For the first time, an FIA Girls on Track event was held in Asia, Jakarta on June 3rd ahead of the ABB FIA Formula E race. It was an exciting experience for 100 local girls, supported by FIA member club, Ikatan Motor Indonesia.

FIA Girls on Track, the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission’s grassroots programme, invites young women, between 8 and 18 years old, to immerse themselves into the motor sport world in an innovative, engaging, and positive manner.

On the Jakarta Track, the FIA, Ikatan Motor Indonesia, Formula E and the teams mobilised together to educate and inspire the girls on the potential career paths and opportunities open to them in the motor sport industry.

The activities were centred around three key pillars: education, racing and career including: careers talks with key role models involved in the motor sport, health and wellbeing education, garage tours, simulators and much more.

The global partners, ABB and DHL both organised activities related to their specific fields and highlighted the important roles they play in the championship. The young women also had the opportunity to be guided by female engineers and logistic managers.

All girls around the world should have access to the world of motor sport and its many career opportunities. FIA Girls on Track provides them a unique opportunity to approach and enjoy them. The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has been hosting the FIA Girls on Track events since the programme’s inception, in inviting young women since 2019 during racing weekends, attracting almost 2,000 participants in total.

The FIA is delighted to increase its outreach in key markets and grow the programme across new territories such as Asia, benefitting countless young women and providing them access to new learning materials and opportunities.
