The world of sim racing is no place for a woman

Well that’s a sad headline. And unfortunately it’s true.

When every face on a Twitch stream is a man’s, except for the few
When trolls harass women for how they look. Rather than celebrating how they race
When any racer who doesn’t fit the ‘mould’ is already on the backfoot
Not because they lack skill. But because our culture hasn’t figured out how to welcome them as equals yet

And yes, we’re talking about this on International Women’s Day while only having one female in our own roster of 42 racers
But that’s exactly why we’re talking about it

We want to be the most inclusive racing team out there
So clearly we need to do things differently


We’re bringing women from gaming and motorsport together to discuss the issue and educate ourselves, with Twitch panels, chats and Q+A sessions. Look for upcoming events and use #WomenToTheTrack to join the discussion


There are lots of factors contributing to this problem. We’re on the hunt for an academic partner to help us research and discover what these causes are, and how to solve them


The lack of women in Team Fordzilla is on us. We know they’re out there, we just haven’t been looking hard enough. So we’ll be searching high and low for the best racers, who just so happen to be women. Plus, we’ll be starting a mentor programme to inspire and upskill a diverse generation of future racers

This isn’t a problem that’s resolved in three short steps
But you can’t win the race if you don’t start it
So let’s get on the track
