Welcome to the Women of Australian Motor Sport website
Women of Australian Motor Sport (WAMS) was founded in 2010 to act as an interface with the FIA Women & Motor Sport Commission (WMC).
Our mission is to increase female participation in all disciplines and positions within motor sport in Australia.
This includes (but is not limited to) disciplines such as circuit racing, drag racing, speedway, rally, off road, drifting, motorkhana/khana, autocross, hillclimbing, sprints and positions such as competitors, engineers, mechanics, pit crew, media personnel, administrators and officials.
Applications now open for Women’s Cross Country Rally opportunity
WAMS is encouraging Australian female drivers to apply for a worldwide women’s cross country rally selection and training program that will see a fully-funded drive offered for the 2016 Sealine Cross Country. Launched worldwide in association with the FIA’s Women In Motorsport Commission (WIMC), the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF) and its President Nasser Al- Attiyah have created this opportunity to help more women into motor sport, with the selection process ultimately resulting in both a driver and co-driver being offered to compete.
The ‘WIMC-QMMF Women’s Cross Country Selection’ appeals to women drivers and co-drivers aged between 18 and 35, and Australian candidates are encouraged to apply through WAMS. The initial selection process will see all racing CVs judged on merit, before one applicant will be offered for consideration to the WIMC.
