Johannesburg, South Africa – Fabienne Lanz and T4 Series are proud to announce, as part of their global women and inclusivity campaign, the upcoming 3-day girls camp, aimed at inspiring and empowering young girls to pursue their passion for motorsport.
The Women in Motorsport 3-day girls camp takes place at the Formula K Race Track in Benoni from July 4th to July 6th, 2023. The camp will provide a unique opportunity for 15 girls aged between 12 and 20 years old to learn the fundamentals of motorsports, including driving techniques, kart/car mechanical terminologies and understanding, race craft and strategies.
Over the three days, the girls will be led by SA Kart Champion and multiple World Winner Fabienne Lanz along with other leaders such as B- Fit’s Bernato Breedt, coach to SA Olympic Athletes, who will share their knowledge and skills with the young drivers.
“We are thrilled to be hosting our first-ever 3-day girls camp at the Formula K Race Track in Benoni,” said Fabienne Lanz, global ambassador of Women in Motorsport. “This camp is all about inspiring young girls to pursue their dreams and break down the stereotypes that still exist in the male-dominated world of motorsport.”
One girl will be sponsored by EG Evolved Simulators to attend the camp, providing a life-changing opportunity for a girl who may not have had the chance otherwise. The sponsored girl will be chosen based on a 1-page essay and helmet design submission, where they will be asked to explain why they are passionate about motorsport and how attending the camp will help them achieve their personal goals.
The camp will include a range of activities, including go-karting, simulator sessions, Kart /Car maintenance workshops, and motivational talks from female leaders in the industry. The motorsport campers will also have the opportunity to meet and network with other like-minded girls who share their passion for motorsport.
Visions and Goals are of utmost importance for our teenagers. Champion Fabienne has created a world-leading Vision Board called, Targets Goals and Rainbows, in which she will take each individual through. Focusing on their skills, passions, talents, dreams and the importance of living a balanced life and having fun for the soul.
“We want to create a community of empowered and motivated young women who are passionate about motorsport,” said Mark French. “Our goal is to inspire and support these young ladies so that they can go on to achieve great things in the industry.”
The Women in Motorsport 3-day girls camp is open to girls from all backgrounds and levels of experience. Applications will open on April 10th and close on May 31st. The camp fee is ZAR 15,000 per person, which includes: an exclusive goodie hamper which supports women’s skills projects, exclusive journals, merchandise, nutritionist courses, physical training fun, classroom lessons by accredited officials within motorsport, media as well as etiquette, lunch, and a certificate upon completion of the camp.
