Dare to be Different has announced that it will be holding an event at the 2016 Wales Rally GB.

The campaign, which is designed to get more female involvement in motorsport, will be holding their event on Wednesday 26 October at the Rally Village in Deeside, Flintshire.

Similar to previous Dare to be Different events held in the past, there will be 100 girls all aged around eight to eleven-years old, will get insights and experience into career opportunities in the FIA World Rally Championship.

Susie Wolff, Co-Founder of Dare to be Different said “We are delighted to add this WRC showcase to our schedule.

“From the outset, we planned five of these inspirational gatherings for schoolgirls. We then included an additional date around the British Grand Prix in July, and now another has been added reflecting our ambitions to demonstrate the breadth of opportunities available in our sport across all the various disciplines.

“The rally organisers and teams – as well as those at the neighbouring Toyota Engine Manufacturing Plant – have really embraced our cause and opened up areas of the Deeside Rally Village for our activities… all while preparing for a round of the World Championship!”

Wolff also added about her WRC driving experience with current Citroën Racing driver Kris Meeke.

“We are very grateful to all of them for making this possible. I visited the rally myself last year and was lucky enough to experience a passenger ride with Kris Meeke. I know they will get a wonderful insight in rallying and what it has to offer on lots of fronts.”
