Ana Carrasco “proud” to be in gender initiatives

the spanish pilot Ana Carrasco, the only woman to dispute the motorcycle world championship in the Moto3 category, highlighted, during the presentation of the study “#They drive without barriers” that has been carried out in Madrid and in which María José Aparicio, deputy deputy director of training of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has also participated, who is “proud as a woman to participate in this type of initiative”.

“I am very proud to belong to this initiative to achieve gender equality and I think it is important that we are aware of the barriers that women face in their day-to-day driving and I am surprised by the fact that fifty percent of women have received sexist comments while drivingthe truth is that it impresses”, recognized Ana Carrasco.

“I come from a sport that is historically male and I am one of the few women who compete in the world championship, but It is a task of perseverance and having people who believe in you, but it is true that support from companies is needed and people who believe in women and in competition”, assured the Murcian pilot.

Carrasco considers that “both a woman and a man can compete in the same and women can be in the world championship to stop talking about gender differences in society, and these campaigns are very good to put an end to this type of ideology”.

“In my sport, the fundamental problem is that there are few girls who practice this sport and that is why it is normal that few reach the World Cup, but it is true that since my first year in the world championship, in 2013, I have noticed an important change in the championship and that is that there are more and more women working in it in different sectors,” said the Moto3 rider.

“They are a thousand jobs that many women already do in the motorcycling world championship and, in that sense, much progress has been made, what’s more, I would say that fifty percent of the ‘paddock’ are already women, but more work would have to be done at the base of motorcycling so that there are more female pilots”, admitted Carrasco.
