The FIA Women in Motorsport Commission announced the renewal of its partnership with the CIK-FIA. Following a call for candidatures inviting ASNs to put forward a young female talent aged from 13 to 15 to be granted a kart out of the 51 allocated for 2014 in this year’s edition of the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy, the place has been awarded to a young Spanish driver, Ms Marta Garcia (ESP).
The Drivers’ Commission, with the support of its Chairman, Emerson Fittipaldi, has prioritised further visibility for the FIA anti-doping campaign, increased promotion of the work by volunteers and officials, and the further strengthening of karting as an effective entry point into other motor sport categories.
