As part of its new “European Young Girls Programme”, the FIA has set up the first “Girls on track karting challenge”, to help promote motorsport among girls between the ages of 13 & 18. The program will run over the course of the next two years.
Over the course of its first year, karting events will be set up in urban locations around Europe with eight national sporting authorities including Belgium, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Sweden, with the aim of reaching over 3000 girls between the ages of 13 and 18.
In March 2019, three selected girls from each of the country's events, will pit themselves against each other in a European final in Le Mans for the chance to be among the six drivers selected for the European team.Those six winners will be put into FIA driving camps and supported through sporting and educational programmes. The 'Girls On Track' programme will come to an end with a final event in Brussels in the autumn of 2019.
