Susie Wolff has lost a court appeal to have her ban on driving overturned. She was recorded doing 35mph in a 30mph zone in June 2015 in the village of East Hanney, Oxfordshire.
The 34-year-old former Williams test driver already had nine points on her driving licence for speeding offences, and claimed that the ban would affect her charity work.
"I'm not a girl racer, I save my speed for the race track. "It is a hugely embarrassing situation to find myself in, I'm a professional driver and to be caught speeding and to have my licence taken away for speeding, it would have an effect on my reputation."
Wolff also claims she is a role model in her programme 'Dare to be Different' which encourages females to get involved and feel comfortable "in male-dominated environments and professions".
But Recorder Sarah Campbell dismissed her appeal and told her: "It may well be an embarrassment as far as her position is concerned, but it may be a salutary lesson to those aware of the facts."
