Mumbai February 2018: Red Bull Catch Up, a one of its kind amateur Go Kart tournament for women, will kick off its qualifiers tomorrow in Mumbai & Gurgaon at SMAAASH, a popular sports and entertainment centre!
Unfortunately, like many sports, go karting can appear to be male dominated at the highest level. However, there are many inspiring female drivers out there and the only way to tackle the male stereotyping is for more women to get karting! Red Bull Catch Up aims to provide female amateur racers & racing enthusiasts with the chance to "touch" the pro side of karting and get a competitive but fun experience down at the track. It’s a karting tournament designed to find the fastest female amateur kart racer in India. At stake is the possibility of being crowned the first Red Bull Catch Up National Champion by India’s female racing sensation Mira Erda
Mira Erda is India’s first Female driver to compete in one of the highest classes of Formula Racing in the country after signing up for the Euro JK series in the JK Tyre-FMSCI National Racing Championship. On Red Bull Catch Up being a great initiative for women drivers, Mira Erda said, "Ever since I started racing as a 9-year-old I have been dreaming of becoming a Formula 1 racer and would like to see many Indian Women competing at the highest level in racing. Thanks to Red Bull, this initiative is the perfect platform for aspiring female racers in the country to test and showcase their racing skills in a safe and confined environment. I wish all the drivers the best and hope to see a lot of girls pushing pedal to the metal at this tournament.”
