The Women of Australian Motor Sport (WAMS) and CAMS, in conjunction with the Singapore Motor Sports Association, has announced it is continuing the WAMS Officials Exchange Program with Singapore for a fifth year in a row.
Providing the opportunity for an experienced female CAMS accredited official to take part in the 2017 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, the exchange program between Australia and Singapore is one of WAMS’ signature events and has proven to be a highly successful endeavour for both countries in promoting and encouraging the participation of female motor sport officials.
Previous recipients include Michelle Luke (2013), Trisha Davidson (2014), Natalie Daish (2015) and Jacqueline Devereaux (2016) who have all taken invaluable learning experiences from their time in Singapore and applied them to their officiating roles in Australia.
WAMS Committee member and Officials Working Group representative Bernadette Cappello:“Each year has proven to not only strengthen relationships between Australian and Singaporean officials, but has also provided recipients with inspiration and encouragement to develop their skills and take on more senior officiating roles in Australia. We’re excited to be able to continue the program this year and share this experience with the worthy applicant.”
To be eligible for the 2017 program, applicants must be a female CAMS Accredited Official of Bronze level or above and be free to travel to Singapore during September 13-18, 2017.
WAMS Committee member and Officials Working Group representative Bernadette Cappello said that each year has proven to not only strengthen Australian official relationships with Singapore, but enable the recipient to expand their expertise and skillset in pitlane.
