The Girls on Track | Federation Internationale de l'Automobile

NATIONAL SELECTIONS

Various Places,
 march-october 2018

Each country involved in the project will organise karting slalom events between March and October 2018, inviting all girls from 13 to 18 years old. The events will be set in highly frequented locations, follow identical regulations and track layout. The partners expect more than 3200 participants in total during the national selections phase.

What is karting slalom?

Karting slalom is a popular sport variant of karting where participants complete obstacle challenges built of cones in a small tarmac area. The slalom can be successfully completed by beginners and focuses on the driver’s dexterity and ability to react.

The national selection events will include three phases:

Phase 1 One practice run
Phase 2 Two timed runs
Phase 3 A motivation interview

To ensure fairness and impartiality, sport coordinators will be present on site.

Our three sport coordinators are Nicolas Klinger, Jutta Kleinschmidt and Tiina Lehmonen.

Aside from providing an experience in a kart, the events will also highlight road safety initiatives, open up the work of the FIA, our ASNs and motor sport in general to a new and young audience, and potentially encourage females to get involved in any number of different areas.
