We are Females in Motorsport...

From global racing stars and TV presenters to mechanics and wind tunnel technicians, we at Females in Motorsport aim to share as many stories from those working in the industry.


We started out as just a small idea in our bedrooms and now we have reached over 5 million people across our articles and social media platforms. Now, we still are five girls working from our bedrooms, but we are even more determined to spread the inspiring anecdotes from those we are fortunate enough to chat to.


Alongside our interviews and blog posts, we strive to showcase up-and-coming drivers who are taking their first steps on the motorsport ladder. We are also committed to bringing updates from the motorsport paddock and providing a platform for you to check series results via our social media channels. 


We have a passion and we want to share it with you!
