First to compete

The July 22 1926 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained a photograph of (supposedly) the first woman ever to compete against men in an auto race.

I couldn’t find anything about Mme. Hitier in any searches (it doesn’t help that her name is very similar to “Hitler”). And this list of female Spanish drivers doesn’t include her. Either this photograph got her name wrong, or she is lost to history.
