Celebrating Success at the FIA Prize Giving in Baku

What an incredible way to close out the year! 🎉 I had the honor of attending the FIA prize giving in Baku, where I proudly accepted the European Top Methanol Drag Racing Championship trophy on behalf of my amazing team. It was a weekend filled with gratitude, excitement, and a true celebration of the hard work and dedication that went into achieving this milestone.

I am immensely thankful for the invitation to this prestigious event and for the recognition bestowed upon us. Standing on that stage, surrounded by the best in motorsports, was a surreal and humbling experience. The atmosphere in Baku was electric, and the positive energy radiated throughout the venue.

Representing the drag racing community on such a distinguished platform was a true privilege. It’s an honor to bring the thrill and excitement of drag racing to the forefront. While I was the only drag racer present, my hope is to see more of our passionate community gracing that stage in the future. The roar of our engines deserves to echo alongside the finest in motorsports.

Similarly, being the only woman to receive a prize that weekend was a moment of gratitude and reflection. My hope is that more talented women in racing join me on that stage, sharing in the recognition they rightfully deserve.

As we reflect on this incredible achievement, I look forward to a future where the diversity of motorsports is celebrated on every stage. A heartfelt thank you to the FIA for hosting such a spectacular event, and to everyone who has been a part of this journey.
