Motorsport is one of the only sports where men and women can compete as equals. However, as of today, only 1.5% of total licensees recorded in the world are women. FIA Girls On Track aims to increase that percentage by inviting young women from 12 to 18 years old to discover, for free, the different aspects of Motorsport and its industry through a set of activities and workshops.
EMPOWERING YOUNG GIRLS
The FIA Girls on Track is a true 360° project to empower young girls and promote gender equality in an innovative, engaging and positive manner. As Motorsport is also strongly linked to major industry, FIA Girls On Track gives the girls involved in the programme the chance to engage with career opportunities in all aspects of motorsport and beyond.
