AUTO + Women In Motorsport #14

Welcome to the latest edition of the FIA’s Women in Motorsport Newsletter.

Welcome to the latest edition of the FIA’s Women in Motorsport Newsletter.

This issue is particularly special as it marks the launch of the most ambitious project in the Commission’s eight-year history – The Girls on Track Karting Challenge.
Launched at the Geneva Motor Show this EU-funded initiative aims to give thousands of girls aged between 13 and 18 the opportunity to try motor sport in karting slalom events in eight European countries. By the end of the programme we hope to have discovered a new generation of female racing talent capable of competing at the highest levels.

Elsewhere in this edition we chat with FIA Women in Motorsport Ambassador and former F1 team boss Monisha Kaltenborn whose latest project takes her to the first step on the FIA’s single seater ladder, with the foundation of a new F4 team KDC Racing.

We also hear from newly elected board member of the Dansk Automobil Sports Union, Brigitte Klintskov Jerkel, who outlines the ASN’s successes in promoting female involvement in motor sport and its plans for the future.

Finally, we report on Formula 1’s latest female driver – Tatiana Calderón, the Alfa Romeo Sauber driver who has been elevated from development driver to the role of test driver.

Enjoy the read!
