandra and Laura are friends. That is all how they got to meet. The team name “Auresa“. It is the official “Toyota“ representative office in Panevėžys name. I guess no wonder which car are we driving. However, we do not know which “Toyota” we are racing.

“Aurum 1006 km race“ – safe driving school

Less than one month and a half are left until the 20th race in Palanga “Aurum 1006 km race“. This year’s race motto – safe driving.

Darius Jonušis states that on the contrary, when the race is high quality and with lots of supervisors, technicians – that sets the example for everyone that safety comes first.
