Susie Wolff will appear at Autosport International and will launch the details of a new initiative in conjunction with the Motor Sports Association (MSA).
Susie has been racing since the age of eight and went on to join Williams Martini Racing in 2012. Her three years with the team were historical and in this time Wolff became the first female in 22 years to drive on a Grand Prix weekend. In November 2015, Susie confirmed her retirement from professional motorsport.
Details of the initiative will be announced at stand 2840 at 11:30am on Thursday 14th January. Susie is also set to appear on the Autosport Stage on Saturday 16th.
Susie said: “When I decided to retire, I called Rob Jones, CEO of the MSA, who immediately shared my enthusiasm and passion. We very quickly put a great team together and are proud to launch our initiative at Autosport International.
“Our sport is performance based so gender is irrelevant. The opportunities are out there, we aim to inspire and drive female talent to make sure in the long term our sport is diverse.”
Ian France, Show Director, Autosport International, said: “We’re really pleased that Susie will be announcing her new initiative at Autosport International in January. She is a real inspiration to women and we are excited to learn more about the campaign she has developed with the MSA.”
