GET in gear for a thrilling new exhibition, ‘Women in Motorsport’ which opens at Coventry Transport Museum in the new year.
The exhibition runs during Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture and will launch on January 29, 2022 and run until May, 2022.
It’s the product of a coming together of motorsport companies, individuals, organisations and heritage partners to celebrate the aspirational achievements and historical perspectives on motor racing, as well as current developments such as grass-roots and pro-racing.
Something for all ages is promised too, from sensational vehicles such as the Jaguar Racing Formula E and Kaye Petrie’s race car, to famed trophies, examples of cutting-edge technologies and rare interviews.
Further highlights include Limited Fundz Junior Dragster, a Williams Racing F1 Show Car, the college Greencar Kit as well as racing gear from Susie Wolff, Sarah Moore, and even Sebastian Vettel’s famous Same Love t-shirt from the Hungarian Grand Prix.
But that’s not all – the innovative exhibition will also feature many interactive elements, including a pit-stop experience, DIY-tracks and projections which allow visitors to race their own designs against each other.
Visitors will also be able to fuel up their knowledge about the front runners of female motorsport and explore their varied roles within the industry through personal stories, as well as capture an exciting glimpse of the future of STEM.
