Yeah, you are thinking what is new. There is a Danica Patrick and a Susie Stoddart, so what is all this excitement about. There is a reason for excitement, be assured. Last weekend the 2011 FIM World Motocross Championship kicked off at Sevlievo in Bulgaria. In this the first round of the 2011 championship the venue also hosted the first round of the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship. Now that is a cracker if there ever was one. Many years ago Damon Hill suggested that women be given their own championship separately as it happens in all other sports to attract more women to motorsport. The FIM seems to have heard him. So will there be a separate road racing championship for women bikers as well? Let’s hope so. Meanwhile the FIA and the FOM also should think along on these lines, right? What say you?
