More and more, Muslims have been the subject of stereotyping, stigmatising, racism and discrimination. Not only by random citizens in public places, but also by politicians, media, security officials and other groups.

According to other road users, a hijab or a niqab would be a danger in traffic. The women would not be able to hear and see properly. And because their identities are not visible, they are considered a terrorist. A driving license stands for more than just taking a driving test, it also plays emotionally a role for most covered women in different cultures and religions.

Speed Queen symbolises the most elementary human right: freedom. By considering the religious clothing as a piece of equipment, a comparison is made between a professional race car driver and the Muslim woman.
