FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission Director, Nita Korhonen:

“We have been discussing with Michèle (Mouton) for quite a long time about organizing an event together. Now with the help of the city of Lahti we have the perfect opportunity. The conference will be held the weekend before the official MotoGP tests at the new KymiRing circuit and will take place in the beautiful Vierumäki Conference Center close to the circuit. We believe that speakers will not only inspire and astonish the audience with their stories but they will also provide concrete answers to important questions such as how to get young people involved in motorsport, how to develop gears for women and what is the future in motorsport and importance of electric series such as MotoE and Formula E.”

FIA Women in Motorsport Commission President, Michèle Mouton:

“Since we formed the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission we have collaborated with our FIM Women in Motorcycling colleagues, sharing ideas, best practices and learning about the challenges women face in our respective sports. We have seen from previous activities that when we combine resources we can make an even bigger impact. We are delighted to be co-hosting this first world conference and I am convinced together we can help to increase the participation of more women in both four and two-wheel drive mixed motorsport.”
