The project initiated by FIM and Dorna Sports is set to commence its first series in 2024 and will primarily coincide with the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship.
“We are going to start with a women’s World Championship next year in circuit racing. Our plan is to have six races in Europe, and we are planning to do a single-make competition,” – FIM president Jorge Viegas said in a statement.
“We will try to have women from all over the world competing in this new championship. It will be organised mainly within the framework of the SBK World Championship.”
As per FIM Launches New Women Motorcycling Championship, The first season’s objective is to have at least six rounds, with two races per round, to establish a positive example for future female competitors and create opportunities for female riders to build a visible professional career in motorcycling.
A single bike supplier will be announced in due course, and the grid will compete on an equal footing.
“The best platform to start with is one brand, and we have already discussed this informally with the manufacturers,” – Viegas added.
“It’s a championship where we want women to be professionals. It’s not a move to another category, we want the women who race here to be able to earn a salary as drivers, as professionals. We hope to start in March or April next year.”
