We need women

Motor Sport News - - Santa Pod At 50 -

I agree with Ian Mills’ col­umn ( Mo­tor­sport News, March 19). We need more women in mo­tor­sport and ju­niors as well.

Why are more women more in­ter­ested in rugby union? Eng­land is the women’s rugby union world cham­pi­ons and, in women’s foot­ball, Eng­land’s women fin­ished in third place in the 2015 World Cup. Im­por­tantly, the women’s foot­ball World Cup was shown on the BBC.

Bernie Ec­cle­stone’s com­ments about women in mo­tor­sport have also been very un­help­ful in the past.

Mo­tor­sport is mostly on pay TV th­ese days and that can’t help the is­sue, but mo­tor rac­ing needs to em­brace fe­male com­peti­tors and catch up with other sports that al­ready do this.
