Ferrari And The FIA’s Game-Changing Opportunity for Young Female Racing Drivers

The FIA Girls on Track – Rising Stars programme is returning for its fourth round, thanks to the joint efforts of Ferrari and the FIA. This programme opens the door for aspiring female motorsport talents, offering a golden chance to accelerate their journey into the racing world.

The programme will select sixteen young enthusiasts between 12 and 16 years of age, who will receive intensive training designed to turbocharge their racing careers. The top four will have the unique opportunity to advance to the final scouting camp at the heart of Ferrari’s operations in Maranello. This includes an expansive experience of tests, media events, workshops, as well as simulator and Formula 4 track training.

FIA Women in Motorsport Commission President, Deborah Mayer, expressed her thrill about the programme’s launch, saying, “I’m delighted to be launching the 2023 edition of the Girls on Track – Rising Stars programme with the opening of applications from around the world. This programme is a unique talent accelerator for young girls dreaming of a career in motor sport.”

She continued, “After three successful years, this fourth and final edition promises to be particularly popular and challenging, with an anticipated record number of entries thanks to the tremendous contribution of our ASNs.”

Mayer concluded by encouraging aspiring girls, “I only encourage all young girls with a passion for motor sport to sign up and try their luck at a human and sporting adventure that could change their lives. We look forward to discovering the candidates and helping them to develop their talent and seize key opportunities for a future in the sport.”

The programme’s victor may earn the chance to compete in the 2024 Formula 4, backed by the Iron Dames team. The other finalists will also reap benefits, gaining access to the “talent capsule” that supports their racing careers and offers a plethora of developmental opportunities.
