The FIA Girls On Track 2021 calendar has been confirmed with at least 15 events taking place across the country.
 
The initiative is a global, not-for-profit initiative giving school girls aged 8-18 a unique insight into the world of motorsport through workshops and activity days.
 

Having started this year’s campaign with the successful outing at the Shannons International Women's Day Festival in Broadford on International Women’s Day, the program will see further events take place at a number of national events and special one-off days this year.

Following on from the first event of the year, the program’s next appearance will be at Sydney Motorsport Park as part of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships round.
 
Returning to Victoria for the next two events at Port Melbourne Go-kart Track and Wodonga TAFE in June, Tasmania will be the next major event complementing the RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship round in July.
 

Visits to Queensland’s Triple Eight workshop and Norwell Motorplex in August are followed by September’s Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships round at Sandown, before a busy October sees two events in South Australia over one weekend and Western Australia’s first and only event.

The program then returns to Sydney Motorsport Park towards the start of November before heading to Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix later in the month for the final workshop of the year.
 

Girls On Track Australia also recently confirmed two new ambassadors with Shannen Kiely and Jessica Nicholson recently joining the ranks in 2021.
