ATLANTA, GA, USA, February 5, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Athenian Driving Academy, in a pioneering initiative aimed at revolutionizing the landscape of motorsports, is thrilled to announce the ultimate summer camp experience exclusively for girls with a passion for motorsports. Scheduled for June 23 – 29 at the prestigious Atlanta Motorsports Park, this one-of-a-kind program seeks to empower young women to make their mark in the motorsports industry, an area where they have been historically underrepresented.
Jeremy Porter, a leading figure in the world of motorsports and CEO of Atlanta Motorsports Park, shared his insights on the initiative, “I feel that women do not get their due in motorsports. During my time as an instructor for our junior kart discovery program, it was evident that the girls often outperformed the boys. This camp is our commitment to changing the narrative and creating more opportunities for women to impact the world of motorsports, just as they are making strides in other sectors.”
The Athenian Driving Academy Experience: A Summer Camp Like No Other
The Athenian Driving Academy’s summer camp is designed to be an intensive, week-long overnight adventure that offers participants an immersive track experience unlike any other. Limited to only 20 participants, this elite camp promises a comprehensive curriculum that includes karting training, controlled skid training, high-speed braking exercises, engaging Mr. Beast-like challenges, job shadowing opportunities, and exclusive dinners with professional drivers.
This Academy is particularly tailored for girls who dream of becoming the future inventors, engineers, and designers of automotive and motorsports technology. “We want them to have the hands-on experience of pushing a vehicle to its limit, to understand how it responds in ways they could never achieve in a standard driver’s ed class or on public roads,” stated Loxley Browne, CEO of Athenian and creator of the nonprofit’s pioneering driving academy.
Empowering the Next Generation of Female Motorsports Pioneers
Athenian Driving Academy’s initiative is not just about teaching driving techniques; it’s a bold step towards encouraging young women to explore and excel in STEM fields, particularly in engineering and design aspects related to automotive and motorsports. With no prior track experience required, the only prerequisites for applicants are a driver’s license and at least 20 hours of driving experience.
Applications for this groundbreaking camp are open until April 10, with a cap at 50 applications to ensure a highly selective and personalized experience. Prospective participants must be Athenian members, and the application process is designed to be as competitive as that of an Ivy League school, ensuring that only the most passionate and dedicated candidates are chosen.
