Welcome to this latest edition of the FIA’s AUTO+ Women in Motorsport newsletter. In this edition we mark the achievements of the women involved in one of the Commission’s most recent initiatives - the Sealine Cross Country Rally Selection. Last year the Commission, in partnership with the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation, launched a search for new rallying talent, offering the prize of a fully-funded drive at the Sealine Rally to the best crew. In the end the level was so high that three crews were chosen and after a tough pre-event training schedule the women finally tested their mettle on the gruelling Sealine Cross Country Rally. You can read about their adventures in our cover story. Elsewhere, we focus on two drivers receiving commission support in 2016. First, we look at the exploits of Shion Tsujimoto in the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy and later we hear from the Commission’s first US racer, Ashley Freiburg, who is making waves in the world of Stateside sportscar racing. Finally, we celebrate some great starts to the season with Lucile Cypriano, who finished on the podium at the season opening round of the SEAT Leon Eurocup, and with Peugeot works rally co-driver Lara Vanneste who recently won in the German Rally Championship. We hope you enjoy this issue. Your AUTO+ team.
