Girls having a go through Scout Motorsport
This weekend saw the Scout Motorsport Club of SA run their second Junior Development Program (JDP) for 2019 along with a Come and Try Practice Day at Adelaide International Raceway.
The 15 participants, 9 males and 6 females including 15 year old Amelia who came over from Melbourne for the experience as they learnt about CAMS, apparel, safety, car control including starts and changing gears, corner apex’s and braking zones.
We we thrilled to host Nathan Green as the President of the Circuit Excel Association of SA who provided passenger rides to allow participants the opportunity to experience a Circuit standard race car and see where Grassroots Motorsport can take you.
Kristen Bailey, the President of Scout Motorsport Club of SA and Deputy Chair of the CAMS Australian Women in Motorsport Commission said ‘its great to see some many girls prepared to get out and have a go at Motorsport rather than leaving it to boys. We encourage female participation at all our our events as officials, drivers or pit crew and look forward to welcoming more female participation as our program continues to grow.’
