The FIA and its Women in Motorsport Commission are pleased to announce the third edition of the FIA Girls on Track – Rising Stars project, with the opening of registrations.

The programme aims to detect and nurture the female racing talent of the future of the best 12-16 years old female drivers from around the world. It offers them a unique opportunity to forge a professional career in motor sport. The first two editions brought out three promising young female drivers, Maya Weug (17 years old, Dutch), Laura Camps Torres (17 years old, Spanish), Maria Germano Neto (12 years old, Portuguese). Now, under the wing of the Ferrari Driver Academy, they progress in the best conditions towards the top level.

Following a worldwide detection of all the most promising young talents between 12 and 16 years old, a pool of 16 drivers will be selected to attend two training camps that will fast-forward their careers in both junior (12-14) and senior (14-16) categories.

The senior winner could be awarded a one-year contract to join the Ferrari Driver Academy programme and to compete in 2023 in the FIA Formula 4 Italian Championship with the Iron Dames' support. Other finalists will become a part of a “talent capsule” providing them with racing career support and various driving development opportunities.

The best karting driver will have the opportunity to participate in an International Karting season 2023 financed by the Ferrari Driver Academy.

The registrations will open from 30th May to 12th June 2022.

Applicants must have proven their credentials in national karting championships as a minimum and be fluently English. 

Interested young female drivers should contact their FIA National Sport Authorities, in order to submit their application to the FIA.
