International Women's Day
Rally Guanajuato Corona 2014 celebrates International Women’s Day
To celebrate International Women’s Day on Saturday 8 March, Rally Guanajuato Corona organisers teamed up with the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission and OMDAI-FIA Mexico officials to honour women’s achievements and involvement in this year’s third round of the FIA World Rally Championship.
Volunteers joined female event, team and FIA officials at a photo call at Rally Campus in the presence of Michèle Mouton, President of the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission and Jenny Bertin, President of the OMDAI-FIA Mexico Women in Motorsport Commission. March 8th was designated as International Women’s Day by the United Nations in 1975.
“I was overwhelmed by the number of women who have been working behind the scenes to make this event in Mexico such a success,” said Michèle Mouton. “Our mission at the FIA is to see more women actively involved in motor sport.”
