In February 2021 we hosted our first Sydney Motorsport Park track familiarisation night and networking dinner. 

We met for a casual networking dinner in the Garage Cafe at SMSP, which was then followed by a tour of some of SMSPs corners. We parked at a few corners around the track and discussed driving lines and brake markers, whilst watching cars go round and round the track under lights. 

It was a great opportunity for Race Chix that are just starting out on their motorsport driving journey to learn about lines and brake markers before hitting the track themselves.

Virtual Networking Lunch

Brisbane Networking Lunch

In March 2020 we had a great afternoon celebrating International Women’s Day in Brisbane with fellow Race Chix across karting, rallying, bikes, circuit racing & motorsport enthusiasts.

The 2020 IWD theme was Each for Equal which is about Collective Individualism. We are all parts of a whole, with our individual actions, conversations, behaviors and mindsets having an impact on our larger society. And that’s what Race Chix is all about – individually we are part of the collective that is women in motorsport, no matter our motorsport genre or our level of involvement.

By connecting, supporting & collaborating as a collective we can challenge stereotypes, fight bias & broaden perceptions that motorsport is a male dominated sport.

Our pledge & call to action was to connect with fellow Race Chix across genres & support each other’s journey.

Sydney Women in Motorsport Networking Lunch

In February 2020 we held our first Sydney women in motorsport networking lunch to celebrate the start of the 2020 Supercars season. It was great to meet some new faces and talk all things motorsport for a few hours.
