14 year old Letisha Conn has been named as the June winner of the Formula Female Star Drive, an initiative set up to showcase female talent in Irish Motorsport.
Letisha currently leads her class in the Northern Ireland Rallysport Championship.Her third place finish at Nutts Corner and class win at Aghadowey during June earned the Armagh girl a nomination. As well as the Rallysport Championship, Letisha also competes in the Ecosse Junior Scottish 1000 Championship this year, where she drives a Peugeot 106, as opposed to the Citroen C1 which she normally drives.
The Star Drive initiative,is run by Formula Female, an organisation set up by Irish Hockey Star Nicci Daly to encourage more women to get involved in motorsport. They have teamed up with Ireland’s premier indoor Karting centre, Kylemore Karting to launch a new monthly award for females in all disciplines of Motorsport.
Starting in May 2019, they name a monthly Star Drive, picked by a panel from all motorsport disciplines all across the country. The monthly winner is the subject of a press release from Leo Nulty Promotions, a feature on Motorsport.ie and a cash award of €100. Letisha joins Kayleigh Cole on the exclusive list with the July winner to be named in the coming weeks.
When the last monthly winner is named in September, all of the winners will be invited to Kylemore Karting for a Media Training Day, and of course, a race! The initiative aims to recognise, reward and highlight the performance of women in motorsport in Ireland.
To be eligible for the award, competitors simply have to log onto formulafemale.org and register their details.
Nicole Drought, Formula Female Ambassador: “This really is what it is all about. At just age 14, Letisha has already established herself as a frontrunner in her discipline.It is important to recognise and reward young talent in any sport. Letisha is a worthy winner of our June award and we look forward to following her career in the future”
