Celebrating Women In Motorsport
We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate Women in Motorsport and take you behind the scenes with our young female Championship Driver - Kiarra Jones, a Rising Star in Formula Ford Racing
Breaking Barriers and Chasing Dreams...
In the world of Motorsport, there are trailblazers who break barriers and inspire others to pursue their passion, regardless of gender. One such remarkable talent is Kiarra Jones, a formidable force in Formula Ford racing. Today, we celebrate her incredible journey and highlight the importance of encouraging more female drivers to embrace the thrill of Motorsport.
Kiarra Jones is not just a driver; she's a trailblazer. As one of the very few female drivers competing in Formula Ford, she's rewriting the script and showing the world that talent knows no gender. Currently, Kiarra holds the impressive position of 2nd in the Formula Ford 1600 Championship with only one Race remaining for the season, a testament to her skill, dedication, and unwavering determination.
Putting in the work!
Kiarra's journey into the world of Motorsport was driven by a passion that knew no boundaries. Her journey has been defined by countless hours of hard work, rigorous training, and a love for the sport that is nothing short of inspiring. But what truly sets her apart is her commitment to being a role model for aspiring female drivers.
The Power of Diversity...
At Anglo Racing Academy, we believe in the power of diversity in Motorsport. Kiarra's journey embodies the spirit of breaking stereotypes and proving that talent is the ultimate qualifier in racing. Her success sends a powerful message to all young girls with a dream of being on the track – "You can do it too."
We are proud to support Kiarra in her racing endeavours and champion her as an ambassador for female participation in Motorsport. But our commitment doesn't stop there. We encourage all aspiring female drivers to explore the world of Motorsport and embrace the thrill of Racing.
Motorsport Australia and the FIA offers invaluable resources and support for female drivers looking to take their first steps in Racing or Motorsport careers. Their commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in Motorsport aligns perfectly with our mission at Anglo Racing Academy. We encourage you to explore their resources and take that first step towards your Racing dreams. Some of these resources can be found further down.
Kiarra Jones is a shining example of what can be achieved with passion, talent, and a determination to break barriers. Her journey is an inspiration to all, and her success is a testament to the limitless possibilities that await in the world of Motorsport.

Coming from a different path into motor sport, I love to encourage girls to chase their dreams regardless of their past, where they come from or who tells them they can’t.” Instagram: @emilyduggan
