Motor sport’s world governing body, FIA, awards grant funding to drive female talent
In keeping with the international theme, Dare to be Different is delighted to have been awarded a grant from the FIA to further the scope of D2BD. The world governing body of motor sport will support D2BD in the UK through its association with the MSA. In addition, two exciting new territories will come on board – Germany and Australia – whose national sporting authorities will start Dare to be Different programmes in 2018.
President for Sport, Federation Internationale de l’Automobile says
“The FIA has been following the Dare to be Different campaign with interest since it began and has kept a close eye on its progress in association with the MSA. Susie Wolff is an FIA Women in Motorsport Ambassador and she has created a great campaign,” said FIA Deputy President for Sport, Graham Stoker. “It has been a huge success in the UK and has caught the attention of other ASNs worldwide following Susie’s exciting presentation at last summer’s FIA Sport Conference, so we are pleased to be able to help with this funding for Germany, Australia and the UK through our FIA Sport Grant Programme. The Federation is committed to championing female participation in the sport, and in addition to the ongoing activities of the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission, we are delighted to give these ASNs our support so that they can further develop the Dare to be Different initiative.”
