Iron Lynx, the motorsport squad and lab founded by Andrea Piccini and Sergio Pianezzola and Iron Dames, have announced that they have signed an agreement with the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) and the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission to support the FIA Girls on Track – Rising Stars programme.
The Cesena, Emilia-Romagna-based team has also announced that it will run Maya Weug in the Italian Formula 4 Championship. Weug will join Leonardo Fornarolli and rookie Piero Armanni in the seven-round championship that opens at Le Castellet on May 16.
Iron Dames’ Deborah Mayer is delighted to be working with Ferrari and the FIA as the project to promote women in motorsport develops.
“We are honoured and incredibly proud to be working with Ferrari Driver Academy and the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission on this amazing project that will allow us to support the next generation of promising female racers”, said Deborah Mayer.
Commenting on Maya Weug’s 2021 Italian Formula F4 campaign, Deborah Mayer said;
“Iron Lynx is looking forward to the year ahead, not only by providing Maya with a competitive car in her debut season in the Italian Formula 4 Championship but also top notch technical support. What’s more, we are also looking forward to getting to know many more young female talents through the partnership.”
Iron Dames, in partnership with Iron Lynx, had announced earlier in 2021 that it will be competing in the European Le Mans Series, the FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans as well as the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Europe.
