A trio of South Africa’s female National Superbike riders, Nicole van Aswegen, Janine Davies (Mitchell) and Loumari Grobler, are headed for the Albacete Racing Circuit in Spain to participate in an FIM training camp dedicated to female motorsport competitors.
National Superbike riders, Nicole van Aswegen, Janine Davies (Mitchell) and Loumari Grobler will undergo training at the the Albacete Racing Circuit in Spain in October 2013. The training camp, dedicated to female motorsport competitors, is the first of its kind and organised by the International Motorcycle Federation.
‘HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR LADIES’
The camp will run from October 4-6 2013 and 26 women from around the world will participate. It will be held over the same weekend as the European Road Racing championships at Albacete.
MotorSport South Africa (MSA) said the trip is "a huge opportunity for our ladies to show their talent by being exposed to a field of international riders".
"The trip will be a unique opportunity for female riders to practice on a dedicated circuit, develop their knowledge and ability and get specific tips from professionals about road-racing.
"The camp will help them to improve their skill, stimulate and prepare them to participate in National, European or future World championships and create awareness about the presence of women in motorcycle road-racing.”
TRACK TRAINING AND CAREER GUIDANCE
The training camp will be supervised by two experienced professional trainers specialised in road racing. The camp will provide technical, track knowledge, practical training sessions as well guidance in dealing with media and sponsorship. Attendees will also be provided with career planning from special guests.
MSA adds : "We are very proud of the three ladies who will be true South African ambassadors and wish them the best of luck."
