Sophie Fabron (born 15th June, 1964 in Annecy, France) is a French former racing driver and team owner.

Early Career

Fabron first came to prominence in the 1988 International Formula 3000 series, driving for the French GBDA Motorsport team alongside Éric Bernard. Fabron finished the season in 14th place overall - her best finish being an impressive fourth at the Le Mans-Bugatti circuit.

Fabron's decent season in Formula 3000 caught the attention of the works Diac Voeckler Renault outfit, who saw fit to sign her in a two-year deal to race for them in the World Touring Car Masters alongside former Formula One pilot Jacques Laffite, World Rally star Jean Ragnotti and touring car specialist Jean-Pierre Malcher. Renault was largely outpaced in 1989, but Fabron did take an unexpected third place finish in the Sprint Race at Monza. Fabron finished her debut season in 17th place in Class C - the best of the Renault drivers.

Formula One

1991: Oreca

Fabron signed for the Footwork Oreca team in 1991, making her debut alongside veteran driver Andrea de Cesaris. Her results were very unremarkable - her best being tenth at the Pacific Grand Prix.
