The MSA has successfully applied for FIA grant funding on behalf of Dare To Be Different (D2BD) to widen the women in motorsport campaign’s reach.

The MSA teamed up with Susie Wolff to launch D2BD in January 2016. Just two years later, Germany and Australia are set to come on board through their respective national sporting Authorities.

Graham Stoker, FIA Deputy President for Sport, said: “The FIA has been following the Dare to be Different campaign with interest since it began and has kept a close eye on its progress in association with the MSA. Susie Wolff is an FIA Women in Motorsport Ambassador and she has created a great campaign.

“It has been a huge success in the UK and has caught the attention of other ASNs worldwide following Susie’s exciting presentation at last summer’s FIA Sport Conference, so we are pleased to be able to help with this funding for Germany, Australia and the UK through our FIA Sport Grant Programme.”
