The Girls On Track Karting Challenge - Sweden


The FIA, together with nine partners, are implementing in 2018 and 2019 a competition model for the promotion and development of young women in motor sport at grassroots level.

The FIA European Young Women Programme will contribute to the advancement of the FIA’s educational and social roles, and support its national sporting authorities (ASNs) with their motor sport growth as each strive to raise aware of gender equality and increase the participation of women in the sport.

The eight ASN partners involved in the project are:

Royal Automobile Club of Belgium (RACB)

AKK-Motorsport (Finland)

Deutscher Motor Sport Bund E.V. (DMSB, Germany)

Knac Nationale Autosport Federatie (KNAF, Netherlands)

Polski Zwiazek Motorowy (PZM, Poland)

Federação Portuguesa de Automobilismo e Karting (FPAK, Portugal)

Slovenska asociacia motoristickeho sportu (SAMŠ, Slovakia)

Svenska Bilsportförbundet (SBF, Sweden)

In addition, the project is academically partnered by CDES-PROGESPORT at the University of Limoges (the Centre for the Law and Economics of Sport), which will deliver a crucial aspect of the project. A sociological analysis by CDES will support and analyse the programme and make recommendations to the sport’s stakeholders and public institutions on how to increase the level of female participation and help fight gender stereotypes. This report, presented at the end of the project, will become a reference outcome for the project.

The project FIA European Young Women Programme is supported by the European Union through the Erasmus + Programme. The European Union supports sport related projects since 2014 in various areas including societal aspects and gender equality.
