Three San Francisco-based competitors have applied for the international Formula Woman competition and will undertake their on-track assessment at Sonoma Raceway on Wednesday, November 10th.
Launched to find the next female motor racing driver, Formula Woman is a motorsport initiative for women of all ages with little or no experience to have an assessment at their local racetrack.
On Wednesday, Audrey, Sherry, and Tati will undertake a karting, fitness, and written assessment with Sonoma Raceway chosen as the ideal host due to their professionalism and commitment to the competition.
Should either of them be successful, they will travel to the UK in 2022 for the final shootout in a bid to win a fully sponsored seat in next year’s GT Cup Championship.
Graeme Glew, Formula Woman founder, said: “The interest from around the world has been incredible, from Australia to Europe and South America to North America, the Formula Woman competition has been driven by social media as well as local media. It’s very clear that women in motorsport is here to challenge what has traditionally been a male dominated sport.”
Jill Gregory, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Sonoma Raceway, commented: “This is a great opportunity for three local women to make their mark in motorsports. This is an amazing programme that is giving opportunities to women around the world to break down more barriers in motorsports. We’re extremely excited for the role that Sonoma Raceway will play in helping these women achieve their dreams.”
