It is finally Perth’s time to enjoy the FIA Girls on Track event with recent events in Tasmania and South Australia being held successfully. We were lucky enough to be invited along to the Sydney event back in May 2021 and will be also at the Perth event on Monday 25th October.
The Perth event will feature local talent including Laura Byrnes, Danielle Meyn, Tayla Dicker, April Welsh, Lauren Cornes and Telea Plummer.
Based on what we saw in Sydney, minus the motorsport Dad who WAY overstepped his boundaries, the environment created for the girls allows them to be themselves whilst also learning about various aspects of motorsport by competing in a series of workshops.
The workshops include simulator, fitness & reaction, pit stop challenge and STEM.
If there is one addition we’d love to see, and we might be biased, is media. Motorsport lacks, especially at grassroots level, a massive amount of female talent who we would love to see next to us at the track keeping us on our toes taking better photos and writing nicer stories than ours!
The Perth FIA Girls on Track event takes place on Monday 25th October 2021 at Driver Risk Management in Perth, however it is fully booked out.
